Dishonest Dean

| | Comments (0)
Howard Dean is quoted as recently saying:

The president and his right-wing Supreme Court think it is "okay" to have the government take your house if they feel like putting a hotel where your house is.
But it was the three right-wing justices (Scalia, Thomas, Rehnquist) who opposed that decision, and the four liberals (Stevens, Ginsburg, Breyer, Souter) who were in favor of it. The two moderates (O'Connor against, Kennedy for) were split. There was nothing remotely "right-wing" about the decision, and in fact, it is just the opposite: it was a "left-wing" decision.

Dean adds, "We think that eminent domain does not belong in the private sector. It is for public use only." Then fine, you should welcome more right-wing justices to the court.

Much of what Dean says is crazy and stupid and deceptive and wrong, but this statement has crossed over into the area of "entirely indefensible." The guy's a first-class nutjob.
