This is obvious when you think about it, but one of the reason Dean seemed a bit over the top during his “I have a scream” speech is that he was apparently using a noise canceling mic. When mixed with the roaring sound of the crowd (as it is with some of the videos shot by crowd members), it takes on a different character all-together. Would someone more media-savvy caught this and made sure that it didn’t happen? Probably not.
I just don’t understand how Dems prefer a dud like Kerry. I guess they’ve had enough excitement for now. But unlike with Dean, I will have that nasty taste in my mouth if I am forced to vote for Kerry in the general election. Lesser evils suck.
