Ninja Gate

I wrote this letter to Salon about their recent article on Dean's possible role in a cheezy 1980s ninja movie. I also CC'ed the author and he wrote me back saying he enjoyed the letter. Turns out he did try to contact the director, but couldn't get a hold of the guy.

To the editor:

I have been a long-time reader and subscriber to Salon. It's times like these when I realize how worth it my investment in Salon has been. John Gorenfeld's in-depth reporting on one of the biggest stories of this campaign cycle -- Ninja-gate -- has fundamentally changed the dynamics of the 2004 campaign. The actor clearly sounds like Howard Dean. One can easily imagine him bellowing "All units! All units! You have the power!"

Dean flatly denies he is in the movie. But Dean's "ninja problem" is not going to go away simply by denial. I urge Gorenfeld to dig deeper. Find the director and get him on record. Because what I wanna know is, does Howard Dean have the real ultimate power?
