The two faces of the Screaming Weenie

Howie Dean then:
"The Democratic Party platform from 2004 says that marriage is between a man and a woman. That's what it says"

Howie Dean now:
"Unlike Republicans, who try to claim the mantle of family values, Democrats value all families.

"I am proud to lead a Party that has led the fight for hate crimes legislation, and fought for laws banning any discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and on sexual orientation... And I am proud to lead a party that understands that using marriage as a wedge issue and scapegoating groups of Americans to win elections is morally wrong.

"Instead of working to provide equal rights for all and instead of engaging in that essential process in a constructive manner, Republicans like Karl Rove and Bill Frist are trying to short-circuit this process by legislating discrimination into the Constitution, converting it from a document that guarantees basic rights to one that denies them. And they are doing it all to deflect attention away from their failed leadership...

"This is morally wrong. It hurts LGBT Americans, and it hurts our country...

Any questions? I mean, other than "How stupid does Dean think Americans are?"
