Too long to go into here, but I have a liberal friend who had direct dealings with Daschle. Daschle is a despicable hardcore a-hole.

His role may have been defensive, but the manner in which he conducted himself was offensive.

When I first heard his whiny voice, I put on my best Zell Miller hat and said "Get out of my face!" With that, I made a run for the remote and returned to FOX. How disgustingly shameless and ineffective he is (and was), but, of course, Russert will spare no amount of effort to make him a regular on MTP. Uggghhhhh!

Well, don't worry, Tommy-boy. Your woman made millions peddling your power and influence. I seriously doubt you'll ever have worry about where your next meal is coming from.

""I don't think you should ever apologize for making your voice heard,"

Tommy,Tommy, you are, as usual, wrong! YOU should always apologize for opening your smarmy, whiny mouth. Go filch bucks lobbying your fellow fat cat Pols. Public Service my A$$.

"...and that kept him from pursuing the proactive agenda he envisioned when he first entered politics."

And what he envisioned was probably something like this:

"The noise of democracy is something we have to protect and celebrate, not try to demean and to negate."

Someone tell Mr. Used To Be we are celebrating, and that he simply wasn't invited to the party. ;)

Are you a troll, or worse, an unappeasable? Frist is great.
