File under "news of the weird"

Oscar de la Renta rants that he's shocked (*shocked, I tell you*) that Hilary wore black to the inauguration. Honey, if you'd gained as much weight as she has, you'd wear black, too.

Michael Jackson's fans reveal that some of them are every bit as weird (OK, read "disturbed") as he is.

Howard Dean is about to become chairman of the DNC (this just gets weirder and weirder) ...

Yeah, you go ahead and think Howard Dean was weird. They thought Ronald Reagan (at least in 1976) and Barry Goldwater were weird back in the day, but in retrospect, the current Republican revival owes itself to those mavericks. Dean is no Reagan, but he might be a Goldwater. In any event, what do the Dems have to lose? It's not like the Daschles, Liebermans, Gores, and Kerrys of the Democratic Party are lighting any fires amongst its constituency.

Let's see. In wartime, a frightened flag-waving electorate reluctantly re-elects Dubya because as righty as he is, he's OUR righty, and oddly comfortable. The Left is OUT. Running farher to the left is not the answer. Me and the other three or four conservative Democrats that are still left, will finally be squoze out of the foemr Big Tent of the party if Dean takes the reins. And I'll be an ineffective Indy before I'll ever jine up with the party of Lincoln! Both extremes suck!

At least I hear he's one hell of a fundraiser. I for one wanted to see Carville's solution -- he was a lone voice in the wilderness about making the Dems more moderate.

If Dean is what is necessary for Bob Schrum to retire to his Georgetown estate, it needs to be done. Dean may not be the answer, but the established Democratic political consultants need to head for the door. All they know how to do is to line their pockets and lose.
