Now that Tom Daschle has had to fall on his sword for his inability to understand the tax laws (to put it as kindly as one can) two minor thoughts occur.
Firstly, he paid the back taxes in order to get the job: now that he’s not getting the job, will he demand the taxes back?
OK, so that won’t happen, however amusing the thought is. Secondly, how many other senior Democrats are there out there with such problems? We’ve had three so far by my count. How about we just keep nominating people, in their hundreds and their thousands, making sure that all of them do indeed pay all their lawfully owed taxes? Soon have that budget deficit thing solved, won’t we?
