Viva Howard

In his book, Moral Politics, George Lakoff lists out the categories of "strict father" conservative moral action. At the very top of those priorities is the duty to promote and defend the conservative moral system. The importance it gets has given birth to a class of conservative warriors - from Newt Gingrich to Rush Limbaugh to Karl Rove ad nauseum. Promoting and defending liberal values doesn't even make it into Lakoff's list of liberal "nurturant parent" priorities. This has got to change!

And maybe it is starting to. It's tough to see the raking over that centrist, corporate sell-outs inside the Beltway are giving our new party chairman. They seem to forget what it takes to win at politics, and they have forgotten the real needs of the people who voted them in. I feel thankful every day that our grass roots outworked the DLC and we have a party chairman strong and wise enough to stand up to the outrages our elected leaders have learned to take for granted. Viva Dean!

I couldn't have said it beter myself.

Gov. Dean says things that hurt Republicans' feelings. Republicans DO things that hurt Americans. I appreciate Dean saying what needs to be said.
