Liberal “tolerance”

Powerline notes an article in the Lawrence Journal-World about Howard Dean recent visit to Kansas.

"The issue is not abortion," Dean told the closed-door fund-raiser. "The issue is whether women can make up their own mind instead of some right-wing pastor, some right-wing politician telling them what to do."

And Dean told the Hiebert fund-raiser that gay marriage was a Republican diversion from discussions of ballooning deficits and lost American jobs. That presents an opportunity to attract moderate Republicans, he said.

"Moderate Republicans can't stand these people (conservatives), because they're intolerant. They don't think tolerance is a virtue," Dean said, adding: "I'm not going to have these right-wingers throw away our right to be tolerant."

And concluding his backyard speech with a litany of Democratic values, he added: "This is a struggle of good and evil. And we're the good."

A perfect example of Liberal tolerance. Dean is a gift from God to the GOP.

Powerline finishes with a comment that must be repeated:

How many times over the last four years have we seen Democrats ridicule President Bush as simple-minded and naive because he views the world in terms of good vs. evil? Too many to count. One wonders whether the same liberal pundits will criticize Dean's "struggle of good and evil" talk. Or whether they'll note that, however manichean Bush ostensibly is, he's never said anything remotely approaching Dean's "I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for."
