In describing his faux concern about Kerry’s debate response to the gay question, Ken Mehlman actually compared it to the Dean scream:
“Remember the famous Dean scream? The famous Dean scream was seen as relevant because it was a window into something that people thought was bigger.”
Yes it was. It was a window onto the fact that our political process and the herds that cover it can both often be accurately described as shallow, misleading, pathetic, embarrassing and stupid. Melhman managed to make this point and provide another example to support it all in one statement.
