The Democrats want to start another political boondoggle by playing off of Dick Cheney’s former position at Halliburton. I suppose it’s all part of minority politics. Having no vision, no platform, and no ideas of their own, Democrats seem to want to grasp at straws in order to make themselves relevant.
I can almost hear Tom Daschle now: “Budget crisis? War in Iraq? Those are Bush’s problems. My problem is that nobody wants to vote for me. Dig me up some dirt on Dick Cheney. Even better if it’s war-related. 2 birds, 1 stone, you get me?”
I’ll never forget the look on Daschle’s smarmy face as he tried to put a positive spin on the election-night results in 2002. It was beautiful!
