So the pro-torture right demanded an apology from Dick Durbin for those mean nasty comments he made, and though none was called for, Dick gave them one anyway -- but, of course, now they've determined it wasn't good enough. Guess we'll have to appeal to Miss Manners for a final ruling on the Good Enough/Not Good Enough debate, but until we hear from her, allow us to ask when we're going to get our apologies from the following folks:
· George W. Bush, for lying about the circumstances under which UN weapons inspectors were forced to leave Iraq.
· Bill Frist, for claiming Terri Schiavo "respond[ed] to visual stimuli" when she was, in fact, blind; for thinking he could even make that diagnosis without ever even having met Schiavo in person; and for then falsely claiming he never made that diagnosis to begin with.
· Ed Klein, author of The Truth [sic] About Hillary, for just making shit up about Hillary Clinton (and Patrick Moynihan).
· This idiot, for not even doing the five seconds' worth of Googling that would've informed him legendary gay-basher Fred Phelps is, in fact, not a liberal; and for not doing the respectable thing when he was found out, which would be to admit he made a gigantic, mound-of-flaming-poo, ass-out-of-you-and-me assumption that turned out to be dead wrong.
So the way I see it, even if Durbin's apology was bullshit, y'all Republicans are still six apologies behind. Make you a deal: You take care of three of those, and we'll get Durbin to work on a new one.
