Howlin' Mad Howie Dean, Unhinged and Unmedicated
Sunday was not a good day for Howlin' Mad Howie "I Have A Scream" Dean. His first order of business was to appear on NBC's Meet the Press. Tim Russert and company have been trying to book Howie side by side with the RNC Chairman since Howie ascended to the DNC Chairmanship. They have been thus far unsuccessful, and now we know why.
Video of the two segments is here.
While Howie may talk a good game, he is - for lack of a better term (and I'm glad there isn't one) - a coward.
I don't use that term lightly, I know its weight and meaning.
Howie is unwilling (and intellectually unable in my opinion) to engage in a live debate with his counterpart. In short, the show (or at least the segment) has to be about Howie or he'll take his ball and go home.
Perhaps he's afraid Ken Mehlman might have fallen out of his chair in hysterical fits of uncontrollable laughter when, asked for comment regarding the Democratic party's treatment of GOP senate candidate Steele of Maryland, Howie declared:
I didn't hear Ken condemning the chairman of the Maryland party when he called me an anti-Semite.The only problem is, the GOP Chairman in Maryland never made such a statement.
Howie's office is, of course, unavailable for comment. Most likely they're trying to figure out why they're so far behind the fundraising curve.
Ain't market forces wonderful?
Here endeth the lesson.
I think that Mr.Dean can't hold his temper. He (and his handlers) are afraid of his reaction if the "action" got intense. He won't ever do too many head to heads.Post a Comment
