Reuters reports that Dean "disarm[ed]" hecklers in New Hampshire by leading the crowd in singing the national anthem. Technically, this is less disarming than drowning out. But no matter! It's a great idea. We look forward to escalation along these lines: Hitting hecklers with apple pies, for instance. Also good: Having Mom say "shhhhh." Better (and, really, more Dean's style): Hitting hecklers with baseball bats. Best: Have Mom hit them with baseball bats while telling them to shut their apple pie-hole!
