What Was That Exasperated Sigh?

This is why we like Howard Dean (video via Fables of the Reconstruction)

Dean doesn't pussyfoot around trying to mince words diplomatically, thus he gets the message out clearly in the allotted time.
There's no evidence that I've seen that Jack Abramoff directed any contributions to Democrats. I know the Republican National Committee would like to get the Democrats involved in this. They're scared. They should be scared. They haven't told the truth. They have misled the American people. And now it appears they're stealing from Indian tribes. The Democrats are not involved in this.

But what was that heavy, exasperated sigh Wolf Blitzer gave at the end? Was he frustrated the Dean wasn't rolling over? Upset that he didn't have time to sneak in another Republican talking point? That, once again, he fell for the right wing lies?

Or could it be that in that three seconds of silence, he realized again how much of a tool he is? It's easy to forget when most people who aren't Dean don't confront him with the unequivocating truth.
