Casey Anthony: More Important Than Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann, Et Al.

The O.J. Simpson of baby-killers:

A Smart Politics study of Lexis-Nexis transcripts from CNN, FOX, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NPR found more news reports mentioned the Casey Anthony trial at least one time than any of the 10+ major and minor Republican presidential candidates since opening statements were delivered on May 24th.
The Anthony murder case was covered in 899 reports overall, with Mitt Romney mentioned in 764, followed by Michele Bachmann at 609, Tim Pawlenty at 454, Newt Gingrich at 438, and Herman Cain at 321.

And all the people who were riveted by wall-to-wall cable TV coverage of the Casey Anthony trial are eligible to vote. Scary, isn’t it?
