Dasched all to hell....
Sen. Allen rejoices at Daschle's defeat
Does anything compare to the defeat of John Kerry? Yes.
John Thune's ouster of Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle "was the Republicans' top priority," Bloomberg today quoted Sen. George Allen, R-Va., as saying.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said, "The nation spoke that we're on the right course, and we'll stay on that course and hopefully accelerate it."
Daschle's expulsion, the first ouster of a Senate boss since Republican Barry Goldwater of Arizona beat Senate Majority Leader Ernest McFarland in 1952, shows the people's rejection of Democrat "obstructionism," he noted.
The GOP's strengthened majority will help when it's time to confirm the first of President Bush's Supreme Court nominees, Frist said.
Daschle's "principal role as minority leader in the Senate has made him the target of many Republicans as the chief obstructer" of President Bush's agenda, noted William Richardson, chairman of the department of political science at the University of South Dakota.
Daschle wasn't able to fool South Dakota's voters with those ads showing him hugging President Bush.
