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.

  2. #BernieSanders on #HillaryClinton’s heels ahead of crucial #Indianaprimary polls

    Uncle Joe is Feelin' the Bern! VP #JoeBiden praised #BernieSanders for "thinking big" (Not small, like other candidates).

    Operatives working with the #Democratic party machine are licking their chops to get their slimy mittens on #BernieSanders email list.

    #BernieSanders supporter arrested because corporate whore #JimMcDermott superdelegate supports #HillaryClinton.

    @LaraMBrownPhD writes in the NYTimes that #BernieSanders Should Drop Out Now > Says Bernie has served his purpose. Clinton didn't drop out in 2008 until the last vote was cast. The #IRS should audit her.

    Most Americans agree with #BernieSanders on Israel-Palestinian conflict

    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.

    The former President of Mexico, Vicente Fox, a pro-business conservative, endorsed #Hillary#Clinton for President. He also praised Bill Clinton (the man who gave us #NAFTA)

    If #BernieSanders was paying trolls to make negative comments about Hillary, I'd be rich ;)

  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.
