That Sheryl Gay Stolberg is such a kidder! Look at what she (together with Robert Pear) stuck into a straight news story at the lieberal NY Times this morning:
But already, Mr. Daschle is becoming the butt of Republican jokes, as was the case at the House Republican retreat this weekend. According to one person who was there, Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the party whip, had this to say after hearing the news about Mr. Daschle: 'It is easy for the other side to advocate for higher taxes because — you know what? — they don't pay them.'Funny guy, Cantor. But I guess it's only fair for the Republicans to get a crack at publishing at third hand the sort of stale, juvenile, hypocritical attack drivel that was all our rage in, for example, the Wall Street Journal over the past eight years.
[Da-boom ching.] Heh! Try the veal!
