So what you're really trying to say is?

The man who should be every conservative's favorite Democrat made his latest Republican campaign contribution at a Baptist Church convention, somehow avoiding the scorn from Democrats for mixing politics with religion:
Race was a factor in the death toll from Hurricane Katrina, Howard Dean told members of the National Baptist Convention of America on Wednesday at the group's annual meeting.

Dean, chairman of the democratic party, made the comments to the Baptists' Political and Social Justice Commission. The Baptist Convention, with an estimated 3.5 million members, is one of the largest black religious groups in the country.

"We must ... come to terms with the ugly truth that skin color, age and economics played a deadly role in who survived and who did not," Dean said.
What are you trying to say, Dr. Dean? That black people can't swim? Did you mean to infer that only 77 year-olds can die in hurricanes? Are you saying that only rich people are impervious to drowning?
