Howard in San Francisco

Howard Dean made a stop in San Francisco yesterday and, according to the Chronicle, made more derogatory comments about Republicans. Big surprise.
Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean, unapologetic in the face of recent criticism that he has been too tough on his political opposition, said in San Francisco this week that Republicans are "a pretty monolithic party. They all behave the same. They all look the same. It's pretty much a white Christian party."
I'm certain that this kind of rhetoric played very well here in the Bay Area where we are as ethnically diverse a population as one will find. But diverse ideologically we are not. Tolerant of different ideologies we are not. Try telling a group of strangers at a party that you're conservative and watch everyone move to the other side of the room.

I'm also amused by the Chronicle's choice of words, "recent criticism that he has been too tough on his political opposition." Too tough? He hasn't been "tough" at all. He's been an immature, name-calling embarrassement to his party. Keep it up, Howard.
