The estimable Matt Lewis over at Politics Daily was an eyewitness to Dylan Ratigan's admission:
More from Matt:
Ratigan went on to clarify, adding that, "you can do whatever you want. The social [issues] ... I could care less. ..."
Sadly, Ratigan didn't get to finish explaining, but it was still an interesting moment -- if for no other reason that that it is generally assumed that most MSNBC hosts are liberal Democrats.
Personally, I've always found Ratigan to be more of an intellectually honest, cynical iconoclast who is hard to pigeonhole. While he clearly has some conservative leanings, I was surprised to hear him describe himself as "a conservative."
