HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Man, sorry for that, but days like this are the ones that make life worth living. Real life is just too fucking ridiculous to make up. What am I talking about? Oh, only this:
Top Iowa Democrats threw their support for chairman of the Democratic National Committee to Howard Dean today, putting the one-time presidential candidate near the threshold of support needed to win.

Gov. Tom Vilsack and Lt. Gov. Sally Pederson, Iowa Democratic chairwoman, were among eight of Iowa's nine voting members of the Democratic National Committee to endorse the former Vermont governor.

Pederson said the key was Dean's demonstrated support for the Iowa caucuses, evidenced by his two-year campaign for the lead-off nominating contest last year.

The backing comes as support for Dean as chairman is nearing the majority of the DNC's 477 voting members. The election is Feb. 12 at DNC's annual winter meeting in Washington, D.C.

Joining Vilsack and Pederson were Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, State Treasurer Mike Fitzgerald, national committeewoman Sandy Opstvedt, national committeeman Ken Rains, state party Vice Chairman Rob Tully and Grinnell College student Grant Woodard, president of College Democrats of America.
This...really just couldn't be any funnier if the entire Daily Show staff cloned a thousand hybrid monkeys with part of their DNA and chained the hilarious hellspawn to typewriters for a million years. I'm sorry for those who weren't in Iowa, for whom this only has the whiff of "Huh. How 'bout that?" irony, but this is just amazing. Can we go back to my favorite part? Sure we can:
Pederson said the key was Dean's demonstrated support for the Iowa caucuses, evidenced by his two-year campaign for the lead-off nominating contest last year.
HAHAHAHAHAHA! Dean's candidacy was partially sunk because of his opposition to the caucuses - or at least, the media's fevered scandalmongering a week out from the caucuses over a tape - a tape, mind you that was four years old, widely available, known of - given them by Chris "Sleaziest Democrat this Side of Bob Toricelli" Lehane that showed Dean expressing real and principled opposition to the Iowa caucuses' first-in-the-nation status. And the man also says he's gonna, if not move them, at least add other primaries to the first date - but mainly, that the current system is deeply flawed.

And Vilsack? Whoo...whoo...this is just perfect.

Comments:
I believe the endorsed Dean because of his electability. It's surprising that Vilsak came out for Dean, I figured he'd have had his wife endorse Dean first. You know, to stay impartial and all.
 
I was wondering who was going to drop the 'E" word first.

honestly -- I had 5 bucks in my head said it was gonna be Leavy
