“Dean got a yell. Kucinich got a ufo. Dukakis got a helmet.”
You forgot about Kerry and the bunny suit.
The only problem with your theory is, Dean didn’t “get” a yell, Dean really did yell. Kucinich didn’t “get” a UFO, Kucinich told everyone else about the UFO and owns up to it. Dukakis didn’t “get” a helmet, he put it on himself thinking he’d look cool and manly and instead actually managed to make an army helmet look dorkish. And Kerry really did dress up in a big blue bunny suit and crawl on all floors smiling for the camera.
The VRWC didn’t do that, Pitt. Every single one of them did it to themselves. No one held a gun to their head and made them do all those silly things. It really was their fault for making asses of themselves. But wait, that’s the personal responsibility thing, I forgot you libs don’t do that.
