This just in. . . .

"Did she really say John Dean?"

No, that was a lapsus digitorum. She really said "Howard".

A natural mistake for me to make under the circumstances. I have found that you can annoy countless numbers of political activists by claiming that you would never vote for Dean because of the lack of character he demonstrated in betraying Richard Nixon back in the '70s. This leads to wonderful surrealistic explanations of Watergate and which one is Howard and which one is John and why Howard would never betray anyone. I recommend this to anyone. It's great fun leading the political enthusiast down the garden path and into the uncharted dialectical wilderness.
