Obama's U.S. Trade Rep. Nominee Pays His Back Taxes

Stop me if you've heard this one before . . . A prominent Democrat gets nominated to serve in the Obama administration and suddenly realizes he hasn't been paying all his taxes.
Ron Kirk, nominated as U.S. Trade Representative in the Obama administration, owes an estimated $10,000 in back taxes.
Amazing! If former President Bush had this much trouble filling appointed positions the media wing of the Democrat party would be braying non-stop about how it was proof of incompetence.

Is there any chance that this is just a clever ruse? Maybe he isn't really president. Could it be it's just a cover story to get Dems to pay their taxes? You know, just like when police put out that wanted criminals won tickets to the Super Bowl to get them to turn themselves in thinking they are picking up tickets. No? That's not it? Oh well, makes more sense than thinking he actually won the election.

The joke is getting pretty old now....makes you wonder how many big name Democrats actually pay their taxes.
