He Manages To Keep A Straight Face When He Says This

Untitled document

You have got to give him credit. Screamin' Howie Dean can pull off a statement like this without bursting out laughing. Great self control. When asked by AFP about Hugo Chavez's antics at the UN last week, Howie managed to get this answer out without choking:

"I think it was very unhelpful. I think Hugo Chavez is someone that is a negative force in the world," Dean told AFP when asked about Chavez's UN speech this month, in which he called Bush the "devil."

"Even though I have many disagreements with President Bush, I think it's best to discuss those disagreements respectfully rather than disrespectfully," said Dean, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

The mind boggles.

    Not really, it depends on your definition of “respect.”

    That, and the fact half of what Dr. Demento says contradicts the other half. It’s what passes for balance among today’s Lefties, and will intensify as the election approaches. It’s wise to lay in a good supply of antacid tablets,

    Normally I distain politicans who happen to be scions of obscenely wealthy families, on either side of the aisle but I make an exception in Howie’s case. He is obviously motivated by deep personal beliefs. He may be a different drummer but he’s not hurting anyone.

    The 9/11 hijackers were also motivated by “deep personal beliefs” as were Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot. It takes a lot more than an obsessive fixation on insane delusions to qualify as something other than a garden variety fanatic.

    Howard Dean is hurting anyone who thinks public debate shouldn’t be drowned out by people who can yell the loudest.
