Dean brings unity message to Oregon's Democrats
Although much of the speech dealt with national issues and campaign themes, Dean started his speech with an appeal for Democrats to unite around Gov. Ted Kulongoski, who won the nomination last month with 54 percent of the vote and faces a tough re-election bid in November.
Kulongoski leapt to his feet from a seat on the platform from where Dean spoke and pumped his fists in the air. But the crowd's enthusiasm failed to match that of their party's candidate. After countless standing ovations earlier that night for other party leaders, only one person in the crowd stood while the governor was greeted with polite applause.
Ha ha ha ha ha. Whew. That is funny. No wait, I'm going to read it again... ha ha ha ha ha. Ok, ok, when you read it again, especially the part about Kulongoski "pumping his fist in the air" read it in a Ben Stein voice and real slow.
The Kulongoski one man pep rally. That can't be good for his self-esteem.
