The unstoppable Democrats

Howard Dean gave a speech outlining the Democrats' plans for the future :

he Democrats have a better idea. First we will conclude the negotiations with the Chinese and the North Koreans to disarm North Korea. Secondly, under no circumstances will a Democratic Administration ever allow Iran to become a nuclear power. Three, we will kill or capture Osama bin Laden and four, the authority and the control of the ports of the United States must be retained by American companies.

See how easy that is? It's only because Bushitler is such a dunce that these things haven't already been accomplished already. Beware, Republicans, Dean has got a FOUR POINT PLAN.

I have a four point plan too. 1) Win the lotto. 2) Buy and Island. 3) Implement plan for world Peace. 4) Take a nap.

But, Dean has still more plans:

"So our strategy is very simple- we want to make it clear to the American people what the Republicans are about and what their discrepancies are between what they say and what they do. We also want to make sure the American people understand what we are going to do differently.

"One- we will pass ethics legislation within the first 100 days of our re-ascension to power, and eliminate the scandals and the corruption that the Republicans have brought to power. We want honest and open government in America again.

"Two- we want a strong national defense which begins with telling the truth to our citizens and our soldiers and our allies before we send troops abroad.

"Three- we want American jobs that will stay in America by creating a new energy independence industry, creating thousands of manufacturing jobs and construction jobs to retrofit our homes and businesses.

"Four- we want a health care system which works for everyone, just like 36 other countries in the world have.

"And five- we want a strong public education system so we can have opportunity and optimism back in America again. . ."

Yes, Dean, your strategy is simple. Some might called it ... stupid. I might be that someone. As Ace pointed out, Dean's solutions are actually goals. Kinda like my four-point plan to happiness above. The tricky part, Dean, is making your goals something you can actually achieve. For that you actually need a plan.

What worries me is that there might actually be Democrats out there who are impressed by Dean's words.

Of course, Jeff has something to say about this as well.
