Dean -- founder of the youth ministry You Can Run But You Can't Hide, and drummer for the "second-best unsigned band in the nation," Junkyard Prophet -- has said in the past that gays deserve to be jailed for breaking the law. He believes there's no difference between Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden. And as TPM has reported, Dean calls Rep. Keith Ellison's (D-MN) support of "homosexuals" part of a plot to implement Sharia law.
Because no Nation is more famously tolerant of gay people than Iran. Naturally, this bonehead managed to offend even most Republicans.
And, of course, he is Michele Bachmann's buddy.
