Durbin Loses Spine

It appears that yesterday's post about Sen. Durbin's strength under fire was premature. Today, Sen. Durbin got on his knees and begged forgiveness from the right. He needn't have. His comments were right on the money, even if he wasn't quite correct in choice of examples and words.

Part of the reason Democrats do so badly these days is that people don't know what we stand for. When we give in to the right-wing noise machine, we only encourage that belief. We must be resolute, we must have backbone, we must speak up for the truth and not back down. Today, Sen. Durbin has done us all a disservice.
