South Dakota Senator Lashes Out at 'Taliban Wing of Republican Party'
Advertisements [?]
<The special election to fill South Dakota's lone Congressional seat turned negative Sunday with fewer than 10 days to go before the June 1 polling date. At a Sioux Falls rally for Democrat Stephanie Herseth, Sen. Tim Johnson (D-SD) appeared alongside the candidate and Sen. Tom Daschle (D-SD) and touched off a firestorm with his remarks.

Johnson said, "When Stephanie Herseth fills this seat, we are going to have a rising star in the House of Representatives. And how sweet it's going to be on June 2 when the Taliban wing of the Republican Party finds out what's happened in South Dakota."

His characterization delighted the partisan crowd, but South Dakota Republicans are demanding an apology from Johnson.>
