politics: they didn’t pay what?
While I’m sure that photo wasn’t taken specifically in response to the recent withdrawn nominees, it still looks like an apt reflection of how he must be feeling. At least, as a quirk of fate, Daschle’s withdrawal took place on February 3, the 96th anniversary of the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment. Sadly there was no School House Rock song about allowing the Government to collect taxes. Maybe if there had been, these recent nominees would have remembered to pay them.
I appreciate the “I screwed up” admission, but to say of these nominees that they “made a mistake” isn’t really reassuring to people who do and pay their taxes on time every year when they owe. The “Rock Star” status of this administration only goes so far.
