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.
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.
