Retiring Deanophobia (Updated)

A few days ago I said Howard Dean is probably toast. Then I felt foolish. Who says? Me? The heck do I know? I donít think anyone predicted the primary race so far. The silent majority of the Democratic Party gave the media and the blogosphere the middle finger in Iowa.

However. If thereís anyone in America who worried more about Howard Dean than Jonathan Chait, I donít know who it is. Today he shut down his Diary of a Dean-o-phobe blog at The New Republic. That should tell us something.

My work here is done.
And good work it was.


UPDATE: William Swann at the Centrist Coalition reports that some of Dean's biggest supporters in the blogosphere are done with him, too.
