"I keep hearing people say that Howard Dean should be more careful not to say things that the Republicans can twist around and make into something that sounds bad...I call this the 'being afraid that Rush Limbaugh is going to say something bad about them' syndrome.
I have some news. Sit down. Prepare yourself. Take a breath. Here it comes," writes Dave Johnson: "Rush Limbaugh is going to say something bad about you. Republicans are going to twist whatever you say. It doesn't matter what it is that you actually say. As much as Howard Dean is able to advance a narrative that the Republican Party is a party of white male Christians, it forces Hispanics, women, blacks and Jews to return to the Democrats...why do you THINK the Republicans are trying to get him to stop saying that?"
