Semi-News: Dean Denounces Timing of Rehnquist's Death
AZCONSERVATIVE ^ | August 9, 2005 | John Semmens

Posted on 09/09/2005 11:50:02 AM PDT by John Semmens

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean complained that the timing of Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist’s death was “highly suspicious.”

“Last year, Reagan conveniently died just in time to take attention away from Bush’s failed Iraq War and boost Bush’s chances for reelection,” said Dean. “Now, in the midst of Bush’s failure to prevent the extermination of downtrodden, minority New Orleans’ hurricane victims, Justice Rehnquist conveniently dies. Am I the only one who sees a pattern here?”

Dean charged that presidential advisor Karl Rove was masterminding these strategically timed deaths of conservative icons. “Not only do these deaths distract Americans from Bush’s blunders, they also serve as a cover for Rove’s nefarious scheme to suppress Democratic voter turnout in next year’s Congressional elections by evacuating New Orleans hurricane victims to other states,” claimed Dean.

Dean demanded that the Democratic Party be authorized to cast absentee ballots on behalf of the evacuated hurricane victims. “These dispersed people are mostly poor and uneducated,” said Dean. “Many are on welfare. Others are driven to a life of crime. These are the people the Democratic Party represents. Who could object to us casting their ballots for them during this time of turmoil?”

Dean said he will be working with key members of Congress to draft enabling legislation.

Yup... Mr. Chairman, I couldn't have said it better myself.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is just satire, people! But, notice how it wouldn't shock any of us if Dean really did say this stuff.

The Mexican government estimates that 145,000 Mexicans illegally residing in New Orleans and surrounding areas may have been displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Mexico's consul general, Jorge Guajardo, said that his government stands ready to send replacements.

Bwaaaaaahahahahahaha!!!!!

Oh fooey! I was hoping he'd actually been insane enough to say it. It wouldn't be much more extreme than what he DOES say on a daily basis.

You know...it would be very funny if the followers of Dean did not take it seriously. Have you ever been to the "Democracy for America Website?" There are people there who believe such hogwash. Hell, there are a whole bunch of people there who believe that 9/11 was faked (the buildings were brought down by demo charges) or it was a conspiracy of the US Government. (All of the people on those planes, well, they are being kept hidden of course in Area 51.)

What the he!! He's really going over the edge. Did we kill Rehnquist or did he die of cancer. How inconvenient for the Deans of the democrat party. I thank God for Mr. Dean though. It's better for us that he be allowed to spew his nonsense. Good grief.

Well, Mike Maroooon wrote a letter that actually blamed Bush for causing the hurricane.

This conspiracy is at least physically possible so I believed that Dean would say it.


It's getting hard to tell what is satire these days.

Actually,m I liked the second item even more: "Senator Kennedy Offers to Plug at Least One Hole in the New Orleans Levee"

"President Bush praised Senator Kennedy’s decision. “I think it’s mighty big of him to offer so much for the good of the country,” said Bush. “There aren’t many who could fill such a large role in this disaster.”"

The only problem, of course, would be in finding an aircraft stout enough to lift that much "dead" weight.......

Is this for real? Please tell me it's satire, better yet, please tell me it's real because I think this will definitely turn off a few million democrat voters.

The Satires on the RatBlamers are in full gear.. and to be honest they are getting easier to write since all one has to do is read what they actually say and do.. oh maybe just stretch a hair but thats all. ;-D

Sometimes you just can't tell. Remember what they said about the capture of Saddam Hussein.

Gaurentee 8 out of 10 dems would read that story and agree with it . Very sad the satire and reality are close cousins when it comes to the Dems . It would be nice to circulate this story and let them run with it awhile.Good for a laugh and very telling as well.

Man, if those documents ever see the light of day, we'll have to whack Jimmy Carter just to cause a distraction.

Great tagline, btw. I heard Ken Blackwell speak last night at the Lakewood Republican Organziation, he is an amazing candidate.
