"The Dean Scream"

I emailed an old friend this morning who I worked with in 2004 on a presidential campaign, and it got me waxing nostalgia and I had to see The Dean Scream again. I hate the media for so many reasons, and this has to be near the top of the list. The guy was simply trying to rally his supporters after a disappointing loss in the Iowa primary, and the corporate media gasbags said it was a "meltdown". WTF? I watch it and all I see is a guy having a good time, trying to cheer up his supporters. You can see the guy laughing after he says it. I didn't support Dean but I thought it was great. I guess you can't let your true self shine through in this age, since every jackass in front of the camera is going to have some kind of an opinion.
