And That Brings Us to Today
Tom Daschle had what's being called a meltdown on the Senate floor today. Here's a transcript, and here is the President's words that got Mr Daschle all hot and bothered.
This is not so much a response to Mr Bush, but a response to algore! It's about Democratic Presidential politics, and trying desperately to hold on to the Senate in November. It's also a response to multiple liberal pundits who are asking what the heck the Democratic stands for, and when will they start standing up for it. The latest is David Broder, Monday in the Washington Post. This follows on the heels of the devastating article a couple of weeks ago in The New Republic.

I wish I was an editorial cartoonist on days like today. The picture would be the HMS Titanic, with Joe Lieberman as lookout, screaming, "Iceberg Dead Ahead!" Algore as Captain Smith, screaming "Steer hard left!" and Tom Daschle as the helmsman turning the wheel as far left as it goes. This week, with algore and Daschle, we may well have seen the pacifist Democrats hitting the iceberg. Oh, and the name on the iceberg? Iraq.
