Getting Worse Before Getting Better
A few observations on the meltdown of the Democratic Party in the last 12 months…
La Shawn Barber comments on the media silence on Howard Dean today on her blog:
Dean must love the taste of his own feet. I have no political experience to speak of, minor exposure to television and moderate exposure to public speaking, but I’m more polished than Dean. He seems to say things without thinking, which is senseless since he should be used to being in the public eye. (He was a governor, for crying out loud.) Right out of his mouth, one gaffe after another falls (my Yoda impression).
A few months ago he said to a group of black Democrats: “You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here.” *rim shot*
So two blacks walk into a bar one night, and one says to the other…
Some black Republicans called for his head, and I said, “Let him stay!” He’s only helping our cause.
Today Dean defended his “pretty much white, Christian” comments ,… pretty much. Trey Jackson has the video clip of “The Howard” here.
Frankly, I don’t see what the hysteria and fuss is about. After all, this “is” the Democratic Party of today. I appreciate his honesty.
