Dean on Republicans

Yesterday, Dean explained his prior controversial remarks on Republicans:
The Republicans are not very friendly to different kinds of people. They're a pretty monolithic party. They all behave the same and they all look the same. It's pretty much a white, Christian party, and the Democrats have got everybody you can think of. . . . We have to be tough on the Republicans. The Republicans don't represent ordinary Americans and they don't have any understanding of what it is to have to go out and try to make ends meet.

In the same comments, Dean also explained that minority politicians never get elected within the Republican Party, likely managing to insult all of the elected minority Republicans.

Dean also explained that the Democrats had the advantage over Republicans because Democrats are open, friendly people (and presumably not the type to get caught up in prejudicial stereotyping of people who aren't exactly like them):
We're more welcoming to different folks because that's the kind of people we are.
In other words, Republicans, being the evil bigots that they are, shut out all the "different folks?" Dean previously explained that Republicans are "evil" and that he "hates" Republicans. So, the Democrats are open, friendly and welcoming to "different folks," just as long as those "different folks" aren't Republicans, or Christians, or something weird like that, in which case they're evil and hated. Got it.

At this point, I'm way beyond being insulted by Dean and wacko comments. At this point, he's more amusing than anything. Plus, I really believe he can't help himself. My question is, how long can Dean's fellow Democrats continue to align themselves with his shenanigans and still expect to be trusted to solve America's problems? It appears that Sens. Biden and Edwards already see the need to distance themselves from Dean. Who's next?
