BILL SCHNEIDER UPDATE....I already blogged about this yesterday, but now that the transcript is available it's even worse than I thought. Here's what CNN's Bill Schneider said yesterday about Howard Dean's stance on the war:

President Bush can claim consistency. Does Governor Dean's support for Bosnia and Kosovo, and his opposition to Iraq, make him a hypocrite? No. It makes him a Democrat.

Of course, Dean supported the Afghanistan war and, as Atrios points out, Bush wasn't exactly a wholehearted supporter of the Kosovo campaign and neither was the Republican party in general.

Casually insinuating that Democrats are just naturally hypocrites is disgusting. Schneider and CNN should be ashamed of themselves.
