Daschle is Out

This just in: Tom Daschle Withdraws Nomination for Secratary of Health and Human Services.

Apparently, the guy owes the IRS more than $130,000 in unpaid taxes. And he didn’t really withdraw voluntarily either: political pressure forced him to quit.

Now, my only question is this: Why is one potential cabinet member forced to resign for not paying taxes, but others are allowed in? Heck, the bloody Secretary of Treasury, the guy who runs the IRS, owes back taxes!

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

Do I detect a case of selective standards and ethics being applied here?
