Look out! He's going after everyone now!

He's tired of being poo pood, poor wittle guy.

He's created his own new nickname.

Wouldn't some of you be just beaming with pride to have this dude as the top dog? LOL! NOT!
He and O'Neil would make a great ticketDougSloan

Two @ssholes the Democratic Party could be proud of!

I'm sorry, but Dean just comes off as a total jerk. Zero charisma. Not the slightest bit likeable. There are guys like this on both sides (he's about the equivalent of Pat Buchanan), and likeable guys on both sides. He's just not pleasant to listen to ever. If Democrats were smart, they'd never nominate him. They'd be better off with Gore again.

Don't you ever just get fed up with the drivel and need to vent? I just can't stand by and let all you Liberal mush heads enjoy your Bush bashing circle jerk too much, now can I?

That's why I occasionally lose my normal good humor and come down like a million-pound shyt-hammer on you cave-mentality feudalists!

Ya, I usually regret the occasionally smacking around, but I figure it's better than being an @sshole ALL the time.

Nothing that a good ride or couple of beers won't resolve, though.

Substitute Bush for Dean and the sentance is still true! Maybe that means he can win, after all Bush did.

LOL, Couldn't resist.

Sounds downright scary!

He has got to be absolutely embarrassed for himself after a day to sleep on this garbage!

... just took a little longer than normal.

Up until mid-Dec, I thought he was a shoo-in for the Dem nomination (and subsequent Bush landslide come November). The events & comments surrounding Dean since then have me thinking he will be derailed, if not in Iowa, shortly thereafter. (I wouldn't bet against Dick Gephardt just yet.)

Hating all-things-Bush as a movement will only get one so far. It was never going to be enough to get him over the top in the general election. Based on Dean's debate comments & propensity to get tongue-tied, he demonstrates an inability to think on his feet. Considering Bush more than held his own in debates against a supposed intellectual like Gore, he would chew Dean up & spit him out.

Politics certainly is a fun spectator sport!

Ah, the perils of popular "wisdom".

That's one take. On the other hand, many would say that Bush can't even hold his own when he is the only speaker on stage.

What's that you were saying about popular "wisdom"?

You know what I'm going to say next, czar ... only time will tell!

His public speaking troubles are not.

He's not Jesus, you know. It's okay to admit he is has a fault or two.

Of course he is.czardonic

It cuts the amount of time he is actually talking in half.
and he still won. what does that say about dems? (nm)bill105

Clowns that didn't get into the circus. Very fun.

I think you're right. I've always thought he was entirely unelectable which is partly why I'm silently hoping for him.

I think it's funny how the full bore extreme left here believes that a worthy opponent must be another leftist like themselves. I say, of course, you're right and hope they get their wishes for a candidate. :)

Now, back on Earth, in reality, where the pop is a bell curve, it's not too hard to figure out where the votes are.

We might as well stitch up victory hats now!
What idiot thinks Dean is a leftist?czardonic

Tell us who he or she is so we can point and laugh derisively.
please, do me this one favor,bill105

if you really want to laugh, go to drudge report and look at the picture of dean with his wife????????? now i know why he doesnt bring her out in public!! shes a MAN BABY!!!!
Only if you post a picture of your own wife. (nm)czardonic

Don't let the sad example of No_sprint deter you. Just because he hasn't be able to come to terms with his horrible past doesn't mean you can't whip your own demons. But first you have to admit you're powerless over inhalants. That's the first step.
You're making up things again, that MPD...No_sprint
