FlashHarry: the dean scream was NOT a gaffe. it was a hatchet job by the media. when it was played endlessly by CNN et al., they only played the audio from his microphone and not the audio from the room. the reason he was "screaming" was that the audience in the room was going crazy. if you listen to the "scream" in context, with the audience noise, it sounds perfectly normal. but, no, the "liberal media" played just dean's mic channel, and the rest is, well, history.

I dunno. I want to agree with this one, but I can't. A gaffe is an embarrassing thing that you didn't mean to do. Doesn't matter if it *shouldn't* have been a gaffe, the moment a whole bunch of people say it's a gaffe, it is.

Shouldn't have been, though.
