Why is the media calling the Dean war whoop
a concession speech? Obviously, Dean was not conceding anything. He gave a victory speech!

2. Because I think they hate it when anyone is not dead calm.
Unless it is Repukes...then it is okay to be loud.

5. Yes, a concession speech is for the end of a race.
Yes, a concession speech is for the end of a race.

The media is only calling it a concession speech in a failed attempt at cleverness.

The implication is like:
It was a concession speech and yet he was energetic. That's a contradiction. Aren't we clever?

6. this should finally put an end to the ridiculous notion
Edited on Thu Jan-22-04 07:54 PM by stinkeefresh
that Rove wants to face Dean. The attempt to kill him outright over this is, to me, clear evidence that they fear him.

8. yes it should
I never bought that from the beginning. They started attacking him way early before anyone else, because they saw his passion and money raising success and ability to inspire people to take the country back for US.
