Too bad this nutball didn't receive the Democrat presidential nomination

So Howard Dean says, well, let's hear it from him:

Howard Dean said the scream speech "never happened," and that its repetition more than 900 times in the following week showed cable "at its worst" and revealed cable news as a "Murdochized" entertainment medium, not journalism.

Uh Howard? You might want to up the dosage. I'm just saying. For the record, I was piddling around on my blog with the TV on in the background that evening when Dean made his foray into political oblivion. When he started screeching, "We're going to ", I was chuckling a bit. And then came the YEEEAARRGGHH! sound, which actually startled me. Not because it sounded manical(okay, it did a little), but rather because this was a nationally televised speech. It's one thing when you're feeding red meat to both of your supporters in private, quite another to act like a raving looney when the whole world is watching. I wondered if I was the only one that felt that way. Turns out that I wasn't.

Hat tip to Jeff.

Even if Dean's scream WAS proportional to the crowd noise, he's still a social-ist nutball.

NOTE: heh. Your comment server rejected this because it had the word "ci@lis" in it :-)

Interesting. I'll give it a try myself.
