Dean: Roberts pick a distraction

Howard Dean...the gift that keeps on giving! From NewsMax (all emphasis mine):
DNC chief Howard Dean joined liberal group in claiming President Bush's nomination of John Roberts was an effort to deflect attention from Plamegate.
Nice job, Howie. Align with proven losers and sink your party's efforts before they have a chance to get started. Continuing:
Late Tuesday Dean issued a statement blasting the Roberts nomination while questioning the timing of the announcement.
It sure is fishy to nominate a Supreme Court justice when a vacancy occurs! It's a conspiracy, I tell ya!

"Faced with a growing scandal surrounding the involvement of Deputy White House chief of Staff Karl Rove and Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff Lewis Libby in leaking the identity of a covert CIA operative, President Bush announced his nomination of John Roberts to the Supreme Court late this evening," Dean's statement began.
A "growing" scandal? It's going away, because reality has dawned on these people that it was a much as they wanted it to be one. It's a disappearing non-scandal, Howie!

Also, It's been proven Plame was not covert. Dean is lying, and he knows he's lying, but when has the left let a little thing like truth get in the way of a good sound bite?

Dean continued: "It is disappointing that when President Bush had the chance to bring the country together, he instead turned to a nominee who may have impressive legal credentials, but also has sharp partisan credentials that cannot be ignored.
Nothing says "This guy is soooo partisan" more than a 99-0 confirmation vote he received just two years ago.

"Democrats take very seriously the responsibility to protect the individual rights of all Americans and are committed to ensuring that ideological judicial activists are not appointed to the Supreme Court.
Race Baiter Ginsburg? Steven Breyer? Not ideological judicial activists? Right, and I'm a Greenpeace activist with a Nader 2000 sticker on my Yugo!

How Dean managed to escape his handlers is beyond me. I love it, though! Christmas comes early every time he opens his piehole!
