Why Do Monsters Cry?

When the durbin hit the fan, it apologized in floods of tears. Same as Voinovich, the senator who wants to keep the UN safe for crooks and child molesters by blocking Bolton. It's because they are afraid of the consequences of their actions for their nasty little lives.

First Voinovich.

Thursday's outcome will hinge on whether senators take to heart the passionate plea of Ohio Republican George V. Voinovich, who was reduced to tears at the end of a nearly hourlong speech imploring his colleagues to vote against Bolton.

Now the durbin:

WASHINGTON - Under fire from Republicans and some fellow Democrats, Sen. Dick Durbin apologized Tuesday for comparing American interrogators at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp to Nazis and other historically infamous figures.

“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.

Folks with interrogation training will know that tears in a suspect show culpability and fear of consequences.

Here's a good example from the Palestinian cripple who used Israel's free treatment of her burns to try and blow up the hospital.

"My dream was to be a martyr. I believe in death," she began, explaining how she was recruited by the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a violent offshoot of Fatah, the main Palestinian movement which holds power in the Palestinian authority.

She became tearful and began to contradict herself. At one point she denied she wanted to carry out an attack.

"I didn't kill anyone,'' she wailed. "Do you think they will forgive me?''

All three of these moral cripples have lain awake worrying about consequences.

The durbin & Voinovich won't get re-elected. They'll lose their huge staffs. People will snub them at parties. Returning soldiers and their friends and families will disrespect them. They won't get sinecures on the boards of big corporations.

The girl won't get her hospital treatment & will serve time in an Israeli jail until they free her. Then her killer buddies will make her do it again, and kill her if she refuses.

As the Brits say, ironically, "it makes you want to weep".
