if the hat fits... http://www.tucsoncitizen.com/breaking/8_18_03dean_howard.html
ARTHUR H. ROTSTEIN - The Associated Press
TUCSON, Ariz. — Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean removed his necktie in the summer heat and offered a blistering attack on President Bush at a rally here Monday.
Dean, a former Vermont governor, told an estimated 500 supporters that Bush's economic and foreign policies have been failures sufficient to earn him a bus ride back to Crawford, Texas.
He said Bush talks tough on defense, but has fallen short in carry-through, failing to buy the enriched uranium left over from the former Soviet Union's weapons program, or to fund inspection of 90 percent of cargo containers entering this country every day.
"You know what I say about this president's position on defense? Just like they say in Texas, 'He's all hat and no cattle"' said Dean in his second Tucson appearance this summer.

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
