Howard the Duck knows Black people, at least he says he does:
Black voters are upset with the Democratic Party for coming around just weeks before elections seeking their votes, party chairman Howard Dean said Tuesday in an interview with The Associated Press.
Taking black voters for granted is a long-standing problem for the party that dates to the 1960s, said Dean, who promised changes in strategy even as he cited diversity at the top of the Democratic National Committee.
“African-Americans are annoyed with the Democratic Party because we ask them for their votes four weeks before the election instead of being in the community now and that’s a mistake I’m trying to fix,” he said. “There’s a new generation of African-American leaders and a new generation of African-Americans. We can’t go out and say could you vote for us because we were so helpful during the civil rights era.”
Keep in mind this is the same Dean that angered many blacks when he said he wanted “to be the candidate for the guys with Confederate flags on their pickup trucks.” He was also a Governor of a State, Vermont, with less than 1% Black population and while in office didn’t appoint any Black members to the Cabinet.
Somehow I don’t believe this pander party Dean is attempting will go over very big. I also suspect his next trick will be to turn his limo over the MTV’s “Pimp my Ride.”
