Daschle channels Steve Martin (updated)

Update: Breaking News, Tom Daschle withdraws his name from HHS consideration. Developing
more here, and here,
word is, Daschle won’t be the health care czar either.


Writing at NRO, Byron York poses the key unanswered question regarding the Daschle HHS nomination,

“… why it suddenly occurred to Daschle, in June 2008, that the car and driver he had been provided by a wealthy Democratic donor in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 might count as income and thus be subject to taxes — taxes which Daschle had not paid.”

Daschle’s answer? “I forgot!” [cue Steve Martin tape].

You can be a millionaire.. and never pay taxes!!
You say.. “Steve.. how can I be a millionaire.. and never pay taxes?” First.. get a million dollars. Now.. you say, “Steve.. what do I say to the tax man when he comes to my door and says, ‘You.. have never paid taxes’?” Two simple words. Two simple words in the English language: “I forgot!” How many times do we let ourselves get into terrible situations because we don’t say “I forgot”?
