The Self Fisking Post – Howard Dean

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.

Quoth Dean:

“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

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!


  1. “…as he complained that Republican policies of deceit and finger-pointing are tearing the country apart.”

    referring to Howard “I can project as well as the best of ’em” Dean.

    Curiously, Mr. Dean refuses to sign anything using his middle name, but one rightly concludes that he’s thinking it whenever the gerbil in his noggin takes a jaunt in the spinning wheel.

  2. Okay, I’ll bite. What’s Howard Dean’s middle name – and by the way, thanks for that mental picture of the gerbil! I keep breaking out in uprovoked giggles! The people in my office are now, more than ever, convinced I a trifle “tetched”!

  3. Thanks for the update, Gordon. I only have time to read a couple of sites a day and I did not have her site bookmarked…

    Gayle, I thought his middle name was “Screech”…but his REAL middle name is even more dumb…

    It’s “Brush”. I am not making that up. Same as his pappy and grandpappy…

  4. RE: Billy
    It’s “Brush”. I am not making that up…

    Really? Who knew?

    At first, I heard it was Howard “a lot of Republicans have never made an honest living in their lives” Dean. Then I thought it was Howard “We’ve gotten rid of Saddam Hussein and I suppose that’s a good thing” Dean. Finally, I was convinced of the one mentioned above.

    Drat. I’m still getting it wrong. Sorry, Gayle, about misleading you.

    But the gerbil thing? That’s absolutely true. Remember the scream? That was the exercise wheel falling off kilter and crushing a neuron. It’s a fact. And an entire nation bore witness to the tragedy. Fortunately, no gerbils perished in the accident and they continue to drive this man to madness.

    Go gerbils!
