Dean, the perfect

By now most of us know how Howard Dean insisted upon Osama bin Laden's due process and presumption of innocence, yet Tom Delay --who has yet to indicted for any wrong doing -- should go dirrectly to jail. Set aside the fact that house members who are convicted of ethical violations don't go to jail. What about Delay's due process, and presumption of innocence? Doesn't this double standard tell us something about Dean, and possibly the people who elected him to run the party?

Dem's who are supposed to have so much more nuance and sophistication should be embarrassed by the shallow-thinking Howard Dean, who's ready to give bin Laden the benefit of the doubt, but makes no allowances for Delay. Yes Republicans think Democrats are annoying, and wrong headed. Yes they say stupid things from time to time (for which they almost always apologize immediately). But Dean, who confronted by Russert on Meet the Press, doggedly defended his double standard has officially given up the game. The real threat to America, is not Islamofacism, but Republicans, who are evil, and whom Dean "hates."

It's not the calm President Bush who has divided this country, its the reactionary churlish Howard Dean clones in the Democratic party who insist on hyperventilating every time Bush mispronounces a word.

More Dean Wisdom

Dean Unfiltered

Speaking to the Massachusetts Democrat's convention over the weekend, DNC Chair Howard Dean said Tom DeLay, “ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence,” because of the ethical allegations against him.

Barney Frank, never one to shy away from criticizing DeLay, rebuked Dean’s comment on the convention floor, “That's just wrong. I think Howard Dean was out of line talking about DeLay. The man has not been indicted. I don't like him, I disagree with some of what he does, but I don't think you, in a political speech, talk about a man as a criminal or his jail sentence."
