…around some 15 year-old’s ankles.
James, if you liked the 1950s quote, you’ll love Dean’s one-liner on the lack of prejudice in today’s generation. There was too much background noise for me to check this against my recorder, but my notepad is surely very close and what it says Dean said is: “There’s a bunch of white kids with pants hanging down to their ankles running around malls today.” These kids, he promised, would populate the more just world Kossacks were currently designing for them.
Actually, you could tell Dean has been off the stage for a bit and relished the chance to get back up on it. This speech was impressively self-assured, fiery without going into Iowa Caucus territory and had the crowd banging on tables and actually calling out “Encore!” after he left the stage.
