Howard Dean: Republican party is the Wasp party.


Of course Howie didn’t use that word…but hey..if the shoe fits. From the Carpetbagger:

The DNC has been sending around the full context of the exchange:

NPR: Another bit of news that caught our eyes this week, the U.S. Census Department released a report projecting that whites will become a minority in the US by the year 2042, that’s about 8 years earlier than expected. How do you think it would affect your approach to building the Democratic Party? You famously declared that Democrats should pursue voters who had confederate flags in their cars, meaning that Democrats should continue to court culturally conservative southern whites. Do these new numbers suggest that perhaps that strategy doesn’t really make sense?

Dean: I think we should court all voters and we haven’t courted Southern conservative working class folks and we need to do that. But you know our Party has been a no majority party for a long time. The fact is that the Democratic Party is made up of lots of different people and we’re all minorities in our party. That’s the way it’s been for a long, long time. We’re the party of opportunity. The demographic trends favor the Democrats because we are an inclusive, accepting party. And if you look at folks of color, even women, they’re more successful in the Democratic Party than they are in the white, excuse me, than in the Republican Party because we just give more opportunity to folks who are hardworking people who are immigrants and come from members of minority groups.

I doubt Dean deliberately was calling the GOP the “White Party.” If that was his goal, this was a rather clumsy way of doing it.

Frankly, I could give a shit people. Come on, its not a secret and the more the Dems hammer them on that point, the better off they will be.

Do I want our own 527’s banging the bejesus out of the neocons? You betcha! You don’t level the playing field with the neo’s unless you get down with the truth as bluntly as possible. No lies…just some statistics about the actual percentage of minorities, including women that are doing well (and not in jail) on the Republican side of the aisle.

I played just like the big boys when I was still in the workforce. You have to or you don’t make it. I smiled when they called me a bitch, and don’t you know…it pissed them the fuck off even more.

If your not pissing off the other side, you aren’t hitting them hard enough. Get them to go off point and spend their time and money on blustery bullshit arguments they really can’t win but they can whine about.
