Howard's Son Paul Arrested

The big news today is that Howard Dean’s 17-year old son, Paul, was arrested last night, at 4 AM, outside a country club, where four of his high school buddies were trying to steal the club’s beer and champagne.

Paul (I want to call him Daffy after Dizzy’s brother, who also had that nickname) was supposed to drive the getaway car. But a cop pulled up, Paul got nervous, the cop got suspicious, and the whole gang was nabbed.

If this is the worst thing that ever happens to your kid, thank God. Gov. Dean rushed off the campaign trail to deal with what he rightly calls a “family crisis.” No campaigning this weekend. And Dean was quick to urge that his son be given no favors.
