    Former Vermont governor and Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean offered his flawed interpretation of the First Amendment last week during the Ann Coulter-Berkeley controversy. The school cancelled Coulter's scheduled appearance on campus after they decided the conservative speaker would create too dangerous of an environment. They then re-invited her, but rescheduled her speech. Coulter insists she's coming on the original date - this Thursday. Between all the back and forth, Dean defended Berkeley's initial decision to nix the speech, tweeting that "hate speech" is not protected by the Constitution. Putting aside the fact that Dean thinks conservatism amounts to hate speech, Guy explained just how wrong Dean was -...

    "This is an increasingly common idea, and is not just restricted to failed presidential candidates. It is also an extremely insidious idea, for hate speech, contrary to popular belief, is not an objectively quantifiable entity. Ones persons hate speech is anothers outspoken defense of liberty and justice. And there is no basis in the Constitution, or in the numerous Supreme Court decisions interpreting it up to now, for the claim that there is any exclusion of hate speech from First Amendment protection. The label of hate speech is a tool in the hands of the powerful that they use to...

    Remember Howard Dean? He was once the head of the Democratic Party as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Governor of the State of Vermont. He was considered a viable contender for the Democrats nomination for president in 2004 until he uttered the scream that will live on forever:

    When your educational institution of higher learning (in this case none other than the most awesome of the awesome elite, Harvard) provides this helpful instruction : The office of BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard University has released a new school-sponsored guide telling students to fight transphobia and get the facts about gender diversity.The flyer that was handed out to students on campus asserts that there are more than two sexes and that gender is fluid and changing, often fluctuating on a daily basis.

    Joe Scarborough was shocked, shocked to hear yesterday that Democrats have no room for pro-life views from former DNC chair and governor Howard Dean, but … didn’t we already know this? Scarborough told Dean that former governor Steven Beshear — whom the DNC tapped to give a forgettable response to Donald Trump’s speech last week — harkened back to an era where Democrats used to win by sharing the values of voters in their regions, including pro-life and pro-gun positions. Dean responds by claiming ownership of the next generation (via Matt Vespa): CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO “No....

    In a recent MSNBC interview, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean surprised Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough with his assessment of who belongs in the modern Democratic Party. During a discussion about how the party can expand its reach into rural America, Dean, who previously served as Democratic National Committee chairman, dismissed the idea of moderation on social issues.

    A group serving as a central hub of information for congressional town halls was founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer and its parent company is located at the same address as an organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros. Democrats have insisted that recent town hall outbursts against Republican politicians occurred organically, likening them to the Tea Party, while President Donald Trump yesterday tweeted that the "so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous occasions, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!" The Town Hall Project, a group that serves as a one-stop shop...

    Viewers tuning in for the rowdy first presidential debate got their fair share of verbal sparring, but amidst the fireworks many appeared distracted by something else: Donald Trump's sniffle. The Republican candidate sniffled repeatedly during Monday night's debate setting off social-media memes and sparking the hashtag #TrumpSniffle. While Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton whose coughs made frequent fodder for Republicans did not mention his sniffles, former Democratic presidential candidate and DNC chairman Howard Dean did. The former six-term Vermont governor took to Twitter not with a meme but with a message, suggesting that Trump's nasal troubles could be...

    How deeply has Joe Scarborough dived into Hillarys tank? On todays Morning Joe, Scarborough offered Hillary a script of how she should attack right-wing Republicans. Howard Dean was so impressed by Scarboroughs work on Hillarys behalf that he exclaimed I actually think you could actually be her speechwriter. Thats exactly what she should be saying. Im sure you dont want that job, but Im just saying, you know? Howard, dont be so sure Scarborough doesnt want that job. Sure looked this morning like Joe was auditioning for a spot in Hillarys West Wing. View the video here.

    EXETER, N.H. - Wise-cracking funnyman Al Franken yesterday body-slammed a demonstrator to the ground after the man tried to shout down Gov. Howard Dean. The tussle left Franken's trademark thick-rim glasses broken, but he said he was not injured. Franken - who seemed in a state of shock and out of breath after the incident - was helped back to his feet by several people who watched the tussle. Police arrived soon after. "I got down low and took his legs out," said Franken afterwards. Franken said he's not backing Dean but merely wanted to protect the right of people...

    I'm all for Ralph Nader running again. I'd love for Howard Dean to get fed up or some other Democrat to get fed up with Obama and I'd love for a third party of Democrats and liberals to establish itself. I want all kinds of liberals to line and up run in third parties. That's how we weaken their side. As for our side, the focus must be to take back the Republican Party. That's the way you win. You can draw attention to yourself by denouncing both parties at the same time, and you can think that you're relating...

    Does this qualify as a “gaffe” when defined in classic Washington terms? Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean sat down with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC to talk about the New Hampshire primary and seems to have lost control of his better partisan senses for a moment. Mitchell was quizzing him about all the money that Hillary Clinton has taken from special interest groups though her Super PACs and her paid speaking engagements, relating these bits of history to recent attacks coming from Bernie Sanders’ campaign. Dean is one of Clinton’s most vocal (and frequently incomprehensible) supporters and he didn’t take kindly...

    Friday on MSNBC while discussing Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s strategy to attack former President Bill Clinton to weaken his potential general election opponent Hillary Clinton, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean echoed his sentiments from yesterday when he said that strategy was ill-advised. Dean said, "I would say that Donald Trump has finally met more than his match. Bill Clinton’s the best politician in this country, probably the best we've seen in this country since Franklin Roosevelt. And he's not going to respond to Donald Trump. Donald Trump is really good at what he does. His skills don't...

    Spine of Steele! Where has this feisty Michael Steele been? In this NewsBuster's view, the former RNC chairman has too often been the voice of the mushy Republican middle. But on MSNBC's All In this evening, Steele forcefully advanced the GOP cause. For starters, Steele shocked guest host Alex Wagner when he said Donald Trump would beat Hillary Clinton in a debate. Steele then took on Howard Dean, mocking the former DNC chairman when he claimed Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz "know nothing" about foreign policy. For good measure, Michael accused Dean of "shilling for Hillary." Say it, Steele! View...

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders added more progressive grassroots support to his campaign Thursday, picking up the endorsement of the Vermont-based Democracy For America, which was founded out of Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign. The endorsement gives the Vermont senator another big piece of the organized progressive movement to leverage for fundraising and grassroots organizing. It’s the first time DFA has endorsed in a Democratic primary since its founding, and the group pledged Thursday to throw its weight behind Sanders as the homestretch to the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries begins in earnest...
