Tom Daschle, complete with Sally glasses, is currently getting unfairly blasted by the media.  The reason: Not paying his taxes.

Former Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle, D-South Dakota, said he is “deeply embarrassed and disappointed by the errors that required me to amend my tax returns,” in a letter dated Monday to the senior Democrat and Republican on the Senate Finance Committee.

We’re unclear what the big deal is.  Paying taxes is practically optional these days.  And seriously, it’s not like he was nominated for Treasury secretary.
