Tuscaloosa News: Dems Can't Distance Themselves from Party Chairman

Alabama Democrats may not be willing to take on Howard Dean, but the Tuscaloosa News is.
Alabama Republicans got an unexpected windfall this week as fund raising began for statewide elections next year.

Bidding to expand their hold on the courts, retain the governor’s chair and make substantial gains in the Legislature, the Republican fund-raisers got a boost right out of left field -- from National Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean.

His mouth running like a leaky faucet (to use a nice simile), Dean said that Republicans never made an honest living in their lives.

For good measure, he added that GOP House Majority Leader Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence.

This is the kind of talk that veteran football coaches call “fightin’ words." It’s polarizing and motivating for those at the receiving end.
Keep talking, Chairman Dean.
