Bloated Self Importance Anyone?

Here is Dick Durbin on the potential late night Congressional session courtesy of Crooks & Liars:

One of the critics of this recently called it a stunt. A stunt! A stunt that we would stay in session. A stunt that we would have a sleepless night for Senators. I don’t think it’s a stunt. I think it reflects the reality of this war. How many sleepless night have our soldiers and their families spent?

Uh sir, to believe one sleepless night in the friendly confines of the Senate reflects the reality of what our soldiers and their families go through is just about the dumbest thing I've heard today. Congratulations!

And they have cots for their naps in the back room, so they don't all actually have to, you know, stay up all night. They just put in an hour or two and snooze between shifts.
