Howard Dean - Liar or Homophobe

This is just plain funny.
Democratic Party Chair Howard Dean has contradicted his party's platform and infuriated gay rights advocates by saying the party's platform states "marriage is between a man and a woman."

Democratic Party Chair Howard Dean, appearing on the Christian Broadcasting Network, erroneously stated that the party's 2004 platform says 'marriage is between a man and a woman.' "The Democratic Party platform from 2004 says marriage is between a man and a woman," Dean said May 10 during a "700 Club" program hosted by conservative Christian leader Pat Robertson on his Christian Broadcasting Network.

That statement contradicts the Democratic National Committee's official stance, which was adopted in 2004.

"We support full inclusion of gay and lesbian families in the life of our nation and seek equal responsibilities, benefits, and protections for these families," the platform says.
If a Republican makes a statement about marriage being between a man and a woman they are instantly branded a homophobe. Will Dean be similarly accused? Not likely. Most Dems will rightly believe he was attempting to fool viewers of that show (if there are any) into thinking Dems aren't as goofy as most of us think they are on social issues. It is called pandering.
