Howard Dean's racist comments
It did not take Dean long to taste his own foot. It is no wonder that the right is so thrilled with Dean leading the democrats. He will self destruct and take what is left of the Democratic Party with him.
- Two prominent African-American Republicans have demanded an apology from the new DNC Chairman Howard Dean for saying at a Democratic Black Caucus meeting last week, "You think the Republicans could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here."
And in a joint statement, Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele and former Oklahoma Congressman J.C. Watts say they are outraged over the insensitive and intolerable remarks. Adding, "This kind of backward thinking remind us of a horrible time in history, when blacks were seen as servants." But the chair of the caucus says Dean's remarks were well received, insisting they were, "A statement of fact" and Steele and Watts are blowing things out of proportion.

My mind races at the thought of Carl Rove saying that. The caucus then states it was a "statement of fact." The fact is that many people of color voted for Republicans in the last election, and with Dean at the wheel I predict many more will in the next election.
