THE NIGHT THEY DROVE OLE DIXIE DOWN:
Hasta La Vista (DANA MILBANK, 12/21/2007, Washington Post)
Tom Tancredo is an angry man.
We know this because he has proposed dropping bombs on Mecca. We know this because he sang "Dixie" at a South Carolina gathering full of Confederate flags and white supremacists. And we know this because he wants to expel 12 million people now living in the United States.
Now, the Republican congressman from Colorado has a new reason to be angry: The voters of Iowa, inexplicably, do not want him to be their president.
"I know I cannot win," he confessed at a lightly attended news conference in the Marriott hotel here, where a balky sound system -- made in China! -- marred the announcement that he was quitting the presidential race.
He should have hired a day laborer to make the announcement for him. Posted by Orrin Judd at December 21, 2007 11:22 AM
