Really, these people are amazing:
For the record, I don’t think that Howard Dean has any clue whatsoever concerning the degree to which socialism has failed to bring about prosperity. I don’t think he has any clue whatsoever concerning the degree to which capitalism has succeeded in bringing about prosperity. I think he has some stock talking points, and goes through them in speeches. I am sure he believes what he says, but there is no possible way that one can call his opinion an informed one.
This gives me some hope that ridiculous comments like Dean’s simply will not be listened to. But it is utterly shocking that a onetime credible Presidential candidate, and a onetime chairman of the Democratic National Committee shows such a poor grasp of economics and history.
