30. I don't buy it.
For every pundit that said Dean was unelectable, another one said Kerry's campaign was dead. You can call them puppets if you want, but that's punditry and it helps and hurts both sides.

Don't know about the Dean=Osama ad, or the 3 AM robocalls, but an equal amount of deception goes on at DU when people call Kerry Bush-Lite and when they call Clark a Republican. You can blame it on the DNC if you want, but it that's politics and it helps and hurts both sides.

As for the scream - I saw it live, and I shuddered. It wouldn't have mattered if it was played over and over again, it scared me to begin with. I don't want a nominee who will scream like that in front of cameras.
