A Clue That Howard Dean Is Doing a Good Job
The Good Doctor must be doing a good enough job of making the DNC an effective organization to worry the Usual Suspects. The AP is trying to undermine him by (a) reminding us of "the Scream"; (b) emphasizing that Dean was a "failed" candidate; (c) accusing Dean of having to steal ideas from the Republican Party; (d) insinuating that Dean caused the Democrats to be "behind" the GOP in messaging and organizing (when in fact he inherite the problem); and (e) alleging that unnamed [of course, unnamed] Democrats lack confidence in him.
Ron Fournier earned his turkee this week. It's gotta be hard work fitting that many smear-by-sneers into one "news" report.
When we have a bevy of progressive democrat town supervisors, school board members, mayors, city councilpersons, state reps and senators in place, it will be a lot easier to fill Congress with the like.
Patience is a virtue as rewarding as a new love in Spring. And Dean knows how to do this.
The rightards gained power slowly, one radio-station at a time. We can fight back this way, too.
Especially after Katrina showed us what the "You're On Your Own-ership Society" is doing to the country, Dean's message that we're all in this together is going to win a lot of people over.
