Reid says Howard Dean is "not some wild-eyed, left-wing nut" (KRNV-TV, Feb 23, 2005)

Senator Harry Reid admits Howard Dean was not his first choice to be the new chairman of the national Democratic Party.

And he says he told the Vermont governor so much. But the Nevada Democrat told reporters in Reno Wednesday he's impressed with how Dean has, "taken the darts that were thrown at him" during the primary election. [...]

Reid says, Dean is "not some wild-eyed, left-wing nut."

Glad we cleared that up.

Thanks, Harry, and you're not a dull-witted stiff.

Yes, Howard Dean took every dart during the primaries. Those darts were from Al Sharpton, Joe Lieberman, John Kerry, and John Edwards.

Just wait until HRC opens up on him.

Reid says, Dean is "not some wild-eyed, left-wing nut."

"And, believe you me, I saw plenty of wild-eyed nuts growing up a poor child in my beloved hometown of Searchlight, Nevada. This reminds me of a story..."

"not some wild-eyed, left-wing nut."

Reminds me of Bill Murray's line in Groundhog Day: "I'm a God, not the God."

Howard Dean is not a wild-eyed, left wing nut, he just plays one on TV and at fundraisers and on Internet blog sites.

When, within days after his chairmanship, Dean's allies have to circle the wagons around him to defend him from charges made based upon his record and his statements, charges which if true would make him and the party unacceptable to about 80% of Americans, you know that he and his party are in very big trouble.

The GOP can still snatch defeat from the jaws of victory here, as can be seen in Colorado, and was the case in Arizona.
