    Dick Durbin?

    Take a look at his the On The Issues page for him:

    He's more liberal (by that site) than the vast majority of sitting Democratic Senators.

    96% from Human Rights Campaign (LGBT)
    100% NARAL and Planned Parenthood
    93% ACLU
    NAACP 100%
    League of Women Voters Civil/Human Rights 100%
    League of Conservation Voters 91-100% over last three years.
    National Education Association=A
    AFL-CIO 100% (2010), 89% (2011)
    ACORN (defunct thanks to GOP) 100%
    SANE (defunct) 100%
    AU (separation of Church/State) 100%
    Citizens for Tax Justice 100% (progressive taxation)

    Competitive Enterprise Institute Tax Score 0%
    Christian Coalition 0%
    CATO 17%

    I literally can't find a score where he isn't on the liberal side by a fair margin.

    Primary-ing him is displaying more "party purity" than the Republicans did primary-ing Dick Luger. Durbin is more liberal compared to his party than Luger was conservative compared to his.

    This can't be serious.

    The plural of anecdote is not data.
