Dicky's Retraction

Senator Dick Durbin has finally "apologized" after putting it in his mouth with his infamous gulag comments. It's unfortunate that Dicky took so long before choking on his words.

"I am sorry if anything I said caused any offense or pain to those who have such bitter memories of the Holocaust, the greatest moral tragedy of our time. Nothing, nothing should ever be said to demean or diminish that moral tragedy.

"I am also sorry if anything I said cast a negative light on our fine men and women in the military. ... I never ever intended any disrespect for them. Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them I extend my heartfelt apology," Durbin said, choking on his words.

If you can call that an apology. One can only wonder if his tears are for those who he has harmed or himself? Chalk another one up for the blogosphere.

UPDATE: According to ScrappleFace there is a leak the Durbin apology draft differs from the final version. So what does it all mean? Perhaps he edits his work like the Bloke does. Conspiracists beware.

Whatever he's choking on it can't be just his foot.
