    I like to grab the text version of the Dean / Blitzer interview and post it to blogs that reference the rovian "directed to democrats" bullshit as I did on the Howell WAPO blog that was shut down. It seems to spark thoughts. I use it every chance I get.

    hate to cut and paste but -

    BLITZER: Should Democrats who took money from Jack Abramoff, who has now pleaded guilty to bribery charges, among other charges, a Republican lobbyist in Washington, should the Democrat who took money from him give that money to charity or give it back?
    DEAN: There are no Democrats who took money from Jack Abramoff, not one, not one single Democrat. Every person named in this scandal is a Republican. Every person under investigation is a Republican. Every person indicted is a Republican. This is a Republican finance scandal. There is no evidence that Jack Abramoff ever gave any Democrat any money. And we've looked through all of those FEC reports to make sure that's true.
    BLITZER: But through various Abramoff-related organizations and outfits, a bunch of Democrats did take money that presumably originated with Jack Abramoff.
    DEAN: That's not true either. There's no evidence for that either. There is no evidence...
    BLITZER: What about Senator Byron Dorgan?
    DEAN: Senator Byron Dorgan and some others took money from Indian tribes. They're not agents of Jack Abramoff. There's no evidence that I've seen that Jack Abramoff directed any contributions to Democrats. I know the Republican National Committee would like to get the Democrats involved in this. They're scared. They should be scared. They haven't told the truth. They have misled the American people. And now it appears they're stealing from Indian tribes. The Democrats are not involved in this.
    BLITZER: Unfortunately Mr. Chairman, we got to leave it right there.

    If they hate us for our freedom, they must really love us now!
