Dean: Republicans are like ... Milosevic

Howard Dean, keeping the hate alive in Denver:

You see, the Republicans are very, very good at dividing people. You know, they’re always … you gotta be mad because this group is against that and that group doesn’t get that. That’s terrible for the country, but it’s a time-honored way to win elections, and people use it in all kinds of different countries … Slobodan Milosevic used it in Yugoslavia!

Howard Dean in January:

“I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for…”

Howard Dean in February:

“This is a struggle between good and evil and we’re the good.”

Now, after the identity-politics meltdown that the entire nation witnessed in the Democratic primaries this cycle, and with Dean’s own quotes as context, which party seems more obsessed with groupthink — Democrats or Republicans?  Which party set factions against each other more in 2008, all the way to the convention — Democrats or Republicans?  Which candidate launched multiple, unfounded smears of racism — Barack Obama or John McCain?

Poor Howard Dean.  In the end, all he has is hate.
