As I said in one of my earlier posts, I'm not exactly comfortable with what Dean has said about the Republicans. I was leery of it, feared it showed he spoke before he thought, and gave away sound bites.

I still am. But if I was leery of what Dean said, imagine what this spoken excrement made me feel:

"Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers,"

"Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals."

Karl Rove, the senior political advisor to Bush, belched those words. Wait, those slurs and accusations not enough for you? How about this one:

"is just inconceivable and truly incorrigible that in the midst of the war, that the Democratic leaders would be conducting guerrilla warfare on American troops..."

Joe Wilson uttered this accusation. And then he went on to say:

"The American taxpayer is already providing accommodations for detainees, who are currently more comfortable than most of our men and women in uniform..."

He's referencing Durbin's comments, where he (Durbin) mentions a FBI report about a prisoner who was shackled for twenty-four hours, and urinated and defecated all over himself. I don't think Mr. Wilson honestly believes the American soldiers aren't allowed freedom of movement of or bathroom facilities, so I can only guess he's rock-stupid, a liar, or both.

The face of the Republican Party, folks. Right there. Here's the test to watch out for - who will come out and condemn these statements on the Republican side? At least some Dems raised a cry when Dean made his VASTLY more innocuous comments - which Republicans will come out and decry these vile, disgusting, asinine, venomous attacks?

And the most frightening question - will anyone?
