Howlin' Howie Dean

DNC Chairman "Howlin' " Howie Dean went on Fox News Sunday yesterday and revealed himself to be a dishonest jackass.

The @sdutOpinion Editorial pages used to be fairly mainstream conservative. When I applied for a letters editor opening there in the mid-00s, I was asked if there's an editorial I wouldn't write. I replied: a pro-abortion one. 1/
