Dean changes his name to "Bass-o-Matic" in hopes of drawing the nostalgic 1970's SNL voter

Dean awaits the Throbbing Brain of Cyburbia to invent a euphemism relating to killing salmon ;)

Taking a cue from Lyndon Johnson, Dean throttles his pet fish to the delight of the media junket.

In one smooth breathtaking movement, Presidential candidate Dean withdraws the salmon 'Excalibur' from its block of ice, signifying that by Divine Right he should be King....

Seriously short of campaign funds, Dean tries to anger PETA to whip up a new media frenzy.

Due to funding problems Dean launches with his "scaled back" campaign.

Dean makes an example of the corporate giant Halibut-on for their overcharges in Irag service contracts

I'm not clever enough to come up with a headline of my own, but I think bunyabashi wins this round! :)

But Dean can't wield supreme executive power because of some fish

After a rousing game of "smiles" with the locals, Dean notices the media have snuck onto the scene and whips a salmon from beneath the table, exclaming, "Ha ha! Fooled all of you! It's not a young campaign worker... It's just a fish!



(If you don't know what "smiles" is... well, I ain't getting into it.)

But it's a salmon, not a sucker.

After another disheartening showing at the polls, Howard Dean takes a part-time job to get busfare to his next primary loss.

To show that he can be a great leader, Dean tries to tame the wild by catching a fish with his bare hands to feed the village. His first try was unsuccessful, but the second time, he was able to get hold of the beast, and raise it over his head. The village then laughed and pointed before a little girl from the crowd came forward to inform him that the fish is already dead.


YYYYYEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHHH

Dean: Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat. Nothing up my sleeve. Oops, wrong hat.

:-D Noodling is the sport of catching fish with "No hook, no bait, no fear". You basically wade in river and go for it. It's supposedly outlawed in most states with the exception of four states including Oklahoma, where the Okie Noodling Tournament attracts "noodlers" from around the country...

Dean's last speech ever:

"I want to be the candidate for southern, redneck fishermen with confederate flags on their boats . . . no, I mean . . . I want to be the candidate for lazy minority fishermen who don't even speak English. . . wait, . . . I want to be the candidate for dumb bible-thimping fishermen. . . I mean . . ."
