Former Governor Howard Dean: Joke of the Week

I slammed my empty beer bottle on the bar and screamed: “Moderate Democrats are just as slimy as any moderate Republican — they're all corporate whores.”

Former Governor Howard Dean slammed his fist on the bar in protest: “Screw you, I resent that!”

I asked him, “Are you a corporate whore?”

He replied, "I'm a lobbyist."

Howard Dean, who was once the Democratic governor of Senator Bernie Sanders's home state of Vermont, endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. Dean is also a regular "contributor" on the cable news channel MSNBC — which is owned by Comcast, who also supports Clinton.

In January 2009, Dean indicated he would enter the private sector after 30 years in politics after being snubbed for a position in the Obama administration — so he had decided to use the "revolving door" and became a lobbyist.

Howard Dean became a "Senior Strategic Advisor and Independent Consultant" for the Government Affairs office at the law firm McKenna, Long & Aldridge. The firm later merged with Dentons in June 2015 — a multinational law firm and the world’s largest law firm by number of lawyers.

Dean is a doctor, not a lawyer.

After dodging the draft, he graduated from Yale with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science in 1971. He briefly tried a career as a stockbroker before deciding on a career in medicine, completing pre-med classes at Columbia University. Dean received his medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in 1978 and began a medical residency at the University of Vermont. In 1981, he married fellow doctor Judith Steinberg, whom he met in medical school, and together they began a family medical practice in Shelburne, Vermont.

The members of the progressive group "Democracy for America" (a group that Howard Dean co-founded) overwhelmingly voted to endorse Bernie Sanders for President by a vote of 87.9% to 10.3% against Hillary Clinton.

Nowadays, every chance he gets, Howard Dean (a moderate Democrat and corporate whore) is on MSNBC trashing Senator Bernie Sanders — a progressive Independent and "Man of the People".

Shaun King at the New York Daily News on April 20, 2016: "So far, Bernie has won 15 states, with 19 contests to go. In 2004, Howard Dean won two states before melting down and dropping out. While he sounded like a populist, he was long considered a moderate in his own state and spends his time lobbying nowadays."

Maybe someone in that bar should have smashed that beer bottle over Howard Dean's head.

    Stopping the insidious, widespread fraud of Wall Street means breaking up big banks. And here is where #BernieSanders differs from #HillaryClinton in one major way: He plans to do it, she doesn’t.

  3. What the hell happened to Dean? He was the go-to political hope. He rebuilt the Democratic strategy. Then Rahm, Israel, DWS, Pelosi, etc. threw him into the plastic shredder and he turned from Harvey Dent into Two-Face.
