"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Dean Lies about Party Platform on Gays

Were Dean a Conservative, the msm would not have described one of the daily faux pas of Dr. Howie as a "misstatement," or "mischaracterization."

From Yahoo:

Democratic chairman Howard Dean mischaracterized his party's platform on gay rights in an interview courting evangelicals, then set the record straight Thursday when an advocacy group called him on it.

In the interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network News Dean was quoted as saying:
“The Democratic Party platform from 2004 says that marriage is between a man and a woman. That's what it says. I think where we may take exception with some religious leaders is that we believe in inclusion, that everybody deserves to live with dignity and respect, and that equal rights under the law are important.”
What if no one that knew any better hadn't heard this interview.

Further info is available from The Task Force.

I don't think those strange Christians like lying either...
