"He Who Laughs Last........"

Democrats in Self-Destruct Mode XXXII

"Howie" Dean gets support from adolescent celebrities.

+ + + + +

Antiwar comedians raising campaign cash for Democrat Howard Dean last night blasted President Bush as a "piece of living, breathing s - - -" at an angry X-rated fund-raiser in New York.

"We have to get this piece of living, breathing s - - - out of the office," said comedian Judy Gold whose performance — like those of Janeane Garofalo and David Cross — was liberally larded with the F-word.

Aides said that Dean didn't authorize the X-rated attacks and that the Democratic front-runner found them so "offensive," he almost refused to come out and speak at the fund-raiser, one of eight New York events that raised close to $2 million yesterday.

The X-rated fund-raiser came just days after Democratic rival John Kerry used the F-word to attack Bush in Rolling Stone magazine.

Garofalo last night described the Medicare prescription-drug bill that Bush signed yesterday as the "'you can go-f- - - yourself, Grandma' bill."

Gold ridiculed Democrat Joseph Lieberman for being unable to campaign on Jewish holidays.

Comedian Kate Lloyd pointed to Michael Jackson, now facing new child sex charges, and said, "Frankly, I'm far more frightened of Condoleezza Rice" — Bush's national security adviser — and referred to Cheney's wife, Lynne, as "Lon Chaney," a star of horror flicks.

When Dean came out after the comics, he made a vague reference to "some language that was used — I think it's wrong."

Aides said that Dean didn't authorize the X-rated attacks and.... found them so "offensive," he almost refused to come out and speak at the fund-raiser....?

"Almost" is the key word in that sentence.
