WHY DEMOCRATS LOSE ELECTIONS … Plain and simple.
Democrats only have themselves to blame for losing elections. Not George W. Bush, not Karl Rove, not Tom DeLay or even floating chad in Florida or voting machines in Ohio. Here is a perfect example of a lack of consistency where one action is called bigoted while another … well the other is just … you decide.
The following are comments by Howard Dean, DNC Chair on NY Court’s ruling on same sex marriages. If you don’t agree with Howie, “the gift who keeps on giving” Dean you are a bigot.
“As Democrats, we believe that every American has a right to equal protection under the law and to live in dignity. And we must respect the right of every family to live in dignity with equal rights, responsibilities and protections under the law. Today’s decision by the New York Court of Appeals, which relies on outdated and bigoted notions about families, is deeply disappointing, but it does not end the effort to achieve this goal.
“As that essential process moves forward, it is up to the State legislature to act to protect the equal rights of every New Yorker and for the debate on how to ensure those rights to proceed without the rancor and divisiveness that too often surrounds this issue.”
However, for some reason, future Democratic Presidential hopeful, Joe Biden’s comments are not bigoted. Watch and listen to the VIDEO … you make the call.

“You cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts without an Indian accent.”
Nice Senator Biden. You are truly a man of the people. The sad part about it is this man knew he had a camera on him and thinks he said nothing wrong. Unbelievable. Senator Biden, these comments were really inappropriate and in poor taste.
Can anyone imagine if GWB or any Republican made such a comment? Censure and sensitivity training would be in order as well as a front page story in the New York Times. Michelle Malkin reminds us of Hillary Clinton’s bizarre joke about Gandhi and gas stations. What do they have against Indians?

Update: I wonder how Howard Dean feels about Georgia Top Court Reinstates Gay Marriage Bann? The question really should be, why does Howard Dean not respect the majority vote when the people have spoke and overwhelmingly supported an issue. Funny how Dean only praises the Court’s when they agree with him.
The Georgia Supreme Court, reversing a lower court judge’s ruling, decided unanimously that the ban did not violate the state’s single- subject rule for ballot measures. Superior Court Judge Constance Russell of Fulton County had ruled that it did.
Seventy-six percent of Georgia voters approved the ban when it was on the ballot in 2004
