The media, too lazy to report on actual issues in the Democratic primaries, have taken to branding Dean "angry". As if that were a bad thing.

We have a suspiciously elected president who lied to the American public to build a case to invade Iraq. ("Let them eat yellowcake".) His vice president's former company is making huge, fraudulent bank on the deal. His attorney general is systematically dismantling civil liberties, detaining citizens in secret with no due process. And that's just foreign policy. Let's not overlook the ruinous financial policy that is digging America deeper into debt so that his friends don't have to pay taxes.

Isn't anger an appropriate response?
