Howard Dean States the Obvious

howard deanFrom AP: US Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean called Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki an “anti-Semite” on Wednesday for failing to denounce Hizbullah for its attacks against Israel.

“The Iraqi prime minister is an anti-Semite,” the Democratic leader told a gathering of business leaders in Florida. “We don’t need to spend 200 and 300 and $500 billion bringing democracy to Iraq to turn it over to people who believe that Israel doesn’t have a right to defend itself and who refuse to condemn Hizbullah.”

Apparently, Dean was on a finger-pointing roll this week: While giving a speech to business owners in Florida, he likened senatorial candidate and nebulous 2000 presidential vote counter Katherine Harris to Joseph Stalin.
