Over at Little Green Retards they're jumping all over Howard Dean's Meet the Press oops, where he switched Saddam's name for Bin Laden's when talking with Russert; who either didn't notice, or didn't even bother to correct it. Thanks for nothin' Tim.
Anyway the Little Green Retards are calling Dean the gift to republicans that keeps on giving... Blah, Blah, Blah.... And they make a point of noting that Dean mispoke twice.
So I'd like to take a moment to point out the other people who've made the very same switcheroo. People Like:
Donald Rumsfeld: Switched Saddam with Bin Laden twice 'In a speech to the National Press Club on the eve of the third anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks'
Bushie: "Of course we're after Iraq.. eh.. Saddam Hussein.. I mean bin Laden."
...and while I'm at it here is a never ending list of the stupid things bush has said.
I liked this one:
"I want to thank my friend, Sen. Bill Frist, for joining us today. … He married a Texas girl, I want you to know. (Laughter.) Karyn is with us. A West Texas girl, just like me."—Nashville, Tenn., May 27, 2004
and this one...
"God loves you, and I love you. And you can count on both of us as a powerful message that people who wonder about their future can hear."—Los Angeles, Calif., March 3, 2004 (Thanks to Tanny Bear.)
...but back to the point. Howard Dean energizes the DNC. Where they'd given up on so called red states, Howard Dean has marched right in, and fought for them.
Republicans can redistrict Texas all they want. In the next election, they're gonna have to fight for it, and thanks to Howard Dean, they're gonna have to fight for a lot of other states too.
They can say what they want about his 'howl' too, 'cause when all was said and done most Americans liked it.
The hypocrisy is that they attack Dean, a man known to have hooted and howled at a campaign rally, and then fight for the nomination of John Bolton, a man known to have attacked a woman, trapping her in her hotel room, where he continued to pound on her door while shouting treats at her.
...but let 'em say what they want, Howard Dean has the GOP on the ropes, and they know it.
