So, Tim Daschle had to back out of his appointment because he knew the Senate wouldn’t vote him in because he can’t pay his taxes. Thus, he has set a great example. I’m not paying my damn taxes either. This, of course, is a problem for President Obama. Sorry, my brother. The honeymoon is over. From CNN:
Daschle, the former Democratic leader in the U.S. Senate, withdrew earlier Tuesday as news that he failed to pay some taxes in the past continued to stir opposition on Capitol Hill. “I think I screwed up,” Obama said in a wide-ranging interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “And I take responsibility for it and we’re going to make sure we fix it so it doesn’t happen again.”
Will Obama be all right? Of course. My brother pumps antifreeze in those veins and his bones are made from ice. He is chilly-chilly cool! Unlike some people we know. I’m looking at you, Christian Bale. First he tries to beat up his family after the Dark Knight.

The surgery is considered less invasive and could pave the way for an increase in organ donations, it added. “Removing the kidney through a natural opening should hasten the patient’s recovery and provide a better cosmetic result,” Montgomery said.
“A Natural Opening”. What? So you mean they had options? Prepare for this future headline: SURGEONS REMOVE HEALTHY KIDNEY THROUGH DONOR’S ASSHOLE.
