Howard Dean: "It's pretty much a white Christian party."
RNC Chair Ken Mehlman on Fox & Friends, responding to Dean's quote: "We gotta get ourselves beyond this point where when we disagree about politics, we call the other guy names."
Names? "White Christian" is a slur now? Are we supposed to be saying FaithBased-Americans? Chricausians? We don't want to offend anyone (unless they're not white or Christian), so let us know. Also: Ken, we're glad you chose to express this sentiment at Fox News, but can you say it a little louder maybe, so Hannity and O'Reilly hear you too? No, louder. Seriously, Ken, louder. We think you're really gonna have to shout. Pretend like you're Luciano Pavarotti and you just sat on chainsaw. Yeah, just like that -- LOUD! Thanks. — GREG BEATO
