We were saddened to see Tom Daschle withdraw his nomination on Tuesday to be President Obama's Health and Human Services Secretary. Many people have been making fun of a couple of President Obama’s Cabinet nominees because they failed to pay a small percentage of their income taxes. We here at 1 Hour Martinizing are above such folly.
We got a direct message on Twitter from a high ranking member of the Obama Administration. I can’t say his name, but it rhymes with Dom Himmanugel. He gave us the name of the new nominee for Health and Human Services Secretary. We were assured that he has a better track record with the IRS than Daschle. We wish Mr. Wesley Snipes the best of luck.
On the lighter side of the news, President Obama was on NBC again. He said he “screwed up” by nominating a couple of people to serve on his cabinet who forgot to pay their taxes. In a show of solidarity, NBC released a statement claiming that it too has screwed up before, and is sorry for the following;
