Is It The Return Of The "Me, Al Franken" Decade?
Saving the world (or at least our sanity) from marginal presidential candidates in New Hampshire:
Followers of perennial presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche interrupted a campaign event for Dean on Monday in Manchester, New Hampshire, before being drowned out by his supporters and removed from the room with the assistance of author-commentator Al Franken. They screamed that Dean is "a liar" and not a Democrat. They said the only candidates telling the truth are LaRouche and Kerry.
Also in the same article: Dean tells Kerry to "stop whining."
The Massachusetts senator has accused Dean of running a negative campaign in recent days by questioning his 2002 vote to authorize President Bush to go to war in Iraq and his decision to vote against the 1991 Persian Gulf War, which Dean supported.
"I was the front-runner in this race for a long time. Everybody threw everything they could at me," Dean told CNN's "American Morning."
"One of the things John will have to learn as a front-runner is (to) stop whining when people say something different about him."
If you're reading this in New Hampshire (Ha! As if!) and you haven't voted yet, go out and do so. If you don't vote in the primary, you have no right to bitch when you think the Democratic nominee isn't worth the chad you punched out of your ballot in November.
