Save us from that devil Dean!
It seems like every week there is someone coming out with an article that attempts to disabuse Dean supporters of the notion that he is a lefty. What always surprises them is that they get inundated with letters from Dean supporters saying that they already know that. The truth of the matter is that the image of Dean as a lefty is a media created myth that Dean had nothing to do with. Dean was against the war, opposed the Bush tax cuts and is for universal health care, so the media immediately labeled him a lefty/wacko in the Nader vein. Dean supporters weren't fooled. But apparently several prominent left-leaning commentators have been fooled. Fooled enough to think that they have to, regrettably, tell us the "truth" about Dr. Dean. It makes you wonder if they give to much credence to the reportage of the establishment media. Please stop trying to save Dean supporters from themselves. We know what we are doing and we are going into this with our eyes wide open.
