You know Howard Dean is such a caricature that even a straight reporting of a news story makes him look like the twit he is.
“The Iraqi prime minister is an anti-Semite,” the Democratic leader told a gathering of business leaders in Florida. “We don’t need to spend $200 and $300 and $500 billion bringing democracy to Iraq to turn it over to people who believe that Israel doesn’t have a right to defend itself and who refuse to condemn Hezbollah.”
Cynthia McKinney was unavalable for comment.
Fortunately the RNC was:
The Republican National Committee rejected Dean’s criticism of Al-Maliki, saying, “It is incredibly troubling that Howard Dean would seek to score cheap political points by attacking the democratically elected prime minister of Iraq.”
Short, succinct, to the point and dead on.
This is also beautiful:
On Capitol Hill, Sen. John Warner, R-Va., the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said: “I dismiss Howard Dean. Really, he’s a disappointment, even to Democrats. I don’t care to deal with that.”
Remember this is the chairman of the DNC, not the founder of MoveOn.org.
Let’s end this with a dose of ironic tonedeafness:
Dean also used the Florida appearance to criticize President Bush, calling him “the most divisive president probably in our history” as he complained that Republican policies of deceit and finger-pointing are tearing the country apart.
“He’s always talking about those people. It’s always somebody else’s fault. It’s the gays’ fault. It’s the immigrants’ fault. It’s the liberals’ fault. It’s the Democrats’ fault. It’s Hollywood people,” Dean said. “Americans are sick of that. Even if you win elections doing that, you drag down our country.”
Some time ago, my crazy friend Doug mated Howard Dean with Daffy Duck. Their offspring was … interesting to say the least.
Ladeees and Gentlemen, thanks to the miracle of You Tube, I present to you Howard Dean the Duck!
