Sometimes Howard Dean screaming incoherently on stage is a lot easier to translate than some of his tweets.

As Twitchy noted, UC Berkeley, which had canceled an appearance by Ann Coulter due to safety concerns, dug around a bit and found a super-secret protected venue and a new date. (Coulter maintains she’ll be there on the originally contracted date; #ShePersisted, as it were.)

Former presidential candidate Howard Dean seems a bit bothered that Coulter is being allowed a forum at all, seeing as her brand of hate speech is not protected under the First Amendment.

It’s gonna be hard to slip that theory past a public that just had a constitutional law professor as president for eight years.

We understand some believe the Constitution is a living, evolving document, but our old copy doesn’t mention hate speech anywhere, let alone a ban.

Oh, we remember.
