Dashing The Hopes.

Can't tell if this is a little bit of buyers remorse or someone woke up and found some common sense or a case of a stopped clock being right twice a day. But when the New York Times is asking for Tom Daschle to step aside because of his tax issues, I need to check if the sky is still blue.

Mr. Daschle’s tax shortfall is particularly troubling because it comes on the heels of another nominee’s failure to pay taxes due. We were not pleased when the president’s Treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, admitted that he had failed to pay tens of thousands of dollars in federal self-employment taxes while working for the International Monetary Fund despite having signed paperwork acknowledging the obligation.

Geithner had his own issues with the IRS but sailed through the nomination because morons the US Senate thought he was the right man for the right job.

National Review has more on Daschle regarding what did he know and when did he know it.
