Let's defend Howard Dean for a moment
Some intelligent and reasonable people think Dr. Dean is just getting his comeuppance, but I think the attacks on Dean are getting a little whacky. This guy's enough of a nut-job, there's fertile ground for attack without resorting to:
1. Al Sharpton's gutter-level, race-baiting attack that Governor Dean didn't have a cabinet that looked like America. Earth to Al: Vermont doesn't look like America. Dean goes on the defense today.
2. The weird, pseudo-smear at Dean's wife because she evidently doesn't share her husband's interest in politics. I have no idea what the insinuation is here, but the NYT could not possibly have run out of campaign stories already.
