Thank You, Al Gore.

Okay, so I don't know if Al Gore's endorsement of Howard Dean is really what left Dean in the dust behind Kerry and Edwards, but if that is the case, my thanks go out to him! I was watching Dean on David Letterman and I was for a moment scared to think of what would happen if that man was the Democratic nominee. What if?

There has to be something in the water in Vermont, their politicians are nutty! When Dave asked him who was better fit for the presidency, a governor or a senator, he stumbled and then lead you to believe that he wasn't an egotist. Historically speaking there have been some awesome governors who reached the Oval Office, but there have only been maybe two who have come from Congress. Could Kerry change this? Maybe, but the chances of Dean flipping the whole scenario around would have been more likely.

And when it comes down to it, I find it frightening to think of Howard "The Scream" Dean addressing anyone with "My Fellow Americans..." Now that's something to scream about!

We're going to Idaho, and Vermont, and New Hampshire, and Arizona... yearrrrrrgh!

Al Gore is of course supporting Kerry now, but the Kerry Camp keeps him safely in the blue states to dish out the type of red meat you dish out to strong supporters without fear of alienating the swing voters. So Al himself wasn't a curse, but what he said and where he said it got Dean in trouble. There's not enough Deaniacs to carry an election, so you have to reach out to the center.

C'mon though, Kerry's newest stance on Iraq is lifted from Dean's. "Wrong war, wrong place, wrong time," that's a direct quotation of what Dean once said! Insistance that we're no safer with Hussein out of the way... Dean! The Iraq war a distraction... Dean! If this is the course Kerry will pursue, you might as well have nominated Dean, at least he'd have stuck with one position.

Okay okay maybe not, after all Kerry would never say "yearrrgh!" Can you imagine... try, you'll laugh.
