Dean Headed to Upstate New York
Hey, look! Politics is finally rearing its ugly head around my area. And who better to bring it here than... Howard Dean. Now that he is leading our party, he is on a campaign to unify the Democrats.
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean spreads his message of grass-roots organizing tonight at Alfred University and Wednesday at Cornell University in Ithaca, just days after his intense verbal jousting with new State Republican Chairman Stephen J. Minarik of Rochester. And in a telephone interview Monday with The Buffalo News, Dean labeled upstate the kind of turf already proving more receptive to the Democratic gospel.
"They don't balance budgets, they're cutting back on local school budgets, and they're loading people up with unfunded mandates," Dean said of the GOP. "That's been awful for places like upstate New York."
OK! Way to go, Howard! You've successfully unified New York! Now, what do you say we try for one of those red states? Or even a swing state? Or even any state other than New York and California.
Yeah, this Dean leadership looks like it's gonna work out wonderfully...
