Dean Misspeaks #7,469

May 2005: Dean Comments on Senator Tom Delay:
"I think Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston, where he can serve his jail sentence down there," Dean told Massachusetts Democrats at their state convention.
Incredibly, in the next breath the top Democrat complained about "this ugly, nasty dialogue that is coming from the right wing of the American Republican Party." (source)

December 2003: Dean Comments on Osama Bin Laden:
"I've resisted pronouncing a sentence before guilt is found," Dean said in the interview. "I will have this old-fashioned notion that even with people like Osama, who is very likely to be found guilty, we should do our best not to, in positions of executive power, not to prejudge jury trials."
Dean added he is certain most Americans agree with that sentiment." (source)

So, the leader of the Democratic Party pronounces sentence on DeLay premature of one charge being levied, yet presumes Bin Laden's innocence after watching 2,752 die when the Towers fell...
