A reader writes to comment on “Dick Durbin: Worse than stupid”:
In the many times I’ve testified in the Senate, I’ve only been abused and mistreated once–by Dick Durbin. A bully and a thug, for sure. The House is sort of a circus, so you never know what might happen, but the Dems in the Senate have generally treated me with some degree of respect (after all, I’m testifying as a volunteer, so I don’t have to be there and I’m not being paid to be there, and most members of Congress recognize that), but not Durbin.
We will revisit the distasteful Dick a few more times this week.
