Dean's truth bending in Utah

Howard Dean came to Utah this weekend and spoke at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. According to Dean "even in Utah, most people agree with Democrats." Wow, I guess a lot has changed in Utah since Bush won 72% of the vote just last November. Or perhaps those who disagree with Dean aren't actually considered "people." In any case a more untruthful comment was this one "We have a Republican appointed supreme court that decided they can take your house and put a Sheraton Hotel in there." Was it the Republican appointees who made that decision? Of course he doesn't say that the four justices who dissented in the eminent domain case (Rehnquist, Scalia, Thomas and O'Connor) were all appointed by a Republican president.
