Dean stitched up

by Limbic on January 30, 2004

From Metafilter:

It has been said that reality is all about perspective — a camera is a pinhole view of the world that frequently filters out much of the story. With that in mind, check out this video of the familiar “I have a scream” speech by Dean. I’m no Dean supporter, but from down in the trenches it doesn’t look nearly as bad as it played on TV. Obviously the video you’ve seen on the news has the best part and the audience noise turned down, but from this vantage point, the speech almost seems appropriate for the crowd and the moment (but was still a lapse in judgement to forget cameras were rolling). I hope this isn’t too subtle of a point — forget all the politics involved — this is a fascinating look at a familiar scene that was looped for the past week, but from an entirely different perspective and a different story emerges.

It is astonishing how easily something like this can be twisted to make the man look like a nut.
