Dean calls GOP 'a white Christian party'
Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean, unapologetic in the face of recent criticism that he has been too tough on his political opposition, said in San Francisco this week that Republicans are "a pretty monolithic party. They all behave the same. They all look the same. It's pretty much a white Christian party."
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Howard Dean is the Democrat that has helped Republicans most since Al Sharpton hit the scene. Who woulda thunk? For over a decade, it turns out I've been in a white Christian party! Hey, Oven! You're a white Christian. Is it cool with you if I stay in the GOP, or is it better if I take off and find somewhere where there are more folk like me? What a maroon!

Republicans, of course, are ecstatic over his public buffoonery.
"Where do I sign up on a committee to keep Howard Dean?" crowed GOP operative Jon Fleischmann.
Hmmm... Mr. Fleischmann, that's a pretty Jewish-sounding name. You sure you're in the right party?

Thanks for blowing my cover, Bean. I had them all thinking I was a sleestak.

You are definitely in the club. The force is strong with you.
 
Oven: Sorry 'bout that. Though it sounds like what Howard Dean means by "white Christian" is "sleestak".
 
I think that would make Howard Dean "Chaka."
"Chaka hate Republicans. Republicans mean."
 
He is just a loudmouth jerk.
 
makes me sad, since i liked his being a doc and all, a good fiscal conservative, and a sort-of environmentalist. he really needs to take politics 101. but you know what? the stuff that comes out of bush's mouth is several layers below this, but we've all given him a pass. "i see we've got the rich and the richer here tonight. I call you my base." GWB
I'll be rooting for mccain or obama in 2008.
 
There's a difference between bile and a joke.

But don't worry - I'm pretty sure he's decided not to run in 08.
 
Jack: I don't know if he's a jerk. He certainly might be. But he's definitely a loudmouth.

Dr. Charles: We have Frist. He's a doc! W frequently uses the wrong word or speaks poorly, but his heart and his ideas are good. The problem is, in his heart I'm sure Dean believes what he said. McCain isn't too popular in the Coffeehouse. Here is some of what we've written about him in the past. I don't think any of it's positive.
