Could it be?

So tell me, is this a joke, or a hoax put out by the Dean people? Can it possibly be for real?

That was my first reaction too — black ops by the Rove people, or something.

Although I’m not able to rule that out, I’m inclined to take it seriously. The reality is that Dean is far from the Stalinist monster he is so often described as; he had bipartisan support in Vermont, and apart from the civil-unions thing, his positions on most issues are thoroughly mainstream. Or at least they would have been 25 or 30 years ago, before the GOP succeeded in dragging the “center” to a spot formerly occupied by Richard Nixon.
