Daschle Explores Possibility Of Getting Ass Kicked Again In 2008

This time, he's forming an exploratory committee to guage interest in becoming a national embarrassment in a presidential race.

Republicans across America cheered the news that we might again have Tom Daschle to kick around anymore.

Check out this unrelated story, attached to the above one.

Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a White House hopeful who has sought the political middle on abortion, on Wednesday criticized Republicans for trying to erode access to birth control for women.

AP apparently thinks that being 100% pro-abortion is the "political middle."

I'm sure it's the "political middle" in the AP newsrooms. But how about in the country they're supposed to be covering?

"There's a quiet war going on in America — against the most basic rights of Americans to make their own personal decisions about family planning," Clinton wrote in a mass e-mail from her re-election campaign.

Oh yeah, that's "seeking the political middle ground" if I've ever heard it. I feel like I'm positively choking on all the centrism and moderation.

The New York senator complained that the Bush administration and congressional Republicans are whittling away at contraception options, particularly for poor women who rely on government-funded programs.

In related news, the AP just referred to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as "seeking the political middle on the question of exterminating all Jews."
