He Did Come out in Favor of Tooth Decay and the Argentine Banking Crisis
Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle has apparently abandoned his political strategy of praising President Bush’s war strategy while slamming him at home. He has also, apparently, abandoned any further political ambitions. In this AP story, Daschle came out against Bush’s labeling of Iraq, Iran, and North Korea as an Axis of Evil.
With Bush’s war numbers in the stratosphere and the American public willing to pursue the War, Dashcle’s comments were about as politically inept as coming out against Santa Claus and non-Oval Office oral sex.
Daschle may be good at bringing home the bacon, but even so, how long will his Red State voters in South Dakota be willing to put up with him?
This could be an interesting show come November.
