Time for a little outrage

Seems like the staff of Illinois senator Dick "the turban" Durbin is allegedly using the threat of IRS audits to suppress TV ads criticizing of his comparing of US Army troops at Guantanamo to Nazis, Soviet gulags and Pol Pol's despotic regime. Follow this link here and read all about it. Evidently NBC-5 and ABC-7 have already caved and are refusing to run the ads, though CBS-2 has run them. Durbin is looking weaker and weaker as a senator and more and more marginal to boot. Pretty soon, he and Howard Dean making appearances together as the democrats slip slowly into oblivion.

Come on!!!! Get a grip, Mr. Moderator.

Do you really think the NBC and ABC television stations in Chicago (both owned by the network, mind you) would buckle under? They would have a bigger story saying Durbin was trying to suppress the press.

Me thinks that possibly there was something in the ads that prompted them to be pulled. Or maybe like the first Air America station in Chicago they didn't pay their bills.

Finally, it was an overzealous staff member who made the comment, not Durbin. You know, like Nixon aides and not the President, planned the Watergate break-in.

I am not a fan of Durbin as he is a tad too conservative for me.

And now, some humor......

How many members of the Bush Administration does it take to change a light bulb?

1. One to deny that a light bulb needs to be changed.

2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the light bulb needs to be changed.

3. One to blame Clinton for burning out the light bulb.

4. One to tell the nations of the world that they are either responsible for changing the light bulb or for darkness.

5. One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Haliburton for the new light bulb.

6. One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor, standing on a stepladder under the banner: Lightbulb Change Accomplished.

7. One administration insider to resign and write a book documenting in detail how Bush was literally in the dark.

8. One to viciously smear #7.

9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George Bush has had a strong light bulb changing policy all along.

10. And finally one to confuse Americans about the difference between screwing a light bulb and screwing the country.

You are becoming tedious lefty. It says right in the first sentence "the staff." Moderator reported it correctly. And if I recall correctly, Tricky Dick resigned afterwards, taking responsibility for the actions of his aides. Hopefully, Durbin will be resigning shortly.

Hey Bush Boy, read my lips.

I didn't say our fair moderator said the senator made the comments. The point was that big tv stations would not cave in to even the senator.

Why am I tedious, because perhaps I make you examine your conscience?

TURBAN DURBAN got to be put out to pasture. E mail the networks and complain.
