Why the silence on Byrd?

Howie Kurtz today:

By the way, I've seen nothing in the major papers, and only a few mentions on cable, of Robert Byrd appearing to liken GOP tactics to Hitler, which he now denies, even though Jewish groups have demanded an apology ("Hideous" and "outrageous," says the ADL.) Why is the press giving Byrd a pass?
Hmm.. psst. Howie, it might have something to do with his party affiliation. What's Byrd's party affiliation anyway? Doesn't seem to be reported much.
