"While I privately wonder about Dean, it is easier to say he is 'tempermentally unsuited' to be president. That allegation is easier to prove and doesn't make us sound like wild-eyed fanatics."

Why does stating the obvious "make us sound like wild-eyed fanatics"??

Isn't it a fact of the matter the majority of this year's Democratic Party candidates for President can be considered certifiable loons?

I submit the following mental patients: Dean, Kucinich, Sharpton, and Kerry.

While I privately agree that Dean and some of the rest (certainly Kucinich) are nutty as fruitcakes, how one presents the message to the public is very important.

To the average voter, this writer is saying that a medical doctor, former governor of Vermont, and a presidential candidate is clinically insane.

First of all, he is not insane. He is hot-tempered, arrogant, a liar, and willing to ditch any previously held position in order to get the nomination. None of these characterists, nor all of them together, make him insane. It makes him tempermentally unsuited for the office.

Secondly, accusations such as this one sound so ridiculous to the general public that they begin to ignore anything substantive coming from our side. Please remember how the conservatives worries about Clinton's contacts with China were ignored by the public who had come to believe that everything Clinton did was being attacked by the right.

This type of diatribe is counterproductive.
