Tunes, tools, knaves and fools, take 2

The Standard has posted Hugh Hewitt’s outstanding column explicating Dick Durbin’s thoughts on Guantanamo: “Breaking the Durbin code.” Hugh performs a herculean task visiting the Augean stables of Durbin’s mind. The column valiantly performs a public service that none of the doyens of the mainstream media have even attempted. Hugh observes that Durbin’s comments last week represent “an escalation in the political rhetoric of the left, which is designed to undermine the public’s confidence in the military, the administration, and the war.”
On a related note, so to speak, Mark Steyn picks up in the New York Sun today where he left off in the Chicago Sun-Times yesterday: “Facing the music.” You won’t want to miss it.
