Well, isn’t this rich? Howard Dean is scolding the Maryland state Democratic Party for being too..white:
Saying Maryland Democratic leaders must do more to encourage black candidates so “we do not have another Michael Steele problem,” Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean on Thursday criticized the state party’s lack of diversity on its recent winning tickets.
Speaking at a breakfast meeting in Washington, Dean expressed concern about Steele, Maryland’s black, Republican lieutenant governor, who was defeated in his quest to fill a vacated Senate seat in Tuesday’s election.
“I just think we have got to do a better job in Maryland four years from now about diversity on the ticket,” Dean said.
Flashback Feb. 2005:
During a meeting Friday with the Democratic black caucus, Dean praised black Democrats for their work for the party, then questioned Republicans’ ability to rally support from minorities.
“You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room?,” Dean asked to laughter. “Only if they had the hotel staff in here.”
