Another Cry-baby Senator. Where are the men?

So today, Cry-Baby Durbin apologized to anyone who was offended by his recent comments comparing our brave soldiers guarding the murderers and terrorists at Gitmo to Nazis, Pol Pot, and Russians with their gulags.

Notice he didn't actually apologize for what he said, only that it might have offended.
"Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line," the Illinois Democrat said. "To them I extend my heartfelt apologies."

His voice quaking and tears welling in his eyes, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate also apologized to any soldiers who felt insulted by his remarks.
Apparently it was only a "a very poor choice of words." And the Nazis only did some minor experiments.
