Other things - Howard Dean Visit
Monday, June 27, 2005
The following post is from the local chapter of Democrats. Its humorous, but I thought I'd add my own: - Howard Dean Visit: "Liberals Enthusiastically Welcome Howard Dean to South Carolina: Top Ten Reasons Why Palmetto Republicans Secretly Envy Howard Dean" True Blue Democrats posts the Top Ten Reasons Why Palmetto Republicans Secretly Envy Howard Dean Responses to the TOP 10 are below: 10. National Republican Party Chairman Ken Mehlman is so boring compared to Howard. Anyone remember anything Ken Mehlman ever said? No one particularly remembers anything Howard says, unless one considers "the scream" as articulating something. Wait, some do remember one thing, "The Republican Party is a white Christian party" 9. When he served as Lieutenant Governor of Vermont, Howard had a clean driving record C'mon, Andre was in a hurry (and much younger than Howard). 8. SC Republicans love Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey and Cherry Garcia and just wished they lived near the factory like Howard I think it's more about campaign contributions. Didn't Ben & Jerry finance Howard's? 7. Howard made his mom so proud by not only becoming a doctor but by marrying one And HE thought that this prepared him for politics! 6. When Howard was first elected Governor of Vermont, he actually won more votes than his opponent It IS Vermont… 5. They realize that Howard was right when he said invading Iraq was not necessary Only because his friend Lindsey Graham is sewing the seed of doubt. 4. Since Vermont is 'next-door' to Canada, Howard has always known that French is an official language of Canada and being 'Franco-phobic' would not help him should he one day ever want a job with the US Ambassador to Canada Sending Dean to Canada would be like putting Bolton in the U.N. 3. As Governor, he balanced his state's budget every year without alienating both parties of the legislature with vetoes that both parties voted to override Tax increases tend to do that. Both parties? 2. Howard has never used live pigs to persuade others to his point of view But didn't he try to call them? Wait, that wasn't a pig call was it... 1. Before Howard's innovative internet-based Presidential campaign, South Carolina Republicans only used the internet to download pictures of which their pastor would not approve. Like this one:

    Howdy, Nolff! Love Democrats, love Republicans-- all of them people, all struggling to make sense of the world and its complexities/absurdities!

    Thanks for stopping by! Stay in touch, Man!


    ps. One thing the News Snipet recognizes is that we are not always fairly represented by the loudest of us.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
