Don'tcha just love the Democrats?

Dean Misstates Party Platform to Evangelicals, Angers Gay Rights Activists
WASHINGTON — Democratic chairman Howard Dean mischaracterized his party's platform on gay rights in an interview courting evangelicals, then set the record straight Thursday when an advocacy group called him on it.
Dean told Christian Broadcasting Network News that the 2004 Democratic platform declares "marriage is between a man and a woman" — just one of the points he made in reaching out to religious conservatives who are largely hostile to the party.
But the platform does not define marriage that way, and his remarks prompted the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force to return a $5,000 donation from the Democratic National Committee.

I think it was Ann Coulter who said this, and it's so true. Democrats don't even know what they stand for anymore. Isn't it great?
