God I love Howard Dean!
How many different ways do I love Howard Dean? I dunno if I can list them all. But let me try starting with this quote:
Dean said in Wednesday’s speech that Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson is “going to beat the pants off Katherine Harris, who didn’t understand that it is ethically improper to be the chairman of a campaign and count the votes at the same time. This is not Russia and she is not Stalin.”
Now really, who can argue with that? Harris did act much in the same manner that Stalin would have concerning “elections.” Rigged election? Check. Make yourself the person in charge of said election so it’ll never be questioned? Check.
Of course, Harris’s camp whined about Dean’s statement:
In a statement Thursday, Harris’ campaign said Dean’s comments comparing her to a communist dictator responsible for millions of deaths “reflect a lack of understanding and basic decency.”
Which is the equivalent of saying, “MOMMY! Howie was mean to me!”
