Daschle a Hypocrite?The Times today has an article on that paragon of virtue, Tom Daschle, who was apparently dicsovered to have slipped into a spending bill a provision that would exempt his state of South Dakota from environmental regulations, for the purpose of allowing the Forest Service to make the forests safer from fire, while being safe from a lawsuit from the environmental groups that use lawsuits like I use toothpaste.
Isn't this just typical? Let the 49 other states burn, continue to receive all of that Sierra Club money, but buy some votes for his re-election. He got caught this time. That doesn't happen often, and no Senator deserves it more than little Tommy.
