This week Howard Dean called for an end to the divisiveness that has tainted our political process.

Dean called President Bush "the most divisive president probably in our history."

"He's always talking about those people. It's always somebody else's fault. It's the gays' fault. It's the immigrants' fault. It's the liberals' fault. It's the Democrats' fault. It's Hollywood people," Dean said. "Americans are sick of that. Even if you win elections doing that, you drag down our country."

He then proceeded to compare Katherine Harris to Stalin.

This guy is unbelievable.

Dean is the worst politician in a century and even he must know that there is almost no one on earth who has had more nasty things to say about the president and the Republican party than himself.

But he's party chair. Just goes to show you how they like to play the game.

I'm surprised that he hasn't come right out and thrown his support to Ned Lamont, who is the new darling of the far left and is trying to nab the Democratic senate nomination in Connecticut from former VP candidate Joe Lieberman.

Lamont is strictly an anti-war candidate, who like Dean did for a couple of months in the '04 primary season before everyone realized that he was a head case, is leading the Democratic primary field.

Like their elevation of Dean to Party Chair, a Lamont victory should confirm to all Americans what so many of us already know.

The Democrats are the party of division.

They are about to take away the nomination of a senator who is respected by Republicans and Democrats alike. A man whose bipartisan credentials are second perhaps only to John McCain. A man who, had a few more votes gone Al Gore's way in Florida, may be preparing to be frontrunner in a presidential contest two years from now, and they are about to eat him alive simply because he has not towed the dishonest Democratic party line on George W. Bush and the war in Iraq.

As the Dem's prepare to eat their own, they should be wary of what Dean says and does. Every time he speaks he gives the nation a terrific view of the Far-Left smear machine of which Dean is one of the primary operators.

For Dean to call the GOP and the president divisive is incredibly hypocritical. To say that President Bush is always talking about gays, immigrants, liberals and Hollywood is just a bold-faced lie.

When Bush speaks, in case Dean hasn’t noticed, it's usually on the topic of terrorism. If Dean and his friends can convince the American people that they have some understanding as to the significance of that threat. If he and his party can prove to someone that they care more about defending the country than they do about trying to impeach the president. If they can come up with some semblance of a plan to fight this vicious enemy, whom their impaired vision sees as being far less dangerous than the Commander in Chief.

If they can do all of these things then maybe, just maybe they have a shot at taking back congress.

Will they be willing and able to do these things? I highly doubt it. At least not with Howard Dean at the helm.

Maybe Bush usually speaks about terrorism because it's the only leg he has left to stand on?

You're right, Dean is way off base. THe proper metaphore for Katherine Harris isn't Stalin, it's the scary clown from Steven King's IT.

Why did I just KNOW this would be your next topic?

I'm surprised you left out the bit where Dean called the Prime Minister of Iraq an Anti-Semite (a statement that, according to the doctrines of as-Maliki's faith, is technically true). That was tasty.

Sigh. Oh, Howard Dean. You say so much and give so many dumb sound bites for Republicans to spin over and over and over and over and over again as they turn to America and say "Is THIS what you want?!"

Katherine Harris IS an idiot, though.

"The worst politician in a century?" though. I can think of plenty who are far worse.

And still - I now call Shinanigans. It's kinda hypocritical to accuse Democrats as being smear tactic fanatics. I mean - are you implying that the Republican party is all integrity, hugs, and moral compasses? They're ALL divisive, my friend. That's what two-party PARTISAN politics is all about - dividing. Divide and conquer is the game these guys play.

I'vre said it once and I'll say it again. When it comes to smear tactics both parties are guilty, but the Democrats and their allies on the left are far worse than their opponants and detractors.

Katherine Harris? You know she showed so much promise as a Congreswoman and she was great in interviews and debates. She even got he make-up problem fixed up.

But her current campaign has been one of the worst that I have ever seen. She should have given the Senate run a few more years. She may have been able to win
