Ken Mehlman: Idiot Republican

Mehlman on CNN today: "The NAACP unfortunately in the 2000 campaign likened the president to James Byrd, who was a racist killer in east Texas, who the president brought to justice."

Was the racist, truck-dragging murder of a black man in Texas such a nonstory to Mehlman that he forgot that James Byrd was, in fact, the victim and not the murderer?

Mehlman owes the Byrd family an apology.

But then again, neither Mehlman nor Bush every really cared about Byrd nor his family, as this Salon piece from 2000 documents. That Mehlman would even attempt to spin Byrd's tragedy for political gain is sick.
