Dean Loses It
I've been pretty consistent in fragging candidates who went over the top negative, and this set of rants by Dean about does it for me in saying good riddance, if that's the kind of bad loser he's going to leave this campaign as:
Howard Dean assailed front-runner John Kerry on Wednesday for being part of "the corrupt political culture in Washington."I'm sorry-- Howard Dean is not progressive enough in his policies to claim to be some shining progressive alternative to Kerry. They're both moderate liberals; neither was a Kucinich or a Wellstone in their history of left stands.
"I'm just deeply disappointed that once again we may have to settle for the lesser of two evils."
Dean has every right to be pissed off about the Osama ads in Iowa-- I slashed Kerry at the time for his associations with it, and Kerry dually disowned them. But ranting about them at this point just is unattractive by Dean.
