Democrats like **** Durbin in Congress and others have been criticizing the Islamic terrorist prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba as some sort of Gulag where prisoners are mistreated and human rights have been violated. So Democrats and Republicans alike toured the facility over the weekend to see for themselves.

The verdict? The prisoners are being treated humanely and the place is quite luxurious, just as the administration has been telling us. Democrats are starting to eat crow. First up, California Democrat Ellen Tauscher, who said: "The Guantanamo we saw today is not the Guantanamo we heard about a few years ago." Even none other than Sheila Jackson-Lee, who has said the facility should close, had this to say: "What we've seen here is evidence that we've made progress.'' I guess that's about as much as you're going to get out of Ms. Lee.

Perhaps now that they've seen there's nothing amiss at the prison, the Democrats will move on from bashing the United States. Yeah .... right.
