Senator Durbin's desperate attempts to slither out of trouble have prompted some hilarious satire by bloggers far more talented than I am.
Doug TenNapel gives the good senator's bloviations a, well, literary context of sorts.
Scott Ott at Scrappleface has a satiric view of the matter that is worth reading (and will give you some grim chuckles).
Iowhawk, on the other hand, goes into the matter a little more deeply and leaves poor Senator Durbin in shreds. Do not miss his posts here and here.
