I am Howard Dean! I refuse to stop saying stupid things.

Ap reports on the latest Howard Dean gaff "Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean (news - web sites) said Sunday that the standard of living for Iraqis is a 'whole lot worse' since Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s removal from power in last year's American-led invasion. "

This is not a joke. Howard Dean actually said this. Which means he knows exactly what the standard of living was before the fall of Saddam as well as what the standard of living is now. More importantly it means that he totally disregards system of government in the equation for standard of living.

Isn't freedom of speech a factor? How about freedom from persecution? Don;t these things matter? Will they matter under a Dean administration? If they will not then it makes his attacks on John Ashcroft and the Patriot Act virtually meaningless.
