Well, this isn't surprising...

Howard Dean: Indict Dick Cheney

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean is urging Leakgate Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald to indict Vice President Dick Cheney if he had anything to do with the decision of his chief of staff, Lewis Libby, to leak CIA employee Valerie Plame's identity to the media.

"I do think there needs to be more investigation of the vice president's office," Dean told the Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes" Monday night.

"One of the things established by the special prosecutor in the [Libby] indictment is that Vice President Cheney was the source of 'Scooter' Libby's knowledge about who the CIA agent was," Dean said in an interview with Alan Colmes.

"And the question is, did the vice president instruct 'Scooter' Libby to reveal that name?"

"If he did," insisted Dean, then "the vice president is probably criminally negligent and he ought to be indicted as well."

The top Democrat predicted that "we're going to find that out - because Fitzgerald has a reputation for being ruthless, relentless and totally non-political."

Now, clearly Dean is unhinged... But, given some of the other whackier things he's said ("interesting theory is that Bush knew about 9/11 beforehand", etc), I'm not all that surprised. And, as Brian called it last week, the Left isn't satisfied with their Scooter indictments and wants Bush and Cheney to be frogmarched from the White House. While they have sympathizers in the Media who will do their best to make that happen, the prosecutor won't be swayed by political pressure.

It's great that the darling of the Kossacks and DUers is now heading up the Democratic Party, as it just ensures that their idiocy will be amplified as each campaign season approaches.
