Backing Down

Dickie Durbin just shuffled down to the Senate floor and made a pretty abject apology for the mindless blather he belched out last week. I doubt Durbin is any more sincere today than he was thoughful before. The political heat simply got too high, so he backed down.

The forced apology doesn't mean much. The damage is done, and al-Jazeera isn't likely to tout Dickie's retraction with much vigor. But I can guarantee you that Dickie's energetic defenders in the MSM and leftie blogosphere are awfully unhappy unhappy right now. He just cut them off at the knees.

At least now they have some idea of how the troops felt a week ago.
