I've been on the road a lot lately and haven't had time to blog about much. But I had a revelation in the car yesterday while listening to Howard Dean's latest comments about Republicans. Dean sounds just like the little kid who goes out and repeats everything he hears the grown ups say while they are gossiping about each other. Then the adults either get angry or embarrassed at having their secret thoughts aired in public. The stuff that comes out of Dean's mouth (Republicans=rich=white=Christian=evil) sounds just like the kinds of things that Democrats will say to each other when they think no one else is listening. Or when they are talking to those that they think deserve no respect (like any non-white person who doesn't think the Democrats are their only viable political option). Dean doesn't seem to have learned yet that you don't repeat those kinds of things in public. It's interesting to watch the rest of the Democratic party squirm every time he opens his mouth.
