Dean goes off the deep end...again. So what else is new?

I frequently state that every time Howard, Dean...opens his piehole, it feels like Christmas has come early. Hat tip to my friends at Moonbattery for this hilarious gem:
In a startling display of his total disconnect from conventional reality, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Howard Dean treated members of the College Democrats of America last Friday to some of his most rabid demagoguery to date. The students were educated in the bizarre alternate reality inhabited by Dr. Dean, in which President Bush is to blame for the Supreme Court's recent decision allowing private property to be seized so that new private owners can develop it.

"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," Dean bellowed.

Anyone who follows the news will be aware that Bush has yet to place a judge on the Supreme Court. Anyone who follows it closely will know that it was the court's left-wing contingent — Stevens, Souter, Ginsburg, and Breyer — who with the help of Kennedy passed the disturbingly unconstitutional ruling that eminent domain can be used to seize private property for commercial development. The court's three conservatives — Rehnquist, Scalia, and Thomas — all dissented, as did O'Connor.

Wiser Democrats have been trying to get the doctor to take his medication, or at least tone down his public outbursts, going so far as to denounce some of the outrageous insults he has directed at Republicans — to no avail, evidently, as Dean was in true form in front of his fellow adolescents at the CDA's annual convention.

Drawing the curtain on the era of moral integrity personified by the Clintons, Republicans have brought a "culture of corruption" to Washington, according to Dean.

"If we want it back, we'll have to buy it back," he growled, plainly spelling out the strategy of George Soros and leftists from the entertainment industry.

"We are Democrats because we have moral values," Dean brayed, milking the line for extra laughs by explaining that moral values entail balancing the budget and supporting a "strong public education system" — which some would interpret to mean pandering to teachers' unions at the expense of students' educations.

After whipping the cognitively challenged crowd into a frenzy with his divisive rhetoric by calling Republicans bigots, Dean shrieked over the applause, "I am sick of being divided!"

In support of his firm stand against divisiveness, he declared that Republicans only care about children before they are born, not afterward.

It's easy to imagine the speech running on until men in white jackets emerged from the crowd with oversized butterfly nets, frightening Dean away from the podium.
I seldom feel the need to respond to or get worked up over Howie's diatribes, mainly because I just take it for granted that enough people can see how clearly loony the man is. Had he been the Dems' nominee last year, it's quite possible that Bush would have won all 50 states (though deep blue state Vermont, Howie's home with socialists Bernie Sanders and Ben & Jerry, would have been a toss-up). Yet even had Bush won all 50 states, the left would still insist there was no mandate.
