Come On, People Now, Smile On Your Brother ...

... everybody get together, try to love one another right now.

Let's all sing together for DNC chairman Howard Dean, who's calling for a return of the 1960's. Yeah, that decade.

( - America is about to revisit one of the most turbulent decades in its history, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean told a religious conference in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday. "We're about to enter the '60s again," Dean said, but he was not referring to the Vietnam War or racial tensions.

Dean said he is looking for "the age of enlightenment led by religious figures who want to greet Americans with a moral, uplifting vision."

"The problem is when we hit that '60s spot again, which I am optimistic we're about to hit, we have to make sure that we don't make the same mistakes," Dean added.

I don't know. The race riots. The rioting at the '68 Democratic Convention. The assassinations - two Kennedy's and Dr. Martin Luther King. Kent State. The "Great Society" - not so great, as it turned out. The "War on Poverty" - which failed.

It was no picnic for Democrats, who managed to lose the '68 Presidential election to a retread in Richard Nixon, then get absolutely swamped with George McGovern their standard bearer in '72. And that in the middle of an "unpopular" war. Is Mr. Dean really sure he wants the 60's again? I hope he hasn't been smoking any of those funny cigarettes.

Well, at least gas was cheap then. Okay, now, sing with me!

There's something happening here.
What it is ain't exactly clear...
