Be scared, be very very scared

If you have never seen a grown man nosedive into self-induced madness, then help yourself to this video clip of Howard Dean.

Click here to laugh, and be scared.

Hold me. I'm scared that Dean may barge into my home and roll up my sleeves.

What a knucklehead! The thing that amazes me is that if a conservative candidate had a rally where there were that many flags flying, the mainstream media would immediately start wringing their hands over the "troubling and exlusionary nationalism parading itself as patriotism." I was stunned to see so many liberals waving American flags and none of them were on fire!

Wacky stuff!

Ok, that wasnt even a tiny bit crazy, you guys need to get out more, He was just excited, Its nice to see that every once in a while instead of overly conserved "thank you, I am happy too" mono-tone candidates you see every day. I like the guy. He dosent care what shallow people think of him. I'd holler with him any day.

The obvious fact from which you all seem to be hiding is that in his fervor, Dean named more states than your boy Bush could name in a controlled environment. Hell, it's probably more states than Bush is even aware exist.

Remember 2000? Remember:

GOV. BUSH: Because the picture on the newspaper. It just seems so un-American to me, the picture of the guy storming the house with a scared little boy there. I talked to my little brother, Jeb I haven't told this to many people. But he's the governor of I shouldn't call him my little brother my brother, Jeb, the great governor of Texas.
JIM LEHRER: Florida.
GOV. BUSH: Florida. The state of the Florida.

Of course that's just a slip-up. It could be forgiven if it weren't for the literally hundreds of butcherings of the English language, and countless successful attempts to prove his own ignorance. . .

One can only describe as odd the adulation of a man who stumps like a WWE superstar. Anyone who can't admit that Dean was out of control scares me as much as Dean does.

Yeah, I guess that's true. No Republicans of note would act like a pro wrestler they're too dignified for that. . . Just ask the former Govenor of Minnesota.

Jesse Ventura? Reform Party.

Yes, because Bush is the answer to everything, and a candidate who gets excited and pumps up his supporters is such a horrible, scary thing. I think you might want to find a different news source, one that isn't so "Fair and Balanced" to the right.

Thanks, Doug, for correcting me on that. Of course, we're both wrong. "The Body" left the Reform party.

I do apologize for the party missassignment.
