Dean’s victory dance
Howard Dean just needs to make sure nobody else votes in 2004 except Internet-connected Wisconsin residents.
If so, the former Vermont governor might find himself as the next President of the United States.
Recently, Dean won two polls that fell somewhere between “huh? what?” and “useless as tits on a bull” on the political spectrum. Less than two weeks ago, Dean won a Wisconsin straw poll among Democratic presidential candidates by collecting a whopping 203 votes to only 50 for runner-up Massachusetts Senator John Kerry.
That probably did not even make both eligible to run for Milwaukee dogcatcher.
On June 27, MoveOn.org announced Dean also took top honors in its online survey of the nine official Democratic presidential nominees, who unfortunately seem to be basically running for the honor of getting stomped by President George W. Bush in 2004, barring some drastic economic plunge or the appearance of a candidate with the balls to speak all-out against the Bush administration. Dean received 139,360 of 317,647 total votes cast during just over a 48-hour span.
That accounted for 43.87 percent of the vote and put him ahead of second-place finisher Dick Gephardt.
However, a candidate needed 50 percent to receive an endorsement from the organization.
