Republican Chairman Ken Mehlman -- "Democrats are mostly Jews and Blacks and Atheists"

Actually, Mehlman didn't say that. But if he had, do you think it would have appeared in the Roanoke Times?

So why has there been no -- zero, zip, nada -- coverage of the recent storm over Howard Dean's dismissive remarks about Republicans being mostly narrow-minded "white Christians?" The controversy has made the evening network news. It's been covered by The Washington Post and other major news outlets.

Even RT news editor Mike Riley's old employer, CNN (the Clinton News Newtwork), has covered the story.

Oh, now I remember. Mr. Riley once managed the CNN website "AllPolitics."

All politics. I forgot.
