You may have missed it however.
Especially if you are a Democrat.
Since only 200 of you bothered to show up (150, according to the AP).
Even though it cost only $20 ($10 if you’re a student).
But hey, the Omaha World Herald was there.
And buried the story on page B-3…
But then, Dr. Dean hasn’t exactly made Nebraska a priority either, seeing as Nebraska is number 49 on his stops of the 50 states (he hasn’t attended his luau in Hawaii yet). That’s right, Dean trekked to Alaska, before Nebraska. (Dean: Republicans ‘will not bully us’ – OWH – 4/12/07.)
Even Nebraska Dem party chair Steve Achelpohl admitted that Nebraska was a “distant stepchild” before Dean was elected. Apparently being number 50 makes you distant (as President Bubba numbered the Nebraska Dems). Being number 49 now makes them…uh…well…a distant stepchild without a lei or a hula skirt. (Dean confident Nebraska wants change – LJS – 4/12/07.)
Of course, Dean gave the typical witless palaver that one would expect from the former podium screamer. He sputtered this ridiculous damnation:
There have been unspeakable things said about the Democratic Party that are not true. For a long time, we have not been here to fight back.
Is that right, Doc? Yeah, we just about never hear the Dem talking points rattled off on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, PBS, and NPR.
You know, it has been said that Democrats believe that, at their extreme, Republicans are evil. With that absurd statement about “unspeakable things”, Howard Dean makes that point.
Conversely, it is said that Republicans believe that, at their extreme, Democrats are just plain ignorant.
You represent the extreme well, Dr. Dean.
