Cheney on Howard Dean:

''I've never been able to understand his appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I've never met anybody who does. He's never won anything, as best I can tell,'' Cheney said in an interview on Fox News Channel's ''Hannity & Colmes.''

Dean on Cheney:

''But we gotta be there and fight in order to do it. And believe me, we are going to fight back. I don't care if **** Cheney likes my mother or not. We are going to fight back,'' Dean said to cheers and applause. ''I think it's great that **** Cheney went after me, to be honest. At least they notice there's a Democratic Party that's not going to put up with this stuff any more. So there's a lot we're gonna do.''

Did these guys hone their skills at Cnet SE!

... notice how Dean misinterpreted Cheney's comments to imply that he has attacked his Mother. Cheney did nothing of the sort. Sounds familiar.

From Dean's bio at the DNC website:
He began his political career in the early 1980's as the Chittenden County (Vermont) Democratic Party chair. In 1983, Dean was elected to the Vermont House of Representatives. He was then elected lieutenant governor in 1986 and was re-elected in 1988 and 1990. He became Vermont's governor upon the death of Governor Richard A. Snelling on August 14, 1991.

Elected to a full term in November 1992, Governor Dean was re-elected four more times....


So much for never having won anything. But maybe this is just another example of Cheney's faulty memory, along with his inability to recall having met John Edwards on several occasions.

... he was referring to him winning anything in the last Presidential election (not one primary) or on the national level (except DNC chair).

Not recalling meeting John Edwards isn't exactly difficult to imagine Josh. In fact, remind me? Who was John Edwards again? LOL

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
