Howard Dean and the Dipshit National Committee (DNC) are running ads implying that John McCain wants to keep troops in Iraq for 100 years while they keep dying. Of course, McCain said the complete opposite, but never leave it to liberals or the Downercrats to make shit up out of whole cloth.
However, while appearing on Fox News Sunday, Dean, who should be in a strait-jacket, went one better: he believes that any mention by Republicans of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his ties to Obama is race baiting.
Understand that now? Mention Obama's ties to a white-hating, America-hating anti-Semitic nutjob, and it is race baiting.
Transcript: Howard Dean on 'FOX News Sunday'
DEAN: Chris, the Republicans — for the last 30 years, the Republican book is to race bait and to use hate and divisiveness. In 2006, the American people said no to that, and I think they're going to say no to that in 2008.
It is true that the economy, the war and health care are more important to the American people. They are tired of the divisiveness of what the Republicans have done to them, and that's why the Republicans are in trouble, deep trouble.
WALLACE: Governor, are you suggesting...
DEAN: Eight more years of George Bush is not what we need.
WALLACE: Governor, are you suggesting that bringing up Jeremiah Wright is race baiting, and hate and divisive?
DEAN: Yeah, I am suggesting that kind of stuff. I think when you start bringing up candidates that have nothing to do with the issue — when you start bringing up things that have nothing to do with the candidate and nothing to do with the issues, that's race baiting, and that's exactly what it is, just like Willie Horton was race baiting so many years ago.
I think we're going to take a — we're going to turn the page on this stuff. I tell you, you know, there's a lot of difference between the Republicans and the Democrats on issues, but the biggest issue of all is we don't use this kind of stuff. We never have used this kind of stuff, and we're not going to start now.
America is more important than the Republican Party, and that's the lesson that the voters are about to teach the Republicans.
WALLACE: But, Governor, I've got to tell you, when I interviewed Barack Obama last week, he said he thought that the Reverend Wright issue was a legitimate political issue — his words.
DEAN: Well, he can say whatever he wants. I'm going to say whatever I want. I'm not getting into Reverend Wright. He's caused enough trouble for our country over the last several weeks.
What I am going to say is that I think America — the American people want a united country. For the first time in 30 years, they want us to stop hating each other. They want us to work together. And I think that's what the issue is. That's what our message is going to be.
And we're not going to get into all this stuff about divisive figures. We're just not going to do it.
Howard Dean: he defines the word "scumbag."
Message to Howie: You can call us race baiting bigots, but you are going to become quite educated in the hatred of Jeremiah Wright and his ties to Barack Obama over the next few months, and if you don't like it you can go fuck yourself.
