Blackfive, BMIB* and Chicago resident, comes back from a business trip and comments on the Durbin remarks:
I think that Durbin is making the same mistake the Democrats made with Kerry - they are underestimating the military/veteran voting block. Illinois has many National Guardsmen and Reservists deployed (or just returned from deployment).And/or Durbin thinks we’re all idiots who can’t read or think and who watch cartoons on TV all day rather than the news or CSPAN. Or surf the Internet for pr0n instead of reportage and opinion. Others have recently made this mistake with spectacularly devastating results.
There’s more really good stuff in Blackfive’s comments, including the words of two descendants of Holocaust survivors, one of which is a US Navy veteran. Two dogs; one fight.
