The Dean Yell
: Howard Stern was, like much of America, amazed at Dean’s unvictory speech in Iowa, especially that unearthly squawk he made: like the last angry cry of the last dodo bird.
Stern put the speech on top of an AC/DC track and it worked.
A caller had them put the speech over a track of cheers from a Nuremburg rally — but after yelling at Margeret Cho, below, for Hitler references, I couldn’t laugh.
Robin said Dean should have had a bottle of booze in his fist. “Nobody should make that sound sober,” she said.
Artie said it sounded like a rock star trying to score some mari-i-juana.
And Howard Stern said it sounded like the cry he makes when he gets Little Howie stuck in the zipper.
: This is how the National Review spells the yell: “YAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!”
: Matt Welch’s review: “Boy, That Dean’s a Crazy Sonofabitch Ain’t He? But not necessarily in a bad way! I kinda liked his barking madman routine, why the hell not?… I kind of like the idea of a crazy man running for president, but my tastes have long been unsound.”
