Give Daschle The Boot

What the heck kind of Democrat is Tom Daschle? He supported the ban on so-called "partial birth" abortions -- the same ban that does not have a provision to save the life of the woman.

Now I learn he supports that nightmare energy bill that even the Heritage Foundation and Cato oppose. [via Daily Kos]

You know it's bad if those two are against it.

Daschle has to go.

a closet republican?

Why is the democratic party so heavily toploaded with weasels? I like the principles of the party, but it seems the people representing the party don't.

I think he's plain ol' smarmy.

Daschle was a good Democrat at one time - fought for the people, cared about saving America from the Fascist nightmare looming over us, worried about the environment.

That all changed when his office got anthraxed. He got the message: behave, or else this will happen again, maybe at your home.

Tom Daschle is the senior senator from South Dakota. The number one cash crop in SD is corn. Ethanol is made from corn. Of course he favors an energy bill that will put lots of money in constituents' pockets. What do you expect? Like every other senator, congessperson, every other elected official, Tom Daschle's first order of business is to get re-elected. That's what's wrong with politics in these United States. But that's also the way it is and probably always will be -- unless Tommy Franks is right and martial law is imposed after a major WMD attack somewhere within our borders.
