Howard Dean: Why Are These Right-Wing Chickenhawk Nutjobs So Angry?

Font Size:

Last week, Howard Dean insulted everybody who’s gone to see American Sniper. This week, he’s apologizing… to people he never insulted in the first place.

Judy Kurtz, The Hill:

Howard Dean is saying sorry to military veterans for his comments about “American Sniper,” but says he’s not apologizing to the “right-wing nutjobs…”

“I’ll tell you something, which I’ve almost never done in politics,” Dean said to MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews on Tuesday, “I’ll apologize to the veterans. I haven’t seen the movie, and I think it was wrong…”

While Dean offered up a mea culpa to veterans, he did an about-face when it came to other conservative critics, saying on MSNBC, “I make no apologies to all of the thousands of right-wing nutjobs who’ve been Twittering me with nasty language… The people who tweeted me all weekend and used a lot of bad language, they’re chicken hawks and I have no respect for them.”

You tell ’em, Howie. In fact, you should go door to door and tell them in person. You already know where they live:

Veterans, it’s up to you whether or not you want to accept this lunatic’s “apology.” He hates anybody who disagrees with him politically, so be sure to factor that into your decision.
