HOWARD NAILS TOM


Howard Dean eviscerated Tom DeLay, whom he followed on This Week. DeLay reeled off a list of Democratic pols whom he declared had been found guilty of corruption, including Nancy Pelosi. (Excuse me? Did I miss something? When did THAT happen?) Howard followed with a crack about him not needing to respond to a man who's on the way out because he's already been censured by Congress and is under indictment himself, then reminded George that we know now that The Hammer knew exactly who was paying for his Abramoff-financed luxury excursions.

It would have been nice if George S. had fact-checked DeLay's assertions about Nancy et al (excluding William Jefferson). But at least we had Howard detailing the leaking of CIA operative Valerie Plame from Bush (Rove) to Cheney (Libby). And when asked by George S. if Jefferson should resign if he is indicted, Howard unhesitatingly said, "Yes." He made DeLay look like just what he is, a corrupt scumbag who continues to get a major media platform to spin his outrageous lies.

And just in a physical sense, Dean appeared the serious man with a plan to address the nation's problems, while smiling Tom looked like your standard Rethuglican spinmeister.

I'd only add to that "and hearts."
