Senator Durbin Said What?
On CNN this morning Senator Durbin told CNN’s Candy Crowley this morning that “toxic rhetoric” is a problem in the country.
I cannot find the video of the interview or the transcript, so it is possible that Senator Durbin prefaced his remarks today with an appropriate recognition of his enormous error of a few years ago and perhaps even a further apology for his contribution to the degradation of political argument.
Until much more is known about the killer it is extremely irresponsible to opine about motive or causation, and the president, the governor and the Speaker have quite rightly refused to attempt to score any points from the horror. Prayers for the victims and their families is the only decent response.
