7. What makes me mad about Dean...
whenever anything comes out about him...it's always justified...but his supporters....no one ever says....well let me check into this...cause I don't like it. I remember about Clark and the burning Flag amendment....many of Clark supporters became disenchanged with Clark...and he lost some support...

Meanwhile Dean had a similar flag stance (his is unstated however)but none of his supporters cared.

It seems like it doesn't matter what Dean does or says....he's always right...and that reminds me of the right.....they try to justify everything....even when they are not truly convinced.

So what makes me mad about Dean is that his supporters don't process information like other people......it's living to defend Dean time always.
