Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Shooting off his mouth

Howard Dean is at it again but here in Florida this time. From the Sun-Sentinel

West Palm Beach -- Democrat leader Howard Dean called the Iraqi prime minister an "anti-Semite" during an address before party loyalists on Wednesday, drawing a swift rebuke from Republicans. The Democratic National Committee chairman also called Republican Senate candidate Katherine Harris a "crook" and compared her to Stalin.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who addressed a joint session of Congress Wednesday, came under fire from Democrats for recent comments on the conflict in Lebanon between Israel and the terrorist group Hezbollah. Al-Maliki hasn't condemned Hezbollah, but he criticized the "Israeli aggression."

"The president made a big deal about bringing the Iraqi prime minister to address Congress," said Dean, the former Vermont governor and 2004 presidential candidate. "The Iraqi prime minister is an anti-Semite. We don't need to spend $200, $300, $500 billion bringing democracy to Iraq to turn it over to people who believe Israel doesn't have a right to defend itself."


Dean also had a harsh assessment of Harris, a U.S. House member trying to unseat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.

"Thank God for Bill Nelson, because we'd have another crook in the United States Senate if it weren't for him. He is going to beat the pants off Katherine Harris," Dean said during his 20-minute address. "She doesn't understand that it's…improper to be chairman of a campaign and count the votes at the same time. This is not Russia and she is not Stalin."
As to the Iraqi PM, I don't know what he said. When Dean attacks someone, I'm inclined to take sides with those who come under fire from the Democratic Party Chairman. Dean just says too many outrageous things. Click here and here for examples.

As to Harris, I'm no fan of her. I've questioned her ethics too. Dean calls her Stalin. Forgive me Governor Dean I know Katherine Harris and she is no Joseph Stalin.

TFM having a Lloyd Bentsen moment. LOL, the world has gone nuts I'm defending the congressmwoman.

Now go away and leave Florida alone. We have enough homegrown knuckleheads here and we don't need them visiting us also.
