A Matter of Pressing Importance

Sen. Dick Durbin sure does make the most of his time, doesn't he? He's been griping a lot lately, but at least he's coming up with solutions for all the things that are bugging him.

What's on Dick's mind? Well, we've got those poor prisoners in Guantanamo. And, the war in Iraq isn't going so smoothly. And, well, the president's judicial nominees just don't seem to cut it.
