DNC CHAIRMAN HOWARD DEAN REFUSES TO APPEAR ON SET WITH RNC CHAIR DURING TOMORROW 'MEET THE PRESS', SOURCES TELL DRUDGE... DEAN ONLY AGREED TO BACK-TO-BACK INTERVIEWS ON NBC WITH RIVAL... DEVELOPING...
Here's what happened: Howie got mad when Mehlman told Russert he wouldn't debate anyone who should have his head hooked up to jumper cables.
Boy, oh BOY...Lee Atwater could make this crowd whimper in their boots...I don't see anyone in the GOP these days that comes close.
Lets hope Dean goes on 1st at least.
CHICKEN LITTLE AT NBC: DEAN DUCKS APPEARANCE WITH REPUBLICAN

Dem Chair Dean Ducks Last Second Joint MEET THE PRESS Appearance With GOP Chair Mehlman
The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from exclusive sources that Democrat Party Chair Howard Dean turned down Republican Party Chair Ken Mehlmans last minute offer to appear together on NBCs MEET THE PRESS this morning.
Moments before taping was to begin with host Tim Russert, production sources claim, Mehlman asked Dean outside the NBC studios green room: Theres still time for us to go on together Governor. Dean declined with a shrug of his shoulders and an uncomfortable cackle and then proceeded to walk away into the green room.
DRUDGE has learned MEET THE PRESS producers have been working to get a head to head Dean/Mehlman appearance on the program since Dean was named chair back in February. Dean and his handlers have repeatedly turned down the request. The former Vermont governor only agreed to do this weeks program if they appeared in back-to-back interviews.
Dean, avoiding a Muskie-moment I presume.
I'm not surprised. I had to sit next to a fat liberal from Santa Monica who is in the film business on a flight to LA last week. They do not deal well with reasoned argument and fact.
Having the host and him against one Republican isn't enough I suppose.
Yeah, even when the host is a lover of lefties as Russert is.
Dean knows his days are numbered. He has inflamed the Democrat Street and he is going to get burned by it.
Yeah, but we want Crazy Howard to stay on as chairman. He does so much -- for our side. Maybe we could send him letters of support
