From the Democrats are pussies department

Robert Novak notes Howard Dean’s TV schedule:

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Howard Dean routinely turns down requests from all television networks for traditional joint appearances with his Republican counterpart, Ken Mehlman.

Dean is a former governor of Vermont and was a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination last year, while Mehlman is a former staffer with little past TV experience. Dean may wish to avoid what happened during the last election cycle to then DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe, who consistently came out second best against then RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie, who, like Mehlman, had previously been a staffer.

I find it interesting that despite the fact that Democrats still insist that they have the IQ advantage when their strongest support comes from those who didn’t finish high school, they have less money and their party leader is afraid to even appear in the same room as a Republican with whom he might have to argue.

I suppose it’s difficult to get substantial mileage out of the “ha ha, UR so LAM3, lol!” method of debate. “YEEEEAAAAAAH!”
