Screamin’ Dean’s Splinter Group
It’s completely obvious to everyone, as police check for truck bombs, that Howard Dean is the Kerry Campaign Attack Dog, right? Just checking.
The timing of the alert raised eyebrows among some Bush administration critics. Former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean questioned whether there was a political objective to the alert — a sentiment roundly dismissed by Bush administration officials.
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry sought to use the latest threat to point out shortcomings in the Bush administration’s war on terror. “We shouldn’t be limping along from one piece of information to the next,” Kerry told CNN. “We should be doing everything necessary to protect our country.”
Kerry “maintains his distance” and coolly disavows the wacky fringes of the Democratic Party (going so far as to sanitize his blog), while Screamin’ Dean stumps openly for the Barking Moonbat splinter group.
