Right Wing Nut House



Filed under: Moonbats — Rick Moran @ 11:32 am

“A victory for Bernie Sanders is a win for Democrats.”

“I think Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston, where he can serve his jail sentence down there.”

Mr. Dean last month did an impression of Mr. Limbaugh for a gathering of Democrats in Minnesota that included the sound of someone snorting cocaine. Mr. Limbaugh became addicted to the painkiller OxyContin while dealing with years of chronic back pain, but entered a rehabilitation center last year and says he is now drug-free.

“I think our values are more consistent with Montana values than Republican values are.”

While discussing the hardship of working all day and then standing in line for eight hours to vote, Dean had said, “Well, Republicans, I guess, can do that because a lot of them have never made an honest living in their lives.”

“I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for.”

“You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here.”

Republicans “are mean. They are not nice people.”

Anklebiting Pundits, who first recommended Dean for Chairman of the DNC on November 10, 2004, believes him a “gift from God.”

Powerline calls him the “Gift that Keeps on Giving.”

One would think that a few more months of Howard Dean’s Traveling Train Wreck and some Democrats will start calling him a Karl Rove plant. Not that Democrats have a corner on stupidity. The Republicans have had bad chairmen in the past. Every time I saw Haley Barbour on national T.V. I wanted to turn the channel. All that was missing from his mug was the big cigar sticking out between clenched teeth so much he reminded me of the quintessential pol.

Thankfully, the Republicans wised up and have had two chairmen in a row who can win elections and raise money - a success by any yardstick. One of them, former chairman Ed Gillespie has been amused of late with Mr. Dean’s rants saying “Watching a Howard Dean speech is a little like people who go to a NASCAR race to see a crash.”

Except NASCAR racing is much more colorful and the cars are smarter than Dean is.

And current chairman Ken Mehlman has been much to busy stealing Democratic lawmakers and voters right from under the nose that Dean looks down Republicans at to pay much attention to his counterpart’s foibles. That said, I imagine ole’ Ken is chuckling quite a bit lately.

But the question I had and a question I’m sure others not closely connected with the (alternate) Reality Based Community has is what does the party think of its ranting moonbat chairman?

Dean wowed the faithful in ‘04 with his Web-based fund-raising magic. But major business donors still count, and in his new role as party honcho, the feisty doctor seems to be struggling to connect. After achieving money parity with the GOP in 2004, Democrats have fallen far behind. According to the Federal Election Commission, the DNC raised $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2005, vs. the Republican National Committee’s $32.3 million. Dean drew about 20,000 new donors, while his rivals picked up 68,200. The bottom line: Republicans have $26.2 million in the bank vs. $7.2 million for the Dems.

Recent evidence of big-donor discomfort: A DNC event scheduled for May 25 at Manhattan’s cavernous Jacob K. Javits Convention Center was scaled back to a smaller venue at the Essex House hotel. Bridget Siegel, the DNC’s New York finance chair, says the event was moved because the new room “just worked better.”

So it appears Dr. D’s act wears pretty thin when it comes to Democratic party moneybags who usually contribute to the party. This doesn’t stop gazillionares like Soros et. al. from filling the coffers of Moveon and Americans Coming Together (ACT). In fact, they, along with the rest of the base believes Howie is just the man to lead the Democrats to victory.

Witness the response at Moonbat Central, the Democratic Underground, to their beloved Chairman’s most recent remarks about Republicans being “pretty much a white, Christian party.”:

For me, when I hear the reference that Chairman Dean has made about the republican image it’s the KKK I see. D ; )

Yep. Kross-burning KKKristians. Same rhetoric, slightly different clothing.

Good for him! I’d just add, the GOP is the party of cold, inhuman corporations who know how to exploit White Xtians and WX wannabe’s.

I love Howard - and these remarks. Go Howard!

Dean speaks the truth. It’s time the public hears it, even if it is painful.

Screw this “attracting moderates” bullshit already, he is speaking the truth even though it hurts.

But that’s not true- many of them are closeted homosexuals

And so on…

You don’t have to be Mr. Wizard to predict that if Howie the Hero can’t keep his mouth from running too far away from reality the Republicans are going to have a field day highlighting these little bon mots not to mention burying the Democrats when it comes to raising money.

Poor, clueless, and embarrassed. Doesn’t sound like an election winning strategy to me.


Jeff Goldstein is a very funny fellow:

Asked to comment on Dean’s characterization of Republicans as a white Christian monolith, Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) expressed disappointment with the former Vermont Governor: “He says that like being white and Christian is a bad thing,” the Senator told a small gathering of reporters. Byrd was then quickly ushered away by several aides after he pressed a quarter into the palm of freshman Senator Barack Obama and demanded the Illinois Democrat “be a good boy and go fetch Mister Bobby a nice cold sodee-pop.”


  1. Listening to Rush’s first hour, a liberal called in and, as usual, went to the head of the call-line. What he had to say was that he wished to thank Rush for truly understanding Dean and liberals because what Dean has been saying, regarding the rich, the Christians, the whites, is exactly how they DO feel about Republicans. And only Rush understands that. So why would the liberals be unsatisfied with Dean, he said.

    Now I don’t know if this caller thinks that the majority of demoCRAPS are liberal, so Deans rant is truly fine with them. I suspect that the demo’s party is not filled with ranting lunatic liberals, but we won’t tell the caller!

  2. Your analysis is spot on. The question is will those ordinary dems become so disenchanted with Dean that they stay home on election day?

    We can only hope…

  3. I feel that with all this time left before the ‘08 election and this fool stays in position, many will not vote dem. Many more will vote Rep. for the first time in their lives. So pollers, go ahead and poll your favorite peoples, they’ll tell you that they will vote dem but, in truth, will not!

    This behavior by Dean is sparking more interest in the brain-dead community. (NO LETTERS PLEASE!) More and more, people are taking a good look at politics. That should scare the s**t out of dems, and is truly welcomed by Reps.

    One must wonder why the dems really thought that they had the election in the bag, and you know that they did. Why else be so harshly disappointed and DUMBfounded, Kerry and the PRESS included? Pollsters were rigging the polls so the FOOLS who need to feel that they are on the winning side and this justifies their choice, even though they had grave doubts, will feel more comfortable with their vote. Noe throw in this filibuster nonsense and they, the dems., have played a losing hand.

  4. All Dean is doing is raising cash. His Grand Old White Peoples’ Party bashing excites the liberal base, and the cash is a-rolling in because of it. That it incenses the hyper-sensitive lunatic right only increases the appeal.

    Here’s something interesting. Article: “For the 1st time since 9/11, more Americans trust Dems w/ nation’s problems.” Some horrible Bush numbers in there. The Great Terrorism Fighter has now become little more than an out of touch extremist in the eyes of a majority of Americans. Kind of like Superhawk if you think about it.


    No wonder you fellas all a-whine about Dean. The big issues facing the Lame Duck are far too painful for you guys to contemplate.

  6. Furtive Glances
    Sneaking a look at other prominent stories that I’m just too darn tired to discuss. Kevin Aylward notes that there is more than one definition to the word ‘fixed’, especially if you are British. Ankle Biting Pundits autopsies a now

  7. I hope Dean stays at the head of the DNC and continues to spout off — he’s making us crazy red-staters not look so crazy.

    But - I also think it’s an act. I told the 1SG tonight I think he’s doing it on purpose to make Hillary look more moderate.

  8. Whining abou Dean? Whatsamatta can’t tell the difference between laughing and whining?

    And that poll you’re clinging to like a drowning rat holding on to a piece of driftwood is so weighted in favor of the dems it needs to go to over eaters anon.

    And if all Dean is doing is “raising cash” how come he’s doing such a piss poor job of it with dem moneybags and dem politicians running away from him as fast as possible.

    Typical dem - can’t see a disaster happening until its too late.

  9. I’m inclined to agree with Jo’s last bit there, except I don’t think it’s an act. It’s more like the Harkonnen situation in Dune, where the Baron puts up Rabon “Beast” Dean (who is merely unleashed to do what comes natural to him,) to make the serfs more receptive to Feyd “Saviour” Hillary.

    Comment by Sue Dohnim — 6/9/2005 @ 8:34 am

  10. That’d be a good analysis except the Dem politicians are running as fast as they can away from Dr. D. whenever he visits there state. Notice that the governors all have something better to do when he shows up?

    That’s never a good sign…

  11. I can’t help but get the feeling that Mr. Moran just doesn’t like polls very much these days. The poll I cited above is deemed untrustworthy under the all-purpose “liberal bias” dodge. But since Gallup, ARG, Pew, and even the Wall Street Journal, polls also show The Lame Duck sinking faster than a tea cup poodle in a swimming pool, will it be safe to say that Rick will find these polls ideologically tainted as well?

    The real irony here is that Bush is in the process of becoming to Republicans what Dean has become to moderate Democrats, something to stay away from. Just ask the 7 Republican Senators who effectively pulled the plug on two of Bush’s loony court appointments.

  12. According to the dems all the judges were moonbats…except the ones they’ve confirmed and are going to confirm.

    And if you think soc sec reform is dead, dream on.

    You’re in denial bud. Get thee to a 12 step program at once. With Bolton going through this week and the economy humming along, your nuts if you think Bush is through.

  13. Rahht. Sorry I’ve driven you to name calling. I guess I just bring out the child in you.

    Comment by Bob Brown — 6/9/2005 @ 11:27 am

  14. Sorry if you think that “bud” is an epitaph.

    Comment by Rick Moran — 6/9/2005 @ 11:29 am

  15. An epitaph? Now you’re going to shoot me?

    You Bushies are too much. Talk about your angry white male …
