Rove on Dean [Rove Has Tape of a Second "Dean Scream"]
Financial Times ^ | February 11 2005

Karl Rove was on best behaviour at Time Warner's inaugural Conversations on the Circle this week in New York - until he was asked about Howard Dean.

Rove surprised the audience by revealing the existence of a second "Dean scream".

Rove disclosed that the White House had a tape of the scream, which erupted at the end of a speech to the California Democratic state convention in Sacramento on March 15 2003.

Dean, then a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, declares: "I want my country back! [cheers]. We want our country back! [cheers]. I'm tired of being divided! [cheers]. I don't want to listen to the fundamentalist preachers anymore! [cheers]."

On Wednesday evening, Rove was still salivating at the prospect of using the tape - along with the infamous post-Iowa caucus scream - in a future election.

But just for the record, Rove - the man President Bush affectionately calls "Turdblossom" - considers Dean a worthy opponent who could be a good chairman of the Democratic national committee.

"I want my country back!"

I want mine back too, you stinking Leftists.

I saw a young looking guy (22 years old, perhaps) wearing a Howard Dean "I want my country back" T-shirt.

He didn't look mature and responsible enough to own his own car, much less a piece of this country.

Great stuff.

The only person better than Dean for the job would be Michael Moore. A nutty movie could trump a 30 second scream. Still, might be hard for Rove to carry the movie around...

This Turdblossom thing could mushroom.
