She's handing the reins over to her young protégé and fellow Tom Daschle flack, Dan Pfeiffer. Dunn never planned to... Read More
President Obama with Anita Dunn, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, and Robert Gibbs (via White House Flickr stream) Earlier this week, I spotlighted White House interim communications director and chief Fox-basher Anita Dunn's career-long commitment to flacking for one of the Beltway's most entrenched and crooked creatures, Tom Daschle.

"Resource."
(Limited edition Culture of Corruption trading card sets are now available! Get your Dirty Dozen pack here thanks to Tennyson Hayes) I reported last month that failed HHS nominee Tom Daschle "may be out of the spotlight since his Health and Human Services cabinet nomination fiasco.

Several other reporters questioned the Team Obama talking point that... Read More

Cue Tammy Wynette. President Obama is standing by his man, Tom Daschle. And why not? The Senate Republicans aren't going to demand that he throw one of their dear old chums under the bus over a silly little "glitch." Senatorial privilege has its perks. (link)
Before we get to tax cheat Tom Daschle, let's recall the names of the Bend Over Republicans who pooh-poohed Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's tax troubles and accused critics of "thinking in small political terms." On the Senate Finance Committee, B.O. Republicans Mike Crapo, Orrin Hatch, John Cornyn, Olympia Snowe and John Ensign all determined that... Read More
