In moving to endorse Howard Dean, Al Gore embraced an insurgent candidate who has spent months railing against the brand of centrist-at-home, hawkish-abroad Democratic politics that Mr. Gore worked 20 years to help build. And in winning the endorsement, Dr. Dean has shown that he is now much more concerned about wooing the Washington establishment than whacking it.
Politics makes strange bedfellows? You bet...
In August, Mr. Gore made a policy speech at New York University in Manhattan, criticizing the Bush administration's handling of the war in Iraq. The event was sponsored by MoveOn.org, the grass-roots Internet organization that was founded in opposition to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton and has been instrumental in Dr. Dean's campaign.
From an NY Times nonsense piece on the Gore endorsement. I for one cannot stand this garbage about Dean as a "grassroots", "insurgent" candidate. He's the ultimate elitist, his followers are dissafected, upper-middle class white people who think Europe is right about everything and its all the Jews fault, and supported by an anti-war movement that, the last time I checked, was running at 30% public support. I think George McGovern got more then that. The MoveOn.org reference is very telling though, as they are an ultra-Left anti-semitic organization which is fanatically anti-American, anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic. Don't take my word for it, go check out their policy statements. Then check their chat rooms, it even scarier. What we are witnessing here is nothing less than the Chomskyfication of the Democratic Party.
