Like Cockroaches

Jodi Wilgoren has another article about Dean. Choicest quote (and the lead):
Howard Dean, who is increasingly giving his presidential candidacy an anti-Washington cast, cranked up his rhetoric on Tuesday, saying that if he won, members of Congress were "going to be scurrying for shelter, just like a giant flashlight on a bunch of cockroaches."
Teehee! Wilgoren manages to write another decent article with only a couple of backhanded jabs. Could be worse.

I love the tough colorful talk, but I worry that he underestimates Washington/political inertia. Congress isn't going to do sh|t just because he tells them to--especially if it's still controlled by the evil bloodsuckers...err...I mean the Republicans.

I want to hear how he will make them scurry like cockroaches...
