Howard Dean Seldom Fails To Deliver

He delivers for Republicans, that is. Here is the latest Dean gem from the Sun Sentinel via The Florida Masochist.

"Thank God for Bill Nelson, because we'd have another crook in the United States Senate if it weren't for him. He is going to beat the pants off Katherine Harris," Dean said during his 20-minute address. "She doesn't understand that it's...improper to be chairman of a campaign and count the votes at the same time. This is not Russia and she is not Stalin."
Well, at least he said she was not actually Stalin. Some of those in his audience were probably shocked to hear that. The Florida Masochist has more from Dean on Harris and more.

Paul Adds Like herpes, Howard Dean is the gift that just keeps giving.

Dean Calls Iraqi PM an 'Anti-Semite'
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean on Wednesday called Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki an "anti-Semite" for failing to denounce Hezbollah for its attacks against Israel.

Al-Maliki has condemned Israel's offensive, prompting several Democrats to boycott his address to a joint meeting of Congress and others to criticize him.

Because Dean is such a good friend to Israel.

And proving irony is lost on the dumb... and the insane:

Howard Dean Calls for End to Divisiveness

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Down with divisiveness was the message Wednesday delivered by Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean as he told a group of Florida business leaders that Republican policies of deceit and finger-pointing are tearing American apart.

Dean called President Bush "the most divisive president probably in our history."

"He's always talking about those people. It's always somebody else's fault.

I don't know how much Rove is paying Dean, but it ain't enough.

Sorry to swipe your post L, it just cracked me up.

It's funny how some folks blame Harris for the debacle in 2000, but almost all of the counties that had voting issues were supervised by Democratic officials.

(I still don't like Harris, who seems to have reached and exceeded her level of competence long ago...)

I vote Dean best worst party chairman - ever!

Don't really care for Harris on eway or the other but his swipe at the 2000 election thing is classic. For one thing--it was her job.

The other thing is that I find it the height of hypocrisy since the main leader and shaker for the initial count and recounts was the Commissioner of Elections was a Democrat....and not just any Democrat....but non-other than Al Gore's Florida campaign manager. It was nearly miraculous how many votes Al was able to suddenly find when that guy was in charge.

Not to mention his allowing Rev. Jackson to buy votes with food from many homeless....something the MSM still refuses to check into.

Actually Algore's mafia comitted a whole host of felonies in Fl. and Harris was the only one honest enough to stop them, that is until the SCROTUS got hold of them. Even the liberal left wing SCROTUS was scared to support the criminal actions of Algore, so the followed the law for once. If left the Algore's mafia not one Military member serving overseas would have had a vote. They made several attempts to throw all of the votes out and suceeded in several counties that had no one to keep the dumorats honest.

What kind of political party asks a man like Dean to lead it?

Not a serious party, that's clear.

He's a joke. But a perfect reflection of the state of the Party.

Lorie Byrd:

One thing that angered me in the Florida recount was the example that Bill Sammon (I think) recounted. No pun intended. Anyway, there were some military absentee ballots that had come in. The rule said they had to be postmarked by a certain date. There were some that had no postmark at all due to the type military mail delivery system. Anyway, in addition to postmarks on the envelopes, the election clerk or whatever you call them, also stamped them with a dated "Received" stamp when they came in. I think on the actual ballots, but it could have been the envelopes.

There were some ballots that were dated received well before the date they had to be postmarked, but the envelope did not have any postmark on it. But they knew from the "received" stamp that the ballots had been received in time. Gore got them thrown out. That made me want to throw up. Can you imagine the outrage the media would have directed at Bush had he done something like that?

You really have to wonder i... (Below threshold)

You really have to wonder if Dean IS a plant for the Republican party. I mean, can someone be this stupid???? And it's not just that, but he is wasting all the money that is coming into the DNC. Makes you think.

BTW, Dean said "I hate Republicans and everything they stand for" and then later said that the GOP was made up of mostly white Christian males. So I conclude from that that Dean hates Christians (they're Republicans after all). And Christians also stand with Israel. So you could also conclude that Dean is anti-semitic.

Bottom line: I love Howard Dean because he is insuring a GOP hold on the Congress this fall (whether he means too or not).

Dean is a great representative to demonstrate how acerbic todays Democratic party has become, it's just sad that it has to come to that. Lori, I too was sickened by the attempt to throw out military ballots. Just as sickening was the early call for Gore in Fl that we seldom hear about (I'm sure that was an honest mistake on the part of the Unbiased media). I've read about statistical studies that demonstrate this cost Bush about 30,000 votes in the panhandle of FL. I think Bill Sammon addressed this in his book.

Dean represents the radical... (Below threshold)

Dean represents the radical left, which has gained a dominance in the Democratic Party which may bring about the end of the oldest political party in the world. They aren't a majority of Democrats or a majority of elected Democrats - at least, not YET - but they are a big majority of the activist base, both of volunteers and donors.

The left can't win on its own in Party caucuses yet, but they can and do scare the hell out of elected officials who sport the "D" behind their names. That intimidation factor, along with their strength in the trenches and the fundraisers, is apparently enough to stop anyone they oppose, too.

Dean is the symbol for "Today's Democratic Party." Always wrong, but never in doubt. Completely opposed to anything Bush does, but without a viable alternative of their own.

This, friends, is not the sign of a "party on the move," ready to assume leadership of any part of the government. It's the death-bellow of a dying dragon, full of the hideous stench of rapid putrefaction.

I did a complete analysis of Florida counties not long after the 2000 election (damned if I can find it now) and found that of the counties the democrats were challenging there were an equal number of counties whose votes were as close or closer, but in favor of Gore. The democrats weren't interested in recounting those counties. You can't go in and cherrypick, "I don't like this result, and this one and this one," and demand they be recounted to the exclusion of others which were equally close, just because they were in your favor. That's what they tried to do and that's what the courts put a stop to.

And let's not forget that Rep. harris was not charged with counting the votes -- her job was merely to add up the vote totals that came from the counties. The problems with ballots and counting were local problems -- in predominantly Democrat areas supervised by Democrat officials.

Harris threw thousands of legal voters off the rolls in the 2000 election.
The fact she hasn't done time for usurping citizens legal right to vote speaks volumes.

Dean is a centrist you idiots.
Go look at his record in VT.

The fact she hasn't done time for usurping citizens legal right to vote speaks volumes.

Yes -- it means she acted entirely within the law.

Dean is a centrist you idiots.
Go look at his record in VT.

Dean is a lunatic you moron. Go look at the things he's been saying since he decided to run for president in 2004. And he hasn't backed off on any of it since then either.

I stand corrected about Dean.

My favorite idiot statement was when he had the temerity to say that arresting Saddam wouldn't solve the problems in Iraq or make Americans safer.

He was laughed and howled at by the likes of Lieberman, et al.

Can you imagine how crazy one has to be to say something so...what's the word...oh, yeah...correct.

I'm not a Democrat, but I like Dean because he provides me with such entertainment. He says some outrageous thing and you guys get all upset and/or giddy because you think he's going to bring the Democrats down, despite the fact that he's just the party chair and no normal people (not political freaks like us) pay any attention to him whatsoever. All very amusing.

With Dean at the helm, contributions to the Democrats have gone way down. Yeah, I'm amused, too.
