Senator Turban Durbin

HT to Scott at Powerline for coining Turban Durbin (or at least making me aware of it).

Turban Durbin is trying to squirm out of the fan-spray he created with his statements from the floor of the Senate the other day.

Senator Turbin claims he was not likening the troops to Nazis. Let us look at what he said: .

On one occasion, the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold. On another occasion, the [air conditioner] had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees.

...If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime--Pol Pot or others--that had no concern for human being.

Senator Turban Durbin whether or not you were criticizing the troops is completely irrelevant in this matter since where does it come up in your idiotic statement? I will not even credit you for trying that dodge. You are not being attacked for attacking the troops. A reflex leftists have acquired I guess.

No, Senator Turban Durbin I don't think of Nazi concentration camps when hearing of three halal squares per day. I don't think of Nazi interrogators stopped at turning the air con way up, they [The Nazis] certainly did not stop at making it uncomfortably hot, IIRC Nazi guards ran crematoriums that burned people like so many piles of coal.

Senator Turban Durbin your idiocy can not be explained away by saying you were not blaming the troops. It perhaps can be explained away be an appalling lack of knowledge of history or such a blind hatred for our President you have lost sanity.
