Let me see if I have this straight:
Dean's dirty tricks
- Two Dean campaign workers, (former volunteers-amateurs?, but paid by Dean's Iowa organization, big bucks I sure), walked into Kerry campaign headquarters, pretended they were Iowa residents and asked questions about the Kerry campaign with the hope of seeing Kerry's telephone script?
- Months ago someone from the Dean campaign called an Iowa official to find out the residency requirements for participating in the Iowa caucuses. "Can one list a hotel as an address?"?
- Dean volunteers left Dean campaign leaflets on the cars at a Clark campaign event?
Do I have it correct? These are Dean's dirty tricks?
Well, damn, I think Dean should withdraw from the race.
Shame! Shame on Dean!
If this is best Dean can do he doesn't deserve the presidency! He's nothing but a not ready for prime time amatuer!
And to think I thought Dean was a professional.
TAKE NOTES PEOPLE!
