Howard Dean says...

Osama had nothing to do with September 11th, 2001.

I said I wasn't sure, but I said I thought there probably were. But the thing that really bothered me the most, which the 9-11 Commission said also wasn't true, is the insinuation that the president continues to make to this day that Osama bin Laden had something to do with supporting terrorists that attacked the United States. That is false.


I wonder how well this guy would have fared against the President had Kerry not taken the nomination...

Pretty much.

He also says YEEEEAAAAAAGGGHHH!

(How am I the first one to make that joke, anyway.)

edit: I was going to make an even worse joke involving an ant and a shotgun in reply to the "how well would he have done in the presidential campaign" comment. But when I typed ant into google, one of the images was a gif of a lethargic looking ant in a hardhat operating a jackhammer. This kind of frightened me, so I backed away from that idea.

And this leads to the question:

How is this guy the Democratic Party chairman again?

And people WONDER why Bush is in the White House...

They kind of needed/wanted someone dynamic, who seemed to have a clear agenda. He fit the bill (if this is a good or bad thing, only time will tell.).

As with every major event in history, there are always those that deny it happened as reported. The most obvious example are Holocaust deniers.

I think it's safe to say that Howard Dean is the first, public citizen with some sort of power, to be a 9-11 Denier (as to how the attacks occurred).

EDIT: Now, I've read nothing, but perhaps he meant Saddam Hussein (at which point he's beating a dead horse).

EDIT 2: Seems I'm right. Mr. Bush isn't the only one who mixes them up:

DR. DEAN: I said I wasn't sure, but I said I thought there probably were. But the thing that really bothered me the most, which the 9-11 Commission said also wasn't true, is the insinuation that the president continues to make to this day that Osama bin Laden had something to do with supporting terrorists that attacked the United States. That is false. The 9-11 Commission, chaired by a Republican, said it was false. Is it wrong to send people to war without telling them the truth. And the truth was Osama bin Laden was a very bad person who was doing terrible things, but that Iraq was never a threat to the United States. That was the truth. It was underlined by the 9-11 Commission, headed, again, by a Republican, a well-respected group of people. I don't think you send American men and women to war, first of all without properly equipping them, and secondly without telling the truth to their parents about why it is we're asking them to make that sacrifice. So those are the kinds of things that I think are very bad about the Republicans.

The one good thing you could say about Howard Dean is that you could pretty much always count on him for a laugh.

He seems like one of those super-hyperactive guys that just gets on a roll and doesn't stop. He wants to convey a message but doesn't always think before he opens his ( lets face it) huge mouth.

Oh...if he meant Saddam but just got confused that's OK I suppose. Yay for taking one sentence out of context.

I actually liked Dean before. The scream showed the little guy had tons of enthusiasm. Too bad everyone tore him apart.

I like Dean. He seems like the kind of guy that might try and fight you though... Bad PR.





The point is, ladies and gentlemen, that I agree with Wienberg... people mess up all the time. Its just more funny when they're famous.
