Everything was going according to plan- Clark is proving to be a babbling idiot and keeps getting caught in lies, the Democrats are too stupid to actually nominate someone electable like Lieberman or Gephardt, and the rest of the field, other thanJohn Kerry, are distant memories. You are leading Howard- and it looks like you are well on your way to the nomination. If you would just please STFU for a few months, everything will be going precisely according to Karl Rove’s plan. As Dodd Harris notes:
Howard Dean has blown a fuse. There’s no other explanation for the fact that he “told a Tallahassee audience today that southerners have to quit basing their votes on ‘race, guns, God and gays.'” Dean, widely described as extremely intelligent, says he is trying to “reassemble a coalition of conservative southern voters like President Franklin Roosevelt had.”
Dean needs to just be quiet for a few more months until he has the nomination, and then he can say whatever he wants- in fact, I beg him to talk whenever and wherever.
