Former Democratic National Committee chairman and one-time presidential hopeful Howard Dean blasted a conservative media outlet on Thursday, calling National Review a "a right-wing conservative nutcase."
Dean's criticism 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 the National Review of misquoting some of his recent comments on the attack in Benghazi, Libya.
“National Review is just silly,” he began. “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.”
