THERE WERE NO ‘YEEAARGH’S IN BURLINGTON LAST NIGHT

Howard Dean Abandons His Bid for the White House.

Didn’t I tell ya Wisconsin is a motherfucker?

But the best thing about how this ends is that Dean retains his own organization within the Democratic Party, ostensibly a way to keep the Deaniacs from bolting to, say, Ralph Nader or another third-party insurgency. Of course it’s a way to keep the Dean empire alive, too. But perhaps it even gives a place for Kucinich and Sharpton voters to go?

ALT-HISTORY MOMENT: If the Rainbow had pushed for something similar in ’88 after Jesse Jackson’s defeat–instead of, as the story goes, dumping all their computer records in someone’s dumpster–think where we would be today. Sigh.
