29. did anybody read that article? it wasn't very complimentary
Edited on Mon Jun-13-05 03:55 PM by Gabi Hayes
WRT the Voting Rights Act reauthorization litmus test for the Repug party:

After Dean talked about this litmus test, I asked him about his support for Jackson's voting rights amendment, which I thought he said in a morning panel discussion he backed. I wanted to double-check.

Dean said, "I haven't made up my mind,'' an answer that confused me since I thought he had.

I figured he misunderstood my question since I could not imagine Dean would be undecided on this one. So I sought in a follow-up to clarify if he was committed to the amendment. Dean, I think, thought I was trying to trip him up.

"That kind of stuff has been going on all week. And I am not answering that question," Dean said.

Rep. Jackson wanted to be helpful. He said his proposed amendment "need not be a litmus test at this stage for how Republicans relate to anyone.''

Dean then said, "Congressman Jackson does not have to speak for me. But the truth is, you don't get to speak for me, either.

"My view is very clear. I support the amendment.''

then, the Cheney quotes

on balance I don't think it came out too positive for Dean.

WTF is up with that section I quoted, anyway? anybody care to tell me what the deal is with that?

and Dean should start hitting them back with some of the unbelievable egregious quotes out there from socalled Pug leaders like Falwell/Robertson/Helms/Lott/Thurmond, etc.

He could be better prepared, but I do enjoy the fact that he's saying more of the things that need to be said. It's incredible the way the media do their utmost to paint him in a negative light at all opportunities.
