Love fest

Did you see the kissy-kissy "news feature" PBS' "Newshour" ran on Friday. It seems poor little Tom Daschle is being attacked by all these terrible outsiders who run negative ads even when he's not up for re-election in this cycle.

So what? Why is this news? Ads get dumped on the airwaves by liberal groups against conservatives year round, election or no election, and that never warrants a peep out of Jim Lehrer and co. - not to mention the rest of the liberal media.

Another point: The new "campaign finance reform" law will ban most of these ads during the election cycle! I guess Daschle is getting exactly what he voted for - so why is he complaining?
