THE CONSERVATIVE DNC?

It does not get any better than this if you enjoy politics. Howard Dean in an interview on the 700 club did his absolute best to portray the Democratic Party as a party that Evangelicals would be comfortable with. Dean is the chair of the DNC and unashamedly prostituted himself in the interview. He was so transparent that even the Gay and Lesbian activists came after him. Matt Foreman, the Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force called for Dean to stop "pandering" and begin to represent the true views of his party. What upset them so much was Dean proclaiming that the platform for his party in 2004 affirmed marriage as between one man and one woman. Foreman said his group was going to return the $5000 contribution they had recently received from the DNC.

You can get used to this type of "pandering" from the Democratic party and their candidates. They will do their very best to run to the right on issues so they will have a better opportunity to get elected. All you have to do is listen to Hillary Clinton these days, you would think she was a conservative republican. Isn't it interesting that they know they need to appear more conservative and traditional in order to be elected, but once elected they feel no need to govern in a way that represents their voters. It is the height of hypocrisy and something we need to be aware of as we make decisions at the polls the next few years. As far as Howard Dean goes, if you like politics, it does not get any better than watching him and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force doing battle, eeeeeeeeeehaaaaaahhh!!
