Dean Heads to Texas

DEAN HEADS TO TEXAS….I have to hand it to Howard Dean: he really knows how to get in George Bush’s face. Last week he conducted a special fundraising blitz that raised half a million dollars for a “secret project,” and today he revealed what it’s for: he’s using the money to head straight into the heart of Bush country and air a bunch of TV ads in Texas.

I don’t know if this is smart or stupid, but I gotta admit it’s audacious. I have my doubts about the guy as a candidate, but he definitely puts on a good show.
