Dean's dirty mind.

Howard Dean was on Hardball talking about the Miers nomination. He was fumbling a bit for a statement that would illustrate the behind-the-scenes shenanigans involved in the selection. Maybe he was going for blind man's bluff? Hide and seek? I don't know. But chances are he wasn't grasping for what actually came out:

"Well, certainly the president can claim executive privilege. But in the this case, I think with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, you can't play, you know, hide the salami, or whatever it's called."

From the audio, it sounds like he realized what he had just said immediately afterward. But I'd love to see the video. Hilarious. This really made my day.
