A New Kind of Democrat?

Tom Daschle, who had not blotted his copybook in past years sufficiently to alienate That Guy in the White House, has withdrawn his nomination to lead the Welfare Department because of income tax evasion. This, the Nyok Times reports, is the second nomination to be withdrawn today because of income tax evasion.

Is it possible that a new kind of Democrat is at long last aborning--one who concedes, however grudgingly and tentatively at first, that the tax laws apply to Democrats as well as Americans, and that the sacred Welfare State cannot flourish like the greenback tree, unless Democrats also piss their money away on it?
