The Scream Meme: Over already
: I’ve said it before: We are bulimiac culture. We binge and purge. We binge on pop-culture trends (reality shows, blooper shows, tabloid shows…) and then get it out of our system and move on. I think we binged on the Dean Scream and got it out of our system and now we’re ready to move on. Some are complaining that we and our media paid too much attention to it; that’s what we do. Binge. Then purge. The natural order of American life. Having purged, though, we look for the next thing. Is that next thing Kerry… or Edwards… or Dean?
