DNC Chair Howard Dean Changes Mind: He Really Likes Rednecks, After All

DNC Chair Howard “Yeeeaaaagggghhhh!!!” Dean seems to have had a change of heart. Back in 2003 the failed Presidential nominee cynically disclosed that despite his obvious distaste for “guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks”, he’d court their votes in order to win:

Dean's comment on Confederate flags, pickups sparks Iowa dust-up
WASHINGTON (AP) — A comment by Howard Dean about Confederate flags and pickup trucks has embroiled the leading Democrats in Iowa's presidential caucuses in a name-calling donnybrook. "I still want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks," the former Vermont governor said in a telephone interview quoted in Saturday's Des Moines Register. "We can't beat George Bush unless we appeal to a broad cross-section of Democrats."

He said that as the party moves forward it needs to show those who live south of the Mason-Dixon Line that it respects them and the values they hold. ''I don't believe in blue states or red states,'' the former 2004 presidential candidate said. ''I believe in purple states — and some are more purple than others.'' http://www.tennessean.com/government/archives/05/03/67294794.shtml?Element_ID=67294794
