I personally think that maybe Chris Wallace shouldn’t have done this to Senator Dick Durbin. Executive summary of “this:” Wallace asked Durbin why it was that President Barack Obama in 2013 declared that our $16 trillion debt was “sustainable,” when Candidate Barack Obama in 2008 declared that $9 trillion debt was “unpatriotic;” and Durbin answered the question by declaring to Wallace that Durbin had had a dry night and did not need to go potty.
Note that I am trying to give the semantic gist of the conversation, here: as Doug Power notes, Durbin didn’t even try to answer the question.
Anyway, again: I’m almost upset at Chris Wallace for this smacking around of Durbin. It is unkind to remind those who are more than one standard deviation below average intelligence that they cannot in fact function in modern society without a full-time caretaker.

It is pretty ironic that in Pence’s endorsement that he proclaimed this was “a time to choose” and yet at a critical juncture for his nation and party, Mike Pence is reported to have come within a gnat’s whisker of voting “present.”
