Howard Dean says something right for a change

As an example of their consistent efforts to turn themselves into a minority party permanatly, Michigan Rep. John Conyers- the senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee- and other Democratic party members organized a forum to publicize and discuss the infamous Downing Street memo. Discussing this memo isn't what's going to make them a minority party though, it's the other stuff that was discussed there: Conyers' event occurred in a small Capitol meeting room, and an overflow crowd watched witnesses on television in a conference room at DNC headquarters. According to Dean, some material distributed within the DNC conference room implied that Israel was involved in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. One witness, former intelligence analyst Ray McGovern, told Conyers and other House Democrats that the war was part of an effort to allow the United States and Israel to "dominate that part of the world,". Now before all the looney conspiracy theorist arab readers who come here jump in joy for finding that the Democrats are on their side, well, don't jump the gun on that one: The DNC chairman Howard Dean ( I found that i can't use Howie D. cause that's a Backstreet Boy) said something right for a change and fiercly ( see also: angrily) condemned those statements and allegations on the DNC website: We disavow the anti-Semitic literature, and the Democratic National Committee stands in absolute disagreement with and condemns the allegations. [...] But anti-Semitism and bigotry are unacceptable and un-American, and they have no place in civil political discourse. As for any inferences that the United States went to war so Israel could 'dominate' the Middle East or that Israel was in any way behind the horrific September 11th attacks on America, let me say unequivocally that such statements are nothing but vile, anti-Semitic rhetoric. The inferences are destructive and counterproductive, and have taken away from the true purpose of the Judiciary Committee members' meeting. The true prupose of the meeting was-naturally- to take swipes at the republican party and Bush and not the Jews, which are - for some inexplicable reason- some of the biggest supporters and donors to the Democratic Party. If i was a conspiracy theorist myself,which i am not, i would say that it's probably because it was the republican Nixon who orderd the Cease-Fire before Egypt completly lost the Yom Kippur War, it was the republican Bush Sr. who threatend the use of sanctions against Israel if they didn't seriously commit to the Peace process, and it's the republican Bush Jr. who was the first american president in history to publically call for a two state soloution and giving the Palestinian people their own autonomous state. But if you get confused with those facts, rememebr : it's the Democrats who are for a fair peace in the middle-east, and it's the republicans who like to eat muslim/ arab/palestinian babies for breakfast to please their imperialist zionist overlords. Hmm.....

Nope, most Jews are Democrats because they're socially liberal and don't like the Christian right or rural people in general.

I love your witty commentary! It makes the truly absurd and ignorant stories entertaining. Otherwise, I wouldn't even be able to get through them.

I just read the story on Drudge and found it absurd that it was broadcast on C-Span. This is a subtle opportunity to build some credibility for those absurd fictions in weak minds. Thanks for relating the Dean remarks. It is like bizarro world to have him on the wise side, if for only a moment.

It may have been serious if it was actually a "forum to publicize and discuss" the Downing Street memo.

It was a freak'n MOCK impeachment. Something these assholes made up in their heads, and playacted for the cameras and their adoring fans.

These people have lost all touch with reality.

Absolutely disgusting.
