Howard Dean Attacks Publications National Review, Daily Caller: 'Right-Wing Nutcase'

Dean on Morning Joe


TPM
Former Democratic National Committee chairman and one-time presidential hopeful Howard Dean ripped a pair of conservative media outlets on Thursday, calling National Review a "a right-wing conservative nutcase" and The Daily Caller "propaganda organization."

Dean's harsh words came during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," after co-host Mika Brzezinski read an excerpt from a column written by Rich Lowry, the editor of National Review, who blasted Attorney General Eric Holder. The former Vermont governor dismissed Lowry's argument, and accused National Review of mischaracterizing some of his recent comments on the attack in Benghazi, Libya.

“National Review is just silly,” he began his rant. “Who is going to take them seriously? It's a right-wing conservative nutcase. Let’s just be blunt about the National Review, right? They claimed last week that I said that the death of four Americans in Benghazi was a joke. What I said was that the investigation was a joke. This is crap. Who gives a damn? This is why I don’t read editorial pages 'cause I don’t give a damn what these people think.”

He was referring to a piece by National Review's Andrew Johnson, who led his article by noting that Dean "considers the controversy over Benghazi" to be a "joke" and "silly."


I guess Howard Dean would probably think the same of this website

One of the things Dean is so worked up about originated right here on this blog. I first posted the Dean 'Benghazi is a laughable joke' video after recording it on Friday evening during his appearance on CNBC's Kudlow. Dean was on with RNC communications chair Sean Spicer and the topic was Obama scandals including Benghazi.  After posting the video, I sent it to Drudge. It made the Drudgereport, 3 days later on Tuesday, linked to National Review, of course.
