Brian Wilson Gives Howard Dean Bad Vibrations

Fox News reporter Brian Wilson asked a pointed question of DNC Chair Howard Dean at a press conference yesterday.

The press chorus then devolved into a cacophony of competing screams. (And Dean knows screams!) After several seconds, a booming voice cut through the noise. It belonged to Brian Wilson, a Fox News correspondent who was standing in the middle of the crowd. He asked Dean “if people are focused on the other things that you’ve said about hating Republicans, about Republicans being dishonest and then this latest comment about the Republican Party is full of white Christians. You say you hate Republicans — does that mean you also” hate white Christians?

Dean didn’t respond and Reid talked about having a “positive agenda.” Wilson was so insistent that at one point, Durbin asked, “Does he run the press conference?”

Michelle Malkin picks the story up from there.
