A rootin' tootin' good time!

That's what Howie Dean has been having in California. When he wasn't busy telling folks what a great political issue Terri Schiavo's starvation death is, he was complaining about big money political donors - Republican ones:
Even though the biggest money donors in the last election cycle were Democrats, DNC chairman Howard Dean complained this week that Republicans have been "utterly corrupted" by the process.

"The reason we need you to give money is because the political process on both sides - but particularly on the Republican side - has been utterly corrupted by people who give huge amounts of money from large corporations," Dean told a high school audience in Vancouver, Ore.
Howie enjoys the big lie, apparently. For years, the Republicans have been the party of the small, individual, hard money donor. As for the Donks:
The top Democrat made no mention of donors like George Soros or Peter Lewis, who spent upwards of $50 million between them to try to defeat George Bush in last year's presidential election.
And made a candidate out of Howie, who had negligible public support as the primaries demonstrated so clearly. Hmm, maybe that's why he's trying to change the subject!
