On another subject, it is

On another subject, it is good to see the Democrats’ environmental extremism finally coming back to haunt them. The Wall Street Journal reports on the political consequences of the summer’s western wildfires. The utterly corrupt Tom Daschle, by obtaining a stealth waiver for South Dakota that is being denied to all other states, cut the Democrats’ legs out from under them. (This shows, by the way, how desperate the Democrats are to hold on to their unelected Senate majority. Daschle’s object was to benefit fellow South Dakotan Tim Johnson, who is in the fight of his life against the more popular and more able John Thune.)
