But the accuracy of Dean’s comment is not the point.
This is the point:
Think. Did you ever hear a single Republican apologize on behalf of these sociopaths for these and the countless other outrages they commit against Democratic American citizens every single day of the year? No. They attack the questioner instead. They change the subject. They toss another bomb.
(Okay, this photo is an over-the top parody, but I am REALLY FURIOUS.)
So Dean makes some provocative statements. Are the wingnuts frothing at the mouth? Yes. Do we care? No. They're always frothing at the mouth; what we do makes no difference one way or the other.
Are the pundits frowning and acting all serious, talking about danger and moderation and what wise Democrats ought to do? Yes. So - and here's a test, Democrats - do we run to the nearest camera and frown, act serious, apologize, denounce, distance, and equivocate?
No. Hello! Earth to Vichy Dems: the pundits are not your friends and do not have your interests at heart. You don't have to listen to them, okay? Why don't you try listening to Harry Reid instead? Also - NEWS BULLETIN - it's not worth selling out your party to get some face time on TV just because you're thinking of running for president. And another thing: when you do it you look weak, irrelevant, cowardly, and selfish. How about you speak to Dean in private if you have a beef with him, then get on TV and rip the worst president this country has ever had?
To see a Gonzales-loving, MBNA-representing Beltway hack like Biden race to capitulate makes me sick. Even worse is the self-righteous, Bush-kissing, Iraq-war-supporting toady Joe Lieberman.
Luckily for us, Dean isn't backing down.
