Bipartisan Demand For Apology From Dean

Our esteemed Lt. Governor here in Maryland, Michael Steele, is demanding an apology from Howard Dean over his racist comments. From WBAL.

Lt. Gov. Michael Steele is calling for an apology from Howard Dean, the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Steele took issue with Dean for telling what Steele described as a “racist” joke to the Democratic black caucus.
….
Steele, Maryland’s first black lieutenant governor, called the remarks “racially insensitive and intolerable.”

He said Democrats wonder why they are losing ground among African-Americans and other minorities, and they need look no further than Dean’s remark.

On top of that, Democratic Congressman Charles Rangel also called for Dean to apologize on Sean Hannity’s radio show, according to Newsmax.

The most powerful African American member of the House of Representatives is calling on Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean to apologize for a racially insensitive joke he told Friday during an address to the Congressional Black Caucus.
….
Addressing the comment directly, the Harlem Democrat said, “I think Dean may not have used the right language, which he has had problems with before.”

Dean hasn’t even been in office for a week and he is already ssticking his foot in his mouth….

    So now reps. are going to play the “insensitive” game? Next, I suppose, we will have a list of official dem. “code words” for ideas that dare not speak their names.

  4. cdensing says:

    Howard Dean was born with a silver foot in his mouth.

  5. McCain says:

    ugh, not this again. Only the most hyper-senstive politically-correct girlie-man should be bothered by Dean’s comments. Tis funny to watch the criticism from each side, and for completely different reasons. Some Democrats criticize him because they think the race of a person is an important characteristic. Some Republicans criticism him because he is Howard Dean.

    Will noone rid me of this turbulent chairman?
