Dean Off His Meds Again

The inimitable Howard Dean let’s fly with this howler:

"I was recently asked about the difference between the Democratic and Republican parties," Dean said. "When it comes right down to it, the essential difference is that the Democrats fundamentally believe it is important to make sure that American Jews feel comfortable being American Jews."

Aussie uber-blogger Tim Blair comments that "This might be the most clueless and bizarre line in the history of US politics." My thought is that the Republic National Committee ought to buy TV time for Dean to freak freely in front of as many Americans as possible.

I can’t even think of anything contrarian to say about that. Can someone please translate that Dean- speak into English for me?

Probably something like this, "Jews (or other ethnic or religious or racial group), stick with the Democrats. Our tribal appeal will keep you in the party."

Oh, I don’t know about that, check out the chuckles here:

Here’s a favorite of mine, not included in the top 10 list, from the Kelo case:

“The president and his right-wing Supreme Court think it is ‘okay’ to have the government take your house if they feel like putting a hotel where your house is."

Apparently Dean didn’t know that it was the i>left wingers who voted for the eminent domain house taking.

Dean’s pretty crazy sometimes, but this is some of the best bathroom reading I’ve ever invested time in . . .

Ah, the malicious neocon plot thickens...

OK, now I’m starting to get it. The Democratic party should be composed of Jews and Confederate-flag waving rednecks. I wonder what Morris Dees thinks of that proposal.
