An interesting article at TomPaine.com asserts that tons of folks like Howard Dean and Al Franken, but that the crusty, liberal talking heads won’t get on the bandwagon, and they’re keeping the rest of us down.
“Franken’s book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them, is the best-selling book in the country — and it’s making conservatives apoplectic. Howard Dean has brought more passion to the Democratic primary than all of his opponents combined. So it’s no surprise that liberals are buying Franken’s book and driving up Dean’s poll numbers. After years of feeling cheated and attacked, liberals are mad as hell and don’t want to take it anymore. There is, however, one significant exception: the liberal punditocracy. ”
He sure does use the word “liberals” a lot! That always sets off a few alarms for me. The article is strangely titled: “Franken-Dean.” I thought it was about a monster.
