howard dean: blond?

"I'm sure that an American company would bid on the ports if this [port management] was restricted to American companies...." --DNC Chairman Howard Dean, responding to Alan Colmes' comment that no American companies had bid on the ports deal.

which to me seems obvious to the point of stupidity. that's like saying "i bet men would buy more chocolate than women if it was restricted to men." or, in a situation i'm sure dean would like, "i bet democrats would win more elections if voting was restricted to democrats."
