Dean: Stop using words!

DNC chief Howard "Primal Scream" Dean was on Meet the Press Sunday. Hilarity ensued:
Russert caught the one-time presidential candidate off guard when he asked about his recent endorsement of self-professed socialist Rep. Bernie Sanders to replace retiring Vermont Senator Jim Jeffords. "Well, first of all, he's not a socialist, really," Dean protested. When Russert noted that Sanders had acknowledged in writing: "Outside or in the House, I am a Democratic socialist," Dean offered meekly, "Well, a Democratic socialist – all right, we're talking about words here."
Yeah, we are...don't you just hate it when that happens? Those damned word thingees again!
