Dean tells bold faced lies, for real.

Dean is at it again, this time claiming that it was Bush and the conservatives behind the SCOTUS decision to allow the use of eminent domain in taking property from one private party and giving it to a second private owner in the Kelo case.

"The president and his right-wing Supreme Court think it is 'okay' to have the government take your house if they feel like putting a hotel where your house is,"

If Dean is upset with the ruling I with him but it was the liberal justices that voted against the small guy and not the evil conservatives. There are only a few options open to why Dean would be making such a slanderous lie; one is that he is ignorant of which justices votes which way, two is that he knows he’s lying but thinks that Americans are too dumb to be able to find the truth on their own. Either option bodes ill for the future of the Democratic party.

I will never ever ever understand American politics.

Actually, this seems to be a widely used tactic amongst liberals, especially in regards to this case. Somehow, they've gotten the idea that just because the majority of the justices were appointed by Republican presidents, this automatically makes the Supreme Court ultra-conservative. Using this "logic", they conclude that any and all rulings coming out of this court that bear any negative consequences must be the property of the conservatives, not the liberals. Unfortunately, the ignore the fact that many of the justices didn't exactly turn out as it was thought they would (Kennedy and Souter are two big examples of this). It is a not-so-clever attempt to confuse people. If you repeat the statement often enough, people will stop questioning it and believe it to be fact.
