A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

Thursday, January 22, 2004 : Howard and Judy Dean Discuss Anger Issue: "'I'm a Human Being.' Howard and Judy Dean on Their Marriage, His Supposed Temper, and That Yell"

Let's see, now. I do not think that anyone has accused Howard Dean of NOT being a human being. That seems to be self-evident. That, unfortunately for the Dr. Governor, is not the only requirement for being President. Rush Limbaugh is a human being; Jerry Falwell is a human being; Saddam Hussein is a human being; Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, Martha Stewart, and Oprah Winfrey are human beings; Bud Powell is a human being. Neither I nor my wife would vote for any of them to be President of the United States.

This is obvious: we want an extraordinary human being with commitment to the American Constitution, history and values, self-control, wisdom, compassion and patience, experience, dignity, and decency to be president of the United States. Being a human being is not an excuse for bad behavior.
