Dean Blames Bush for Leftist Supremes' Assault on Property Rights

In a startling display of his total disconnect from conventional reality, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Howard Dean treated members of the College Democrats of America last Friday to some of his most rabid demagoguery to date. The students were educated in the bizarre alternate reality inhabited by Dr. Dean, in which President Bush is to blame for the Supreme Court's recent decision allowing private property to be seized so that new private owners can develop it.

"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," Dean bellowed.

Anyone who follows the news will be aware that Bush has yet to place a judge on the Supreme Court. Anyone who follows it closely will know that it was the court's left-wing contingent — Stevens, Souter, Ginsburg, and Breyer — who with the help of Kennedy passed the disturbingly unconstitutional ruling that eminent domain can be used to seize private property for commercial development. The court's three conservatives — Rehnquist, Scalia, and Thomas — all dissented, as did O'Connor.

Wiser Democrats have been trying to get the doctor to take his medication, or at least tone down his public outbursts, going so far as to denounce some of the outrageous insults he has directed at Republicans — to no avail, evidently, as Dean was in true form in front of his fellow adolescents at the CDA's annual convention.

Drawing the curtain on the era of moral integrity personified by the Clintons, Republicans have brought a "culture of corruption" to Washington, according to Dean.

"If we want it back, we'll have to buy it back," he growled, plainly spelling out the strategy of George Soros and leftists from the entertainment industry.

"We are Democrats because we have moral values," Dean brayed, milking the line for extra laughs by explaining that moral values entail balancing the budget and supporting a "strong public education system" — which some would interpret to mean pandering to teachers' unions at the expense of students' educations.

After whipping the cognitively challenged crowd into a frenzy with his divisive rhetoric by calling Republicans bigots, Dean shrieked over the applause, "I am sick of being divided!"

In support of his firm stand against divisiveness, he declared that Republicans only care about children before they are born, not afterward.

It's easy to imagine the speech running on until men in white jackets emerged from the crowd with oversized butterfly nets, frightening Dean away from the podium.

Hammering away at whatever remains of the Democratic Party's credibility.

Dean shrieked over the applause, "I am sick of being divided!"

Because to the left, America has only been "divided" since the left lost its monopoly on the government and the media. That Americans are being exposed to non-leftist ideas makes them furious. That Americans increasingly embrace a non-leftist view of the world drives them insane.

Weird Howard is the best thing to happen to America since Ronald Reagan.

Just keep letting him spew, folks. He can't make it any easier for us.

The general public is beginning to see these left-wing ideologues like Dean and it is having an effect on the public's general concenus toward Democrats. I see where KKK Byrd and Conrad are not polling well in thier home states for the 2006 Sentorial races. Hell, let him keep up his idiocy, he is driving good people from the Democrat Party. He is like Stumpy Clinton to a certain extent, pick your audience. The general public would laugh them out of town.

That Americans increasingly embrace a non-leftist view of the world drives them insane.......

Polls increasingly going down in approval for the current administration indicate otherwise. If anything, America is heading toward somewhere between the neocon and the far-left.

Guys like Dean on one side, and Santorum, on the other side, are by no means reaching the spirit of the people who can think for themselves. The people sucked in to these choads' ideals are the ones that allow party affiliation to make decisions for them, regardless of what "the enemy" party might have to say.

I think Dick Durbin takes logic classes from Howard...neither one of them seems to get it.

To even remotely connect the Honorable Sen. Santorum and the Grand Poobah Moonbat Doktor Dean is one of the funniest things I think I've read on the b'sphere all week.
Thanks for the side-splitting guffaws, Rob B.!

And keep 'em coming, Dean! We LOVE your... Deanness.

This ought to be proof for any rational doubters (which raises the question, are there any?) who might otherwise contend that Howard Dean is living in any other reality than that of his own. Moreover, its proof of his dishonesty--unless he genuinely believes (for one, that the SCOTUS is a "right-wing" court) it is a conservative principle to support the expansion of eminent domain, which would be rather unnerving as that would suggest such a level of ignorance is possible (then again, we're talking about the DNC Chair, here).

Dean only rises to the intellectual level and honesty of his constituency.
