I can't figure out what the deal is with the supposed "howl".  The only 
video I saw of the event was from a normal mic back in the room, and it 
looked like yer normal stump speech to me.

If the new standard is going to be you can point a parabolic mic at a 
candidate and make fun of 'em, just go to a Bush fundraiser, turn the 
mic up on full, and wait for a burp, tummy rumble, or other 
embarrassing noises.
