Dean, Dean, Dean

By now you’ve probably heard Howard Dean’s “I Have a Scream” sound-bite. So far, I think the best assessment comes from Bob Garfield of NPR’s “On the Media.” You can listen to his commentary in Real Audio, or you can read the transcript.

The thing that bugs me about the media’s coverage of Dean’s yell is this: they’re using an emotional moment to bury the best candidate the Democrats are fielding. Maybe another candidate would make an OK president (not Kerry), but Dean has the enthusiasm to do the job. Hopefully he’ll be able to overcome the mockery he has received over the past week.
