The Awful Truth About Howard Dean and Ninjas

Recently a rumor spread through blogville (I read it in Pandagon) that presidential candidate Howard Dean had a brief career as an actor, appearing as a police officer in the 1984 b-movie "Ninja III: The Domination".

Apparently IMDB corroborates this claim, but is it really possible that is the same Howard Dean? And who is the loser that actually owns a copy of this movie, and will sit through the whole thing to find out if this is true?

Ladies and gentlemen, I am that loser.

I'm sorry to report that I have now sat through "Ninja III: The Domination" in its entirety (believe me I'm REALLY SORRY to report that), and I did not see Governor Howard Dean. There are probably over 100 police officers in this film, each of whom eventually gets their ass kicked by a ninja, so maybe I just didn't recognize him because a shuriken was embedded in his face. But I'm guessing it's a different Dean.

And just so you can appreciate how much I suffer for my blog peoples, here's a little sample of the dialogue and music I subjected myself to.

(If you're asking why I had ever purchased this tape in the first place: Dude, it stars Lucinda Dickey from "Breakin". And it has ninjas in it. Ninjas... killing cops! How can you expect me to pass that by in the $3.99 bin at Record Explosion?)
