Dean also singled out a $45,000 payment of Legacy money that was made last year to science fiction writer Neil Gaiman for a four-hour speaking appearance. Dean said that Gaiman, "who I hate," was a "pencil-necked little weasel who stole $45,000 from the state of Minnesota."The Onion has a bit more information on what appears to be the tempest in the tea (Party) pot.
It's pathetic that the Tea Partiers have such a persecution complex when their irrational determination to find bias where none exists is responsible for the tone of remarks like Dean's. And it's even more pathetic for mental midgets like Dean to endorse the thoughtless pillorying carried out by the Republican Party's irrational base.
