Dean Loses It, Again

"I'm tired of the ayatollahs of the right wing," Dean said. "We're fighting for freedom in Iraq. We're going to fight for freedom in America."
Only a small taste of the latest from the Democrat's National Committee chairman. Here's the story.

The problem with Howard Dean is that the majority of what he says is empty rhetoric. Nothing is fact-based, nothing is researched. What makes up most of Dean's monologues is the usual rhetoric of the MoveOn.org left. Verbal attacks and claims based on speculation and zero concrete evidence.

I get the impression that Dean is just plain mad these days. He's mad that Republicans have majorities in the house and the senate. He's mad that the President is in office for his second term, which still has over three years left. He's mad that Republicans have now appointed two of their own to the SCOTUS. And mad that his rhetoric has done nothing to bolster the Democrat's base; it has instead splintered the Democratic party and done nothing to weaken the rock-solid Republican base.

So it's understandable why Howard Dean has spent most of his mic time recently just venting. Dean is a key member of the Democratic Party, and his inability to keep his head or have any real sense of objectivity or truth in the things he says should be a warning to those who support him.
