From the Department of Double Standards

Once again the vile mouth on Howard Stern Dean is running like the wind, raking up ad hominems faster than Major League Baseball and steroid accusations (thanks to Drudge for the link):
Dean has suggested that they [Republicans] are "evil." That they are "corrupt." He called them "brain-dead" during a stop in Toronto -- and while the Terri Schiavo case was still in the news. He has tagged Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) as a "liar." Last week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that he mimicked a "drug-snorting Rush Limbaugh" at an event there.
That’s special, isn’t it? I think my favorite line is:
Dean's remarks have not attracted much attention in the national media, in part because he has focused largely on local and regional news outlets since taking the party's helm in February.
I don’t really need to ask what the media would do should a Republican make comments like these, do I? Though it needs no discussion, I should like to mention that “national media” and “not much attention” would not be in the same sentence.

I only wonder if Teresa Heinz Kerry approves of Dean’s antics as part of her call for “more civil tone to politics.” I bet she does.

yeah i remember this stuff being said. when reps are critical of dems they are hatemongers or liars or whatever else the media decides they are, and then dems do the same and its called "speaking truth to power" and "exposing republican lies"
