They don't know how to cover him... generally, I think they media was far more ready to cover a candidate like Kerry, Gephardt, or Lieberman than were someone like Dean. But Dean's personality is a bit more unconverntional.
And typically, the media is really bad at making ideological distinctions outside of party lines.
If we lived in a predominately Muslim country, then I would have no problem with a critique (which is really what it is, IMO) of this sort using Muhammad. Given the fact that we don't, then it would be completely out of place.
