POST ON DEAN

Filed under: 2004 Election — Patterico @ 12:06 pm

The Washington Post has a compelling editorial today slamming Howard Dean. Among the adjectives used to describe Governor Dean or his positions: glib, condescending, hypocritical, and disingenuous.

Yup, that’s him in a nutshell. But they forgot “smug.”

I especially liked a quote the Post dug up from an August interview. After talking about giving Democrats some “red meat,” Dean said: “I won’t be talking like this during the general [election], if I get the nomination.”

That’s the kind of thing politicians all think. Few are arrogant enough to say it out loud.

What a putz.

UPDATE: Thanks to Mahalo (who I assume was Xrlq in his “Mahalo” disguise) for tipping me to my duplicate entry on this topic. Apparently I felt so strongly about this that I needed to say it twice. Stupid Movable Type. I meant to leave his comment up, but apparently I deleted the wrong post.
