Howard Dean, Gaffe Machine

The DNC Chair has been having troublesome episodes of ... rhetorical excess? I would say "has lately been having" except, if he's putting his foot in his mouth, what else is new?

However, in past days the good doctor has been turning out gems at a rate that must be making the De Beers people jealous.


On taking time during the work day to wait in poll lines:

"Well, Republicans, I guess, can do that, because a lot of them have never made an honest living in their lives."

On Republican Congressman Tom Delay:

"I think Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston, where he can serve his jail sentence down there."

On the composition of the GOP:

"The Republicans are not very friendly to different kinds of people ... a pretty monolithic party. They all behave the same. They all look the same. It's pretty much a white Christian party."

What is super-funny about that last comment is that Chairman Dean's GOP counterpart - - the chairman of the Republican National Committee - happens to be a Jew.

What can I say? I would not be surprised if I Googled and found reports that on the day Dr. Dean was made DNC chair, Karl Rove was seen jumping up and down shouting "Christmas the whole year round! Christmas the whole year round!"
