It is depressing...

....that the level of discourse is this low in DC. Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean responding to criticism from the vice president, said he doesn't "care if Dick Cheney likes my mother or not." Now you would think that cheney insulted his mother or something. Right? Nope! The vice president said in a recent interview that Dean was not the type of person to lead a political party and mentioned the chairman's mother. "I've never been able to understand his appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I've never met anybody who does. He's never won anything, as best I can tell," Cheney said in an interview on Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes." hmm, the response? "But we gotta be there and fight in order to do it. And believe me, we are going to fight back. I don't care if Dick Cheney likes my mother or not. We are going to fight back," Dean said to cheers and applause. "I think it's great that Dick Cheney went after me, to be honest. At least they notice there's a Democratic Party that's not going to put up with this stuff any more. Yeah dude. We are noticing something allright!

Dean is not very good at lying. McCulloff (can't remember his name or spell it) was far more talented in the art of bullshitting. Dean does not "spin" well.

The discourse has really gotten bad. But then, when you have people like Dr. Mean running the DNC that sort of thing just spreads.

The thing is, most of the country is watching this with their mouths open in shock.

People can be pretty rude on both coasts, but middle America is still a place civility is expected. Dr. Mean isn't doing the DNC any favors.

Look at what happened to Durbin when he finally figured out that 80% of the American public was outraged at his little rant in the senate. When even Mayor Daily (who is a democrat) of Chicago condemned him, he knew he was in deep serious.

Dean has no one on his staff or in the party attempting to do any damage control for him. I think Bush and Dean are the same, only in the respect that they both say what is on their mind at the time, before fully thinking it through.

With that said, I believe a lot of Bush's hiccups are censored by his administration before they make it to the media. Dean? Well, apparently, people from both sides consider him a raving lunatic (I'm not implying that they are working together) and want him to fail, so for now, they're giving him exactly what he wants: attention.
