Dick Cheney Holds Howard Dean Fundraiser

In an interview with Sean Hannity to be broadcast on Fox News tomorrow, Dick Cheney gives Howard Dean a ringing endorsement:
Howard Dean is "over the top," Vice President Dick Cheney says.

"I've never been able to understand his appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I've never met anybody who does. He's never won anything, as best I can tell.

"So far, I think he's probably helped us more than he has them.

"That's not the kind of individual you want to have representing your political party."
Translation: That's not the kind of individual Dick Cheney wants to have representing my political party.

Thanks, Dick.

You can show your appreciation here.

Update: Digby on today's Press the Meat: "The Knights of the Botox all made it quite clear that while Bush catering to his base is a smart strategy, they agree with the DC Dems that catering to the filthy Democrat rabble is quite beneath any civilized politician. But then, as we all know, Bush's base are Real Americans while the Democratic base consists of a bunch of godless, bi-coastal, terrorist sympathizers who are waaaay outside the mainstream. All 49% of 'em. No way are Judy, Gwen, Father Tim, and Dean Broder associated with those treasonous bastards. Why, everybody on Nantucket practically lives on pork rinds these days."

Update II: "My view is FOX News is a propaganda outlet for the Republican Party and I don't comment on FOX News," Dean said. That was in response to vice president Dick Cheney calling Howard Dean "over the top" on Fox News on Sunday.

Oh he is simply a ROCK STAR.
