Angry Dad

A lot of people have compared Howard Dean’s bizarre performance on Monday night to Bruce Banner turning into the Incredible Hulk. Well it reminded me more of “Crazy Dad”. You can see by Mad How’s reaction after his outburst that he needs rage-ohol. He was on one hell of an emotional high.

Last night at the debate we saw him jump back on the wagon. But as wwith all rage-oholics, he can’t be expected to conquer his demons without serious help. Especially with the press corps giving him the full Moe Sizlak Experience, antagonizing and goading him into his next relapse. “Hey look, there’s crazy dad! Let’s make him do something crazy!”

And just to drive this analogy into the ground, Dean should actually be thankful for President Bush for giving him the opportunity to vent his rage rather than keeping it bottled up and causing him to have a heart attack.
