Go Howard Go!

Again, in the "Open Mouth, Insert Foot" world of Howard Dean, Chairman of the democratic national committee, states that women were better off under Saddam. Read it here.
Keep talking Howie, you are locking in a Republican majority for the next 20 years.

What Howard Dean was trying to say was women had more rights under Saddam than they shall under a more traditional Islamic regime which is to come. Women will be forced back as second class citizens.

Under Saddam, other faiths practiced openly. That will come to end as soon as Westerns leave the country.

Yep, three or four years from now, when we finally pull out, I give it about six months before they're burning the American flag in the presidential palace. Let's see what YOUR president says then. He'll just lie....again, just like he did when we got into this mess.

Sure, freedom to be kidnapped off the streets or from your own wedding by the sons of Saddam and violated nine ways to Sunday. What lovely freedom they must have enjoyed. And those mass graves? 300+ and counting holding over 500,000 bodies? At least half of them are women and children, so equality under Saddam was a lovely thing. Grow up Lefty.

Anonymous Dean Scream said...


(sorry SCC- couldja leave the link after the "snip" at least?! ;-) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

...On January 19, 2004, Dean's campaign suffered a blow when a last-minute surge by rivals John Kerry and John Edwards led to an embarrassing third-place defeat for Dean in the 2004 Iowa Democratic caucuses, representing the first votes cast in primary season.

Dean had been a strong contender for weeks in advance in that state, battling with Richard A. "Dick" Gephardt for first place in the polls. To the surprise of the Dean and Gephardt campaigns, Dean finished third in Iowa behind Kerry and John Edwards, with Gephardt finished fourth. Since Dean had spent months leading Iowa tracking polls, his third-place finish was widely considered a sign that the campaign was losing momentum, a self-fulfilling prophecy once that theme began to be reported in the press.

Most analysts blamed intense negative campaigning between Dean and Gephardt as the reason for their losses. Many Dean supporters questioned whether allegedly unfair media coverage played a role in the result. The Atlantic Monthly's Joshua Green reported that in early January, the Wesley Clark campaign had leaked information to the press showing Dean to be "unelectable." Though every campaign, including Dean's, sends negative information to the press about rival candidates, Green claims the media turned against both Clark and Dean. Other insiders attribute the loss to a staff and supporters inexperienced with the caucus process.

Dean attended a post-caucus rally for his volunteers in Iowa to deliver his concession speech, aimed at cheering up those in attendance. Forced to shout over the cheers of his enthusiastic audience, Dean didn't realize the crowd noise was being filtered out by his unidirectional microphone, leaving only his full-throated exhortations audible to the television viewers. To those at home, it sounded as if he was raising his voice out of sheer emotion. Recordings from within the crowd made it clear that Dean was shouting in order to be heard over the cheers of the crowd.[1]

Regardless, many in the television audience criticized the speech as loud, peculiar, and unpresidential. [2] In particular, this quote from the speech was aired repeatedly in the days following the caucus:

"Not only are we going to New Hampshire, Tom Harkin, we're going to South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota and New Mexico, and we're going to California and Texas and New York...And we're going to South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan. And then we're going to Washington, D.C., to take back the White House!


This final "yeeeaaaahhh" has become known in American political folklore as either "the Dean Scream" or the "I Have a Scream" speech (after I Have a Dream).

Dean conceded that the speech did not project the best image, jokingly referring to it as a "crazy, red-faced rant" on The Late Show with David Letterman. In an interview later that week with Diane Sawyer, he said he was "a little sheepish, ... but I'm not apologetic". [3]

Sawyer and many others in the national broadcast news media later expressed some regret about overplaying the story [4]. In fact, CNN issued an public apology and admitted in a statement that they indeed may have 'overplayed' the incident. The incessant replaying of the "Dean Scream" by the press became a debate on the topic of whether Dean was the victim of media bias. Such reports certainly fit with reports of "unelectablity", as shown by Green's Atlantic Monthly piece. The scream scene was shown an estimated 633 times by cable and broadcast news networks in just four days following the incident, a number that does not include talk shows and local news broadcasts. [5]

However, those who were in the actual audience that day insist that they were not aware of the infamous scream until they returned to their hotel rooms and saw it on TV. There were many thousands of people in the room that day, all screaming for all they were worth, making it hard to hear Dean, even with a microphone - this is very different from the media image of Dean screaming to an empty room.

The sound recording of the speech was put to music by Right Magazine for its "Dean Goes Nuts Remix", which derived its name from a Drudge Report headline, and this spawned dozens of copycats. [6] The scream has been used, discreetely, as a sort of 21st-century Wilhelm scream in at least two films, both in 2004: Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Team America: World Police, and in the Disney remake of The Alamo during a battle scene.

Venzeluan Court Finds Bush Guilty

Witnesses from dozens of countries, including Colombia, Vietnam and communist-led Cuba, argued their cases against the alleged "imperialist" foreign policies of the United States before the jury.

Thousands of young men and women from leftist groups participating in the world youth festival cheered when the judge on Sunday read the verdict ending the two-day trial: "Condemned, for crimes against humanity."

"We declare President George W. Bush in particular as guilty, of being directly responsible for the crimes," said Venezuelan Vice President Jose Vicente Rangel as he continued to read the verdict.

The mock trial was part of the festival, hosted by Venezuela and held under the slogan "Against Imperialism and War." Chavez, a self-promclaimed "revolutionary" who has become one of Latin America's most outspoken critics of US foreign policy, was the last witness called to the stand.

Bwahahahahaha. You're holding up Hugo Chavez as a paragon of what exactly? He is a communist who counts among his supporters Castro and Saddam. He even visited Saddam before the invasion and called on the UN to leave him alone. He has directed all of Venezuela's oil revenues into his own political parties coffers and uses it to bribe and influence other Cetral American communist movements like Ortega's Sandanistas. He constantly claims that the US is going to invade his country and supresses political dissent by intimidation, imprisonment and murder. If this is your shining example of virtue and good government, you aren't just goofy; you're downright dangerous.

Chavez threw out a government controlled by the ultra-rich who used oil money to live lavish lifestyles at the expense of the poor and starving.

When elected he used some oil money to help the poor which led to an overthrow of his government by the rich. Their reign was short-lived and the people restored him to power.

Republicans don't like him because he refuses to bow before President Bush and uses oil money to help government programs.

To Leftisthebest:

My friend you will burn in the fires of hell, for your sins against the great President Bush.
How dare you.

I will not allow you to be placed in a concentration camp, you will be off to the gallows immdetiately.

We are among you, we are training for the great day. Remember what your democrats did at Waco and Ruby Ridge.

You sir are a propogandist.

Who leads are military. Could a democrat operate a fighter jet or an air craft carrier. Would a democrat understand a missile defense program.

I was looking for you at the royal funeral for the jet magazine editor.

The expresident cheater along with jesse the pretender and your brother Farakahn were all at one location. The Reich missed the opportunity.

PS. Please return my magazine the
TRUTH AT LAST, the news paper that prints the truth your Jewish Media ignores.

See you soon, I have to polish my
gestapo boots.
