When Dean was running for President the Deaniacs would all recite the same talking points... "He's not that far left" "Look at his fiscal policies" "He is fiscally conservative"... and so forth. Of course they weren't fooling anyone.
And now, the leader of the Democratic National Committee is endorsing a Socialist candidate for Senator...
"Breaking party lines, former Gov. Howard Dean said Monday he supports Rep. Bernard Sanders' bid for the U.S. Senate, saying the Independent makes a "strong candidate."
"A victory for Bernie Sanders is a win for Democrats," Dean said in a telephone interview Monday." (source)
Isn't it his job to make sure the Democrats win? Isn't that what he gets paid to do?
If conservatives call Democrats Socialists we get reprimanded (Ann Coulter even gets pies thrown at her), but it would seem that Howard Dean thinks the parties are so closely aligned that he can endorse one as the Chair of the DNC...and that it will translate as a win for Democrats... Hmmmmmm....
Aside from that Dean said that US House majority leader, Tom DeLay, ''ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence," referring to allegations of unethical conduct against the Republican leader." (source)
BUT a Vermont paper just reported on the man that Dean has endorsed:
"Rep. Bernard Sanders used campaign donations to pay his wife and stepdaughter more than $150,000 for campaign-related work since 2000, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission.
Jane O'Meara Sanders, his wife, received $91,020 between 2002 and 2004 for "consultation" and for negotiating the purchase of television and radio time-slots for Sanders' advertisements, according to records and interviews." (source)
Isn't this what DeLay is being accused of? What a shock. Not only does Dean embrace a Socialist agenda, but he's a hypocrite to boot. Actually, I'm kidding, that comes as no shock at all...
