The McCain solution
Howard Dean has occasionally been compared to John McCain, but in one way, they are polar opposites. While the media is generally hostile and unfair to Dean, framing practically everything he says, no matter how reasonable, as a gaffe, Senator McCain continues to enjoy a free pass, and is never held accountable for anything he says, no matter how insipid.
For example, when asked his view on the controversy over whether to include so-called 'Intelligent Design' in school curricula, his response was: "Let the student decide."
Let the student decide. Great idea. Just brilliant.
I suppose this is the kind of boldness that makes McCain a media darling.
No word on whether McCain wants to "let the student decide" what the laws of physics are.
