Dean Defends Record on Race in Debate:

“DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Under fire in a campaign debate, Howard Dean conceded grudgingly Sunday night that he never named a black or Latino to his cabinet during nearly 12 years as governor of Vermont.”

OK, up front: Dean is the worst possible person to hold ANY office, much less that of President. I think the guy is scum of the earth.

That said, it should be pointed out that Vermont is a state that according to the census, is over 98% white. That fact should explain the whole deal, except to say that Dean and the Democrats are falling victim to what the race warlord Sharpton does best: Racial pandering.

That Dean is the target? (snicker) Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Update: An interesting side note on this story, comes from Donna Brazile , who usually plays the race card.  She now says Dean’s record is fair play for rivals who are mad about his rise, but she thinks Sharpton’s attacks caught him off guard.

“But I also think that was a low blow to attack him on his Cabinet, the people he chose to put around him versus his policies,” she said.

So, now we’re concerned not over their skin color, but about the job they do? An interesting position for a far-leftist quota queen to take, isn’t it, Donna?
