What Dean shoulda-coulda said re: the screech
IMNSHO Dean blew his opportunity to spin this bizzare sound bite from hell tonight. "I have a cold" is an excuse. What if he had said something like:

"I don't apologize for being enthusiastic and excited about what's going on in this race, not at all. This country needs change, and change requires energy, and that's what I bring. If people want queen's court manners and things to go on as they have been, I'm not their guy. But if they want fundamental change in Washington they'd better elect someone who has some fire in their belly."

or

"They can blow their gravitas out their ..."

or something along those lines.

1. I too think he should have had a fast good response
Instead he has decided to basically apologize for something that was blown out of proportion by the right wing media and their echo chamber.

I think they should have dug up footage of Arnold Schwarzenegger screaming during the campaign in California and sent it to every media outlet and every website that ran the bullshit story.

3. How about Pat Buchanan
at the 1992 GOP convention in Houston?

Or even better, has anyone seen footage of Ashcroft campaigning in S. Carolina in 1996, when he punctuated a vehement anti-abortion rant with a sonogram image of his daughter's unborn child?

Why did people cheer when Bush bellowed "Over my dead body will they raise your taxes!!"?

2. This is sort of like the Muskie thing. Yar I am that old.
Men did not cry in public, if he did, and now they all cry. Also it was seen by every one. I read once that Bush behind cameras acted like a 12 year old cheerleader and swore something awful but no one could film him. This some reporter wrote but it died in that story I guess.That was when he was running for office. I am sure that reporter lift the group fast.If it was true.

4. Did you guys see that bizarre footage of * in some restaurant
trying to take reporters' orders? I saw the footage of him on MSNBC on Countdown. * is such an ass! People think he is funny and someone they'd like to spend time with? He was so unfunny and STUPID. He clearly did not want to answer any reporters' questions. Olberman (host of Countdown) said he didn't even leave a tip.

I was thinking maybe finally the mediawhores are showing what the unscripted * is like when his handlers aren't babysitting.

8. That was VERY Bizzare
I NEED that clip.

I've been telling my girlfriend for months that I think there is something medically wrong with Bush. The deli episode is another example. He was pastey white, seemed confused and his eyes weren't tracking anything.

Anybody have a link to the video?
