From the AP:
Howard Dean Calls for End to Divisiveness
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Down with divisiveness was the message Wednesday delivered by Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean as he told a group of Florida business leaders that Republican policies of deceit and finger-pointing are tearing American apart.
So how does he plan on “ending the divisiveness”?
By being divisive, of course…
“The Iraqi prime minister is an anti-Semite”
Apparently, when Dean was calling the Iraqi PM an anti-Semite for not denouncing those that attack Israel, he conveniently forgot the time he campaigned while wearing a black and white kaffiyeh, a symbol of Palestinian resistance, made popular by Yassir Arafat.
…and then for good measure, in an attempt to end divisiveness, he made sure to toss some of this very divisiveness at our own President:
“[Bush is] the most divisive president probably in our history” as he complained that Republican policies of deceit and finger-pointing are tearing the country apart.
“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.”
…and in case they didn’t hear him putting an end to the divisiveness, let them hear some more:
Dean also attacked the president on national defense, health care, education and Social Security. “He is bankrupting the middle-class,'’ Dean said.
…and to make sure the divisiveness is once and for all brought to an end, compare a political opponent to a communist:
Howard Dean compares Katherine Harris to Stalin
Maybe it was one of those moments where he was really saying, “It’s time to end the divisiveness now! Oh, wait, I mean…. now! Oops, I meant…. now! No, really, this time I mean it….now!”
