- “If Governor Dean were not being effective, they would not be going after him so strongly.“
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defending DNC Chairman Howard Dean moments after disassociating herself from his recent dimwittery.
The Hill reports that DNC fundraising in the first four months of 2005 lagged behind the Republican National Committee by a margin of $24 million. The Republicans raised $42.6 million to the Democrats’ $18.6 million. They also report that three top DNC fundraisers recently resigned, prompting concern in some Democratic circles that Dean’s fundraising operation is troubled. Townhall has a fictional campaign ad highlighting Dean’s effectiveness. It’s so good we can only hope it actually gets made.
If that’s Democrats idea of effective I’d hate to see what it takes to get labeled as ineffective.
Update: Interestingly Harper’s publisher John MacArthur says Dean’s problems as Chairman are that he’s doing the bidding of party leaders, “erstwhile Democratic reformer and truth talker, talking nonsense on behalf of a party leadership that hates reform and despises the truth.”
