DEAN SAID WHAT ON HARDBALL?--updated
I was just listening to the opening segment of Hardball as Matthews and Howard Dean were discussing Bush's pick for SCOTUS.
Dean was talking about her background, and I have no transcript, so I'll just put it together from memory. Dean went on to say that we know nothing about Miers. The work she did at the White House is very important since it will tell us about her views, but Bush isn't releasing the info.
He then said, they can't be playing hide-the-salami with these records. Dean then smiled a bit realizing he just said something highly inappropriate.
UPDATE: Here's the transcript (I can't believe they didn't edit it out).
MATTHEWS: Do you believe that the president can claim executive privilege?
DEAN: Well, certainly the president can claim executive privilege. But in the this case, I think with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, you can't play, you know, hide the salami, or whatever it's called. He's got to go out there and say something about this woman who's going to a 20 or 30-year appointment, a 20 or 30-year appointment to influence America. We deserve to know something about her.
Whatever it's called? He's kidding, right? Instead of hiding the salami, the DNC ought to think about hiding Howard Dean. Better yet, leave him right where he is; he's way too entertaining.
Here's the whole transcript.
