... he held his ground under some tough and warranted questioning by Tim Russert.
But, there was one point the Governor so eloquently made, that had the pajama-clad TCF shouting and shaking his head in agreement, now the motto I blog by:
"I have an enormous amount of respect for people who have different opinions, but they have to defend their opinions. You can't just say, "I want to privatize Social Security because I want to privatize Social Security." You have to really show me why you want to do what you want to do. And if you can defend your ideas, I'll respect those ideas."

Will You Swear The New Lefty Blogger's Oath?
From ThatColoredFellasWeblog regarding Howard Dean's recent appearance on Meet the Press:
TBL has had some interesting visits lately from illiberal visitors who have commented on earlier posts, sometimes with what seems to me as a lack of intellectual rigor. Though these visitors may not have the same respect for Governor Dean that I do, I would ask them to take the Governor's words to heart when commenting here. I'll try to do the same when posting any entries or comments. Keep in mind, as others have pointed out, that "because God says so" is not a logical argument (outside of Saudi Arabia).
