Dick Durbin Should Resign

America is a nation at war. And yesterday, Democratic whip Senator Dick Durbin took to the Senate floor and equated our servicemen with the minions in evil regimes like the Nazis, the Soviet Communists and the Pol Pot Communists.

He has handed our enemies a propaganda victory, slandered the military, and perhaps even endangered our soldiers. Any public servant with a modicum of patriotism would apologize, clarify to the world that he was wrong and then RESIGN. If he won't resign, he should be censured by the Senate. Such remarks cannot be allowed to stand without an official, institutional rebuke.

To hear such America-hating venom spewing from the mouth of a top elected official is beyond the pale. The question is whether the Senate -- and the American people as a whole -- are willing to hold Senator Durbin to any standard of conduct.

The silence of the Democrats -- their failure to rebuke Durbin -- is deafening. And instructive.
