Time to Play ‘Stump Howard Dean’

Howard “Yeearrrgh!” Dean was on Fox News this morning with Chris Wallace discussing the Shirley Sherrod thing, and Dean reiterated simple truths such as the sun rises in the east, kids shouldn’t run with scissors and that Fox News is racist.

Wallace asked Dean if he was aware that the Sherrod video did not air on Fox News until after the Obama administration had already crapcanned Sherrod. Dean stumbled after the question because it looks like he temporarily forgot he wasn’t being interviewed by CNN, but the answer of course is irrelevant to Howard and the talking points he’s peddling.

Dean went on to say that the White House over-reacted because they were afraid Sherrod “was about to go on Glenn Beck.” Now there’s a non media-driven administration for you.

Gingrich scored with this: “If the Obama administration is this afraid of Fox News, how do they deal with the Iranians?”

It kind of makes you wonder what Ahmadinejad could have coerced the Obama administration into doing if he had a certain video (as “out of context” as it may be) and was threatening to leak it to Glenn Beck — but why get bogged down by the larger, more important picture when you’ve got Republicans to beat in November?

Allahpundit at Hot Air adds…

Another question per his insistence that what Fox did with the tape was “absolutely racist”: Is Dean suggesting that O’Reilly and Hannity wouldn’t have aired an embarrassing excerpt from a speech delivered by a white liberal? I recall Glenn Beck having a field day with that clip of the very white Anita Dunn talking about Mao. The liberal line on Fox, I thought, is that they’ll use any weapon to hand to attack the left and Obama, not just lefty minorities. This one’s more effective, I guess, however true or untrue it may be.
