Dean is UCC

So apparently it was just recently noted that Howard Dean, Democratic National Committee Chair hopeful, is a UCC member.

Dean, you may remember, is the featured player in an overplayed CNN spot where he can be seen yelling at the Iowa caucus. I believe the yell can also be found mixed with different drumbeats on your local mp3-sharing software.

He gives impassioned speeches against racism, but also proclaims hatred for Republicans. Not just what they stand for, mind you.

He accuses the opposition of being all about 'God, guns, and gays,' and declares that his favorite book of the New Testament is Job.

One can't fault him for being no-nonsense, but there are a couple things to fault him for in the meantime. Some, due to a blind sense of loyalty, won't. I will.

But I guess if we like voting for the guy we'd rather have a beer with nowadays, he'll do fine.

Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?
