Hoy Story posts a bible verse in response to DNC Chair hopeful Howard Dean's comment that "I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for . . ."
No matter what the but after that is (and it's "but I admire their discipline and their organization"), it's the dumbest thing he's said yet. Why is it reasonable for top-rank liberals to say such things? You could easily substitute "Nazis" for "Republicans" without changing the context a bit, and I think that's exactly the point. That's what they see in the Bush administration: Nazi Germany. And no, I am not comforted by the understanding that such an attitude is an indication of either an incomplete education or outright insanity.
On one hand, I can't wait to see this guy in action. He should destroy the Dems in a month. On the other hand, this kind of rhetoric is not without consequences and is bound to make reasonable progress more, not less, difficult. We certainly don't need more delusion on the Left, and especially not from a leader of the party. Either Dean truly represents the Left or he doesn't, but either way he's a disastrous choice for DNC Chair. MacAuliffe was a stiff and a loser, but this guy's a blind drunk driver at the wheel of a leaky gas truck.
So here he comes, the ticking time bomb. Who will suffer from the explosion?
