And for some reason, I find both sets of tears less than compelling. It only took Senator Dick Durbin a week to be told that calling our own troops Nazis is generally a no-no. So, did he man up and say, "Hey, i'm sorry, i'm a gigantic dumbass who hath put his foot in his mouth."? No, of course not. Tears get press. Ask Jim Bakker. Or Jimmy Swaggart.
Something tells me that Senator Dick got pressure from most, if not all of the power-wielding Democrats to make a big, public apology. Otherwise, this clown would likely still be standing by his remarks.
Link - Dick cries, I laugh.
