SPUTTERING RAGE....I had a thought over lunch about Howard Dean. You know how conservatives keep telling us that incoherent anger is an electoral loser? After all, upon mature reflection they now realize that Clinton hatred didn't get them anywhere, and we ought to learn from their experience.

(Actually, I still haven't figured out how it was a loser for them, but we'll leave that for another day.)

Anyway, as near as I can tell there's no candidate that brings out sputtering rage in conservatives more than Howard Dean. So if they're really right, then nominating Dean is a good thing because it will put our opponents back into sputtering rage mode and guarantee us victory! Hooray!

(Of course, there's still that whole problem of whether sputtering rage is really a loser. But I said I'd leave that for another day, didn't I?)
