  •  again with the scream? (none)
    "Do you often think about that [the Dean "scream"]?"

    Well, if you didn't keep bringing it up, nobody would...

    •  This was bash the Dems week on CNN. (none)
      Wolf had to do it, he was required.  I thought Dean was gracious, though.

    •  Dean Scream commerical (4.00)
      Hey, Dean go ahead and scream

      we all are

      over 2000 dead in Iraq


      domestic spying


      New Orleans


      no health Care


      on and on

      Now I know what you mean Howard Dean


      •  Body counts (none)
        Nothing personal, but every time I see "over 2000 dead in Iraq", I want to scream:  "Over 100000 dead in Iraq!"

        While on the subject, I keep seeing people say that there'll soon be as many Americans killed in Iraq as there were killed on 9/11.  The number is already surpassed, as almost 1/3 of those who died on 9/11 were foreign nationals.  (Don't have a link, but I read that on dKos.)

        Still on the subject:  Is anyone doing a sincere effort to count and list all who died in (and as a result of) Katrina?

        This was my mini-diary for today.  Emphasis on mini.

        •  Another point worth remembering: (none)
          Not everyone who died on 9/11 was an American, either.

          The World Trade Center - well, the name says it all. Foreign nationals worked there. NonAmericans were on the flights that crashed.

          9/11 was a tragedy for the whole world, a crime against the whole world, in a way.  The repercussions of it have been felt everywhere.  

        •  All the lives lsot in Iraq--American or Iraqi-- (none)
          are tragedies.  Our lives aren't worth mroe thant heirs--but theirs aren't worth m,or than ours, either.  

          ANd let's not forget that quite a few of the Iraqi lives lsot were nto the result of American bombs or gunshots or white phosphorus (though that horrifies me past beign stunned) but  were the resutl of suicide bombings, IEDs and sniper fire from insurgents, soem fellow Iraqis--this is as much tribal warfare now as anything else.

          The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

    •  Yeah (none)
      I love living in a society that can look at a funny noise over and over and decide it's a disqualification for being president.
    •  They apparently do not realize (none)
      That MANY of us considered 'the scream' one of several HIGH points in Dean's public career.
      I found him exciting and energizing.
      He's a rock star to many.
      I am not alone in this.

      IMPEACH THEM NOW! It only takes One State.
