From today's NY Post Page Six:
October 17, 2003 -- DEMOCRATIC front-runner Howard Dean's bid to court rural Iowans by painting himself as one of them at a forum this week didn't go over too well with Iowa's most influential political reporter, David Yepsen. In a column, Yepsen zinged Dean as the "ultimate panderer" and explained, "The former Vermont governor once referred to 'us rural people' during his remarks." Yepsen had right to be irked. Dean's idea of "rural" apparently means being born to a wealthy family in New York City, attending an exclusive prep school in Rhode Island and studying at Yale.
