None Dare Call it Bias

'cept me.

Insty links to a The Hill story on a nutjob Democrat:

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Charles Barron calls Robert Mugabe and Moammar Gadhafi his "heroes." He compared Israel's government to the Nazis, says he won't salute the American flag, and once offered that he wanted to "slap" the nearest white person.

And come January, he could be central Brooklyn's newest congressman, if voters here give him an upset victory in the Democratic primary on June 26.

<ford_truck_guy_voice>It's free speech 101 baby, and I welcome the nutjob to the race.</ford_truck_guy_voice>

Yet it occurs that a similarly out-of-mainstream GOP candidate would be a big deal. Governor Romney would be forced to disavow him. And all my Facebook friends would post a NY Times story about him. But a crazy Democrat? Nothing to see here.
