Daschle's Done

When the New York Times says a liberal is cooked, I think you get out of the way and let the bird outta the oven.

When President Obama nominated former Senator Tom Daschle to be his secretary of health and human services, it seemed to be a good choice. Mr. Daschle, as the co-author of a book on health care reform, knew a lot about one of the president’s signature issues. As a former Senate majority leader, he also knew a lot about guiding controversial bills through Congress, where he remains liked and respected by former colleagues.

Unfortunately, new facts have come to light — involving his failure to pay substantial taxes that were owed and his sizable income from health-related companies while he worked in the private sector — that call into question his suitability for the job. We believe that Mr. Daschle ought to step aside and let the president choose a less-blemished successor.

No comment from me needed (snicker, snicker). Ok, one comment: I worked for a company that was based in SD, and it was amazing how many decent, hard-working folks liked this moron. He came to our company's office once and I'm glad I was out of town. Ok, one last comment: in that picture above, he's laughing because he knows he hasn't paid his taxes and you have.

H/T The Corner

UPDATE: Yep, see ya later, non-tax-payer.
