I've been out all day so maybe I'ved missed it, but I don't see that any of the new stories have pointed out why Dean would've compared Harris to Stalin. Josh Marshall says he's confused. It's obviously a reference to the (possibly apocryphal?) Stalin quote:

It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.

Anyway, it's generally bad form to compare people to mass murdering dictators, but that clearly wasn't the point of the comparison...
