A New Hampshire resident writes:
Apparently Deaniacs are still going door to door, even in my small town
about 1 hour from Manchester. I arrived home from shopping today to find a
large yellow manila envelope in my mailbox. Sealed with a giant Dean
campaign sticker, the envelope contained:
*1 DVD titled “Howard Dean for America–Fulfilling the Promise of America”
*1 nicely designed trifold color brochure proclaiming that “This is a
campaign to unite and empower Americans . . .to move the insiders out and
let the people in!” The brochure features such positive messages as “I know
what’s wrong with America.” My favorite excerpt: “As a medical doctor, I
have been trained to diagnose an illness and prescribe the proper treatment.
I have frequently applied the same techniques as a Governor.”
*2 copies of NH newspaper endorsements (the Sunday Sentinel, whatever that
is, and newspapers of the Salmon Press, whatever that is).
*1 page titled “Why Howard Dean is the Best Candidate to Defeat Bush,” with
lists of his supposed advantages and some old pre-Iowa charts comparing him
to other candidates in terms of popularity.
If I weren’t an Evil Conservative, I would feel a little sorry for Dean. I
think he knows he is in deep quicksand. But at least he’s fighting.
