God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

So good ol' Howard the Duck Dean didn't have the feathers to face Republican Party Chairman Ken Mehlman on Meet the Press this morning. Wonder why? Could it be a lack of a coherent platform? Declining donations under his tenure? Bad temper?

After last weeks election victories, one would think that the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee would be chomping at the bit to go up against his RNC counterpart. Maybe Duck Dean realizes the elections weren't so much "victories" as "not losses."

From Drudge:
Moments before taping was to begin with host Tim Russert, Mehlman asked Dean outside the NBC studio’s green room: “There’s still time for us to go on together Governor.” Dean declined with a shrug of his shoulders and an uncomfortable cackle and then proceeded to walk away into the green room.

Mehlman brought up Dean’s unwillingness to appear alongside him during the show: “I was hoping that Chairman Dean would be on sitting next to me this morning. Maybe we can do that on a future program. Look, he's somebody I've enjoyed getting to know. We meet in a lot of green rooms….”

Former Dem Party Chair Terry McAuliffe participated in regular head-to-head appearances with his Republican counterparts during his tenure from ‘01 to ‘05. McAuliffe went head-to-head with Republican chairmen at least five times on MEET THE PRESS alone, going up against past GOP chairs Ed Gillespie (twice), Marc Racicot (twice) and Jim Gilmore (once).
There's going to be hell to pay for this one Duck Dean.

I think he feels he is too good to do so. No doubt he is an egomaniac. Plus he cant back up his lies
