- Dean: "All we ask is that we not turn into a country like Iran where the President can do anything he wants."
Wow. He sounds just like lefty and shady! Anyone remember the last time fundamentalist christians shut down newspapers for publishing cartoons? Or stoned women to showing a bit of ankle? Or hung a few gentlemen for playing "Brokeback Mountain" with one another? We didn't think so. Or how about this one:
- Dean: "This is a Republican scandal."
Then this story finally hits the mainstream media that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid wrote 4 letters on behalf of Indian gaming interests and accepted $68,000. Does this absolve any republicans who took money illegally and improperly? No. If they can prove it, jail them all. Washington could do with a bit of a shakeup. But it makes the entire democratic party look like a bunch of hypocritical morons, especially as there are going to be even more revelations of democrats taking money from Abramoff's clients, not just republicans. Of course the republicans may have gotten more money - THEY'RE IN POWER! It makes sense to give money to the people who can help you. But claiming that Abramoff didn't give democrats money but directed his clients to do so is like arguing over the meaning of the word "is." The people will see through the semantics.
