You read it here first

Heh heh. This stuff writes itself.

Three days ago, while satirizing Howard Dean's attempt to win over evangelicals with clever (?) rhetoric, I depicted the Dems saying:

"What we really need is for DNC confabs to be held behind closed doors, otherwise those rubes might not buy it."

Well, it isn't exactly a "Democratic confab", but as if on cue:

"Howard Dean, the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee, requested a media blackout of a debate with top Pentagon adviser Richard Perle, then quickly changed his mind Wednesday after news agencies complained." --Newsday (via Drudge)

It probably wouldn't help for the new DNC chairman to remind the public what a dove he is, as he tries to reclaim a moderate image for the party fronted by Kennedy, Pelosi and Kerry.
