A GOP plant: In a classic case of burying the lede, Friday's Washington Post got Democrat Party chief Howard Dean to make a startling confession -- but only if you read far enough into the story.
"Have you had advice for Governor Dean about his most recent comments, sir?"
Reid replied that there isn't anyone who hasn't "misspoken" and recited an on-message litany of "important issues" that Democrats are committed to addressing, including the escalating costs of gasoline, health care and college tuition. "We're here today to talk about the American people," he said. But practically everyone else in the room wanted to talk about Howard Dean.
"Senator Reid, you just used the word 'misspoke,' " yelled one reporter, out-shouting a half-dozen others. He asked if Reid thought that Dean had "misspoken."
"You know," Dean interjected, "I think a lot of this is exactly what Republicans want, and that's a diversion."
Howard Dean is a Republican plant.
According to Dean, Republicans want a "diversion," so what does Dean do? He provides one. Day after day, Howard "The Mouth" Dean makes one outrageous statement after another -- all as part of a once-secret GOP plot to divert attention from the party's dastardly doings in Congress!
