Dean and the Domestic Axis of Evil

Howard Dean recently characterized the Democrats' domestic political agenda as a battle between "good and evil." (HT: Hugh via Polipundit and Kathryn Jean Lopez). Oh. In case there was any doubt where Dean was going with this, he added that the Democrats are the "good."

On abortion, Dean said:

"The issue is not abortion," Dean told the closed-door fund-raiser. "The issue is whether women can make up their own mind instead of some right-wing pastor, some right-wing politician telling them what to do."
"Moderate Republicans can't stand these people (conservatives), because they're intolerant. They don't think tolerance is a virtue," Dean said, adding: "I'm not going to have these right-wingers throw away our right to be tolerant."
Okay all you "right wing" pastors who encourage your flocks to stand for life - the Democrats have you in their cross-hairs. You are now a member of their domestic Axis of Evil.

As many of my readers know, I am not the archetype conservative. I'm fairly "liberal" when it comes to many Democratic bread and butter socio-economic policy issues. But in the case of pastors who support life, the leader of the Democratic Party has called evil what is obviously good. Thanks Howard Dean and the Democrats who elected him for making my political party preference clear.

In case you missed it, the key sentiment Howard Dean expressed in that article was "I hate Republicans and everything they stand for." When I mentioned the need for anger in a recent post, this is not what I had in mind. [Read More]

Remember, Dean exists (i) to motivate the radical Democratic base and (ii) to make Hillary Clinton look moderate. With remarks like these, he serves both purposes. What Republicans need to do is start asking Hillary if she agrees with the leader of her party. Put her on the spot and don't let up until she answers.

Were it not for blogs, Howard Dean would get a free pass on this.

People still rail on Bush over the "axis of evil" remarks. Do you suppose any of them will mention this?

I am a woman and I am a Pastor, who happens to be a conservative. I wonder how I fit into Dean's paradigm of female control.

Don't get caught in his musings! Women decide for themselves what they think, pastors can only give insight and enlightenment. It isn't the pastor who punches the chad for a woman on election day.
