Dean has uttered in recent weeks that many Republicans have been quick to condemn and many Democrats have been just as quick to disassociate themselves from. Among other things, Dean has said that he hates "Republicans and everything they stand for," that many of them "have never made an honest living in the lives," that House Majority Leader Tom DeLay "ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence" and -- most recently -- that Republicans are "pretty much a white Christian party."
from the Post. I fail to see whats wrong with the last two - the last one is a statistically verifiable statement (see here) , the one before that hardly inappropriate given the scandals that have engulfed DeLay. But the first two are just plain ridiculous.
Now, I've heard some people say that the statements were taken out of context - but I for one am content to believe that a statement that the Post cites as a fact is actually a fact.
Back when Dean first snagged the DNC chair over the objections of every Democrat on the national stage, I tried to be hopeful. But now it seems clear that the longer Dean stays on, the more incoherent blatherings he will spout, and the more damage he will do to the party.
Is there any way to kick out a DNC chair?
