DOWDIFICATION OF DEAN’S DISCOURSE

Andrew Cline cites a NYT story indicating Howard Dean is following Maureen Dowd’s lead:

“I sometimes speak elliptically, so I leave out pieces that seem to me to be obvious but aren’t obvious to the people who haven’t heard me talk about whatever the subject before…There’s been more than one time when I’ve said something, and sort of the middle of what I’ve said is not said but thought, and therefore assumed to be understood, which is a ridiculous assumption on my part, but sometimes gets me in trouble.”

Bush. Yada yada yada. Hitler.

Another one for the Duck Hunt.
