Dean's Loss in the Underground - How did the Dean supporters in the DemocraticUnderground take his loss in the Iowa caucuses? As you can see, not well:
I am so pissed at the self imolation of the party and the clear rightward movement.A Kerry win represents rightward movement? The man received a rating of "6" from the American Conservative Union. The top rating is 100.
I was already pretty drunk. I went ahead and bitched out my mother and girlfriend, who have been less than supportive of Dean. Yeah, I know. I shouldn't have done that. I'm really pissed. I don't like the direction these 'Democrats' are taking us in. But, I don't know. Maybe I should just forget about politics for good.I'm sure your mother and girlfriend would support you in that decision.
I am not giving up, but it is pretty clear to me that Democracy in this coutnry is in its death throes.All too true. It's not as though we're holding elections or anything.
He has received a bum rap from the media - outlandish treatment, really. This bit about 'where is his wife?' is totally out of line and Dean merits an 'Atta-boy!' for not losing his cool.Whether he has lost his mind, though, has yet to be determined.
So, I just watched Dean's speech that has everyone so worked up, and I have to say I cannot believe that anyone has any kind of a problem with this.To quote Howard Dean, "yaaawwrrrggh!"
