Howard Dean: Moderate

Sometimes, you have to wonder if the New York Times is on the same planet as the rest of us. Maybe they really hang out where: (cut to image of Mr. Spock) “our physical laws and reality do not apply, Captain Kirk.” Paul Krugman’s op-ed piece in today’s Times: “The Fighting Moderates” is definitely a visitation from the Twilight Zone.

Mr. Krugman assures us that the selection of Howard “Screamer” Dean as the Democratic National Committee’s chairman “doesn’t represent a turn to the left. Mr. Dean is squarely in the center of his party on issues like health care and national defense.” Nope, definitely no turn to the left here. The Screamer, you may recall, told us recently that “I hate Republicans and everything they stand for” and he is on record as having said the most “interesting theory”regarding Bush’s reasons for his alleged suppression of the 9/11 report [which was published] was that Bush “was warned ahead of time by the Saudis.”

So Dean’s the center of his party ? Thank God, you scared me for a minute, Krugman. At least you weren’t trying to sell us on the idea that the Screamer was at the center of anything other then his wackazoid party.
