Took You Long Enough

Good boy. Now try not to say anything unbelievably stupid for a whole week. And Lileks is right, as he often is:

Of the Strib's [Minneapolis Star Tribune's] defense of Sen. Durbin I have nothing to say. Any editorial that describes Gitmo as a “hellhole” has no words left for any other actual holes o’hell, unless we’re going to layer hell like Dante, with different tiers for different states. I will note that more elderly people died of the Paris heat than appear to have perished from Gitmo conditions, but of course that doesn’t reflect on Paris, Parisiens, or the ability of the French to make air conditioners cheap and readily available.

UPDATE: Video of Durbin's apology, from the Political Teen, Via Wizbang.
