"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

"Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean..."

posted by Trammell at Wednesday, September 10, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Well, the news today is all "Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean..." and that 's not all that's "Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean..."

Today's Deanesbury here is Dean, Dean, Dean!

And this, from The New York Times:
The dominance that Dr. Dean has enjoyed, and the corresponding exasperation that has caused his rivals, was clear even before the candidates sat down in Baltimore tonight. Senator Kerry was talking to reporters before the debate here, where he was repeatedly questioned about Dr. Dean's standing in the race and things that he had said.

After Mr. Kerry finished his news conference and began walking away with an aide, David Wade, a live microphone picked him up muttering with evident annoyance: "Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean."
And a new line of t-shirts, rugbies, thongs, baby-bibs mugs and mousepads over at Cafe Shops:

Now before ya'll yell at me, remember: this site is about all things Dean. I don't make this stuff up -- I just report it back to a Dean Nation. And let's face it, this stuff is just "Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean, Dean!"

About Nation-Building

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.
