Wait, I just realized who Dean sounded like!

If you get this, you are a nerd.

Update: Or how about... this?

Does this mean I lose my nerd status?

Hasn't Ned Beatty been humiliated enough?

Avenger, get me coffee!

Well I may not be a nerd, but I do know that Joe Lieberman sounds like Dr. Zoidberg from Futurama. And didn't Dean's scream sound just a bit like Meatwad?

Lieberman sounds like Willie (the father) from the old show Alf.

Dr. Zoidberg sounds more like Jackie Mason, I think.

I suppose I'm only burying myself deeper in the depths of nerd-dom, but Dean's speech made me think of Steve Ballmer waving his fist and shouting "Developers! Developers! Developers! Developers!" with that same charming little strangled screech of indeterminate emotion at the end. Big Steve seemed a lot more cheerful, though.

I keep wanting to say the Blue Falcon for that first one. Maybe it's the same voice artist.

It's fitting that my good friend Kevin PARROTT can't place that one...

Ah. Those were the days.

I have my own theory.

Posted by: Colby Cosh at January 20, 2004 05:33 PM

Yeah, Meatwad is about right.

It was merely Dean calling on the power of the gods to help him win New Hampshire by using the magic word. Y is for Yeus, god of organization. A is for Aples, god of endorsements. R is for Ropales, god of fundraising. And H is for Hardes, god of... er, fast food hamburgers?... oh, "getting out the vote," that's it. When these powers join together, Dean becomes Captain Hodean, most powerful candidate ever! Together with his elderly sidekick Mentor, whom he constantly tells to "Sit down!" they fight for half-truths, justice-when-it's-politically-expedient and the internationalist way! Oh, and he was sleep-deprived. At 9:30 p.m.

Jim, that was funny... you evil man, you.

I hear that guy's a lawer or something these days.

Good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the Lieberman/Zoidberg connection.
