Is Dean On Our Payroll Or What?

Howard Dean Implicates Harry Reid in Abramoff Scandal

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Sunday that Democrats who took money from Indian tribes represented by Jack Abramoff and who did something on behalf of those tribes have "a big problem."

Dean made the statement apparently unaware that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has reportedly done exactly that.

Under questioning by "Fox News Sunday's" Chris Wallace, Dean claimed that Democrats did no favors for Abramoff's Indian tribe clients:

"Nobody got anything out of the Democrats from Jack Abramoff," the top Democrat insisted. "No Democrat delivered anything and there's no accusation and no investigation that any Democrat ever delivered anything to Jack Abramoff. And that's not true of the Republicans."

But Wallace countered: "So if we find that there were some Democrats who wrote letters on behalf of some of the Indian tribes that Abramoff represented, then what do you say, sir?"
Dean's response: "That's a big problem. And those Democrats are in trouble. And they should be in trouble."

In November 2005 the Associated Press reported that Senate Minority Leader Reid had accepted tens of thousands of dollars from an Abramoff client, the Coushatta Indian tribe, after interceding with Secretary of the Interior Gail Norton over a casino dispute with a rival tribe.

Reid "sent a letter to Norton on March 5, 2002," the AP said. "The next day, the Coushattas issued a $5,000 check to Reid's tax-exempt political group, the Searchlight Leadership Fund. A second tribe represented by Abramoff sent an additional $5,000 to Reid's group. Reid ultimately received more than $66,000 in Abramoff-related donations between 2001 and 2004."

Questioned about the donations in December by "Fox News Sunday's" Wallace, Reid immediately turned testy.

Wild Thing's comment...........
ROTFLMAO. Open mouth, insert foot once again. YEEEEEHAAAAAAW
Remember his rant last week.....Not ONE RED DIME went to Democrats!"
It was a classic moment watching Dean back track and try to deny something he said within seconds of making the statement. Please let this loud mouthed cretin appear more often.

Here Howard, Lunch is on me............... haha

Is this simple-minded screwball the undigested kernel in the owl pellet or what? Within listening distance, he was claiming no Democrat was associated, in any way, with Ambramof, and now he's admitting the possibility. Imagine how his old patients feel now. That lump in your neck is nothing today, and a grapefruit tumor next week.

Not too long ago, Dean would have been confined, if not tied, to a trundel bed in the attic. Not quite crazy enough to be committed, but so unpredictable and embarrassing that you might find him slurping from the bacon fat bucket or doing vulgar things with his socks.

Now the Big Dem Family has him in the parlor, where he can be seen by everyone. Priceless.

Howard Dean and the dimocraps making public statements is kinda like Rev. Jim Jones and his followers gathering around the punch bowl. Keep talking Howard, Ted, Reid, Hillary, et al.

Rhod,hahaha love your expressions.
Your right he would have been committed years ago. I had forgotten about his patients. Yikes to be his patient now that is a scary thought.

Thank you.
