The Dems Are Killing Themselves by Trashing Dean!
Advertisements [?]
Even if you don't support him, you have to agree that Dickie Dickwad, Holy Joe, Nancy Loser Pelosi, et al are being very, very, very stupid and short-sighted about Dean.

He may not get the nomination, but his campaign has energized a new generation of Democratic voters. By trashing Dean and his suporters, they are turning these people off. It's like the 1960's when the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War produced a new generation of Democrats. The Democrats must find a way of keeping these people in the party even if Dean doesn't get the nomination. They won't do it by trashing his supporters on a personal basis. Wake up--the Democratic Party needs a vibrant, and active future! Support who you want, but make sure you don't alienate this large base!
