A patient is going to run the asylum.

The Vermont tween in an middle-aged body, Howard Dean, looks like he's in position to make Republican dreams come true for another 50 years:
State party leaders - including Massachusetts Democrats with the blessing of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy - are backing Howard Dean to chair the Democratic National Committee, giving him an edge to win the election in two weeks.

Johnston picked Dean over six other contenders, including former U.S. Reps. Martin Frost of Texas and Timothy J. Roemer of Indiana. Dean rival Wellington Webb, former mayor of Denver, dropped out and is now backing Dean.

The Association of State Democratic Chairs also endorsed Dean.
On the verge of losing a little of my buzz after Sunday's Iraqi vote, I've fallen face-first into the intoxicating potion of Republican hope distilled from the spirits of Democratic Cluelessness. What a great day.

For a guy who's two daily pills away from life in a straight-jacket to be the Democrat's best choice for DNC chair, my glee can't be contained. My future children will be guaranteed a life in a safer, more successful, less PC America, as we'll be enjoying 65-70 Republican Senators by the time they're borrowing my car keys. I can only cheer when the good doctor says things like this:
"I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for, but I admire their discipline and their organization," the failed presidential hopeful told the crowd at the Roosevelt Hotel, where he and six other candidates spoke at the final DNC forum before the Feb. 12 vote for chairman.

But Dean said the Democrats should not change their beliefs to be "Republican lite."

"We can talk about our faith, but we cannot change our faith," he said, echoing themes he sounded in his presidential bid. "We need to be people of conviction."
They say good things come in threes. Iraq elections, now this. I'm buying a lottery ticket. 10% of any proceeds are going to the "Howard Dean for DNC Chair" campaign. It'll be an investment in my kid's future.
