With friends like these...

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "If it is Dick Durbin in trouble, then something is wrong."

Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) showing just how clueless some on the left can be. She isn't exactly helping Durbin the Turban by keeping attention on his stupidity.

The left has received its talking points over this flap: criticize the right for "changing the subject" or "diverting attention from the real issue." Folks, in an era that (for better or worse) is governed by the sound bite, any politician must be keenly aware of what he/she is saying. Durbin merely parroted what the left thinks of our soldiers but aren't courageous enough to say themselves.

We hear from the left that poor word choice shouldn't mask the points they're trying to make. Well Hell's Bells, you leftist morons! Why, then, do you have inarticulate jerks like Dean and Durbin speaking for your party if you think they do a terrible job of articulating your views? I would argue that they're doing a fine job of articulating the left's true views, but the negative fallout from their comments wasn't quite what you people had in mind, now is it?

You liberals need to understand something: words mean things! If you're going to make an analogy in order to make a point, choose your analogy (and its components, i.e. words) carefully...lest you wind up looking like the idiots we know you to be!
