Someone should shut this guy up...

Howard Dean is out of control... again.

Memorable quotes:

"The idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong."

"This is the same situation we had in Vietnam."

I would agree with these statements if half of the country was out of our control and supported by another superpower; if the Iraqis didn't care about governing themselves; and if we had lost tens of thousands of troops without any progress. The upcoming elections and the previous two are enough to prove these statements wrong.

"I think we need a strategic redeployment over a period of two years," Dean said. "Bring the 80,000 National Guard and Reserve troops home immediately. They don't belong in a conflict like this anyway."

Eh? Did I miss something? National Guard and reservists don't belong in combat? What are they Howard, only sandbaggers? These men and women receive the same training as everyone else in our military. What is Howard thinking?

"President Bush got rid of Saddam Hussein and that was a great thing, but that could have been done in a very different way."


"What we see today is very much like what was going in Watergate."

It's too bad that no one like yourself has come before you, Howard. But don't worry - you will soon be the nutjob standard that all nutjobs are compared to.

UPDATE from Powerline:

It will be interesting to see whether other Democrats try to distance themselves from Dean. Frankly, I doubt that most will bother. The truth is that most antiwar Democrats not only believe we can't win in Iraq, they hope we don't win. They care more about scoring political points against the Bush administration than they do about the freedom of the Iraqi people or about America's national security. So my guess is that they will see little to criticize in Dean's latest outrage.

anything to use against Bush...

Yeah these are bad, but Dean has some even more ridiculous junk. Check this out:

"The president and his right-wing Supreme Court think it is okay to have the government take your house if they feel like putting a hotel where your house is."

Guess what Mr. Dean, the right wing of the Supreme Court dissented from this unjust opinion. Dean agrees with Scalia, Thomas and Rehnqusit, the ones he normally calls "radicals". The justices he supports made the decisison in Kelo that he evidently opposes. Thsi is the definition of not knowing your ass from a hole in the gorund.
