Washington Post Hates Freedom
The Post is in the tank for Obama, per the endorsement running in Friday’s fishwrap.
Now I am a junkie for endorsements. And this is a swing-state paper, on account of NoVa readers. But endorsements are overrated. No doubt about it.
Yet there is something here, as the Post editorial board was basically fellating Dubya on the war from the jump. Disgusting stuff, really. But they have caught Hope, for which there is no cure but Change. Paragraph No. 2 sets up the rest:
“The choice is made easy in part by Mr. McCain’s disappointing campaign, above all his irresponsible selection of a running mate who is not ready to be president. It is made easy in larger part, though, because of our admiration for Mr. Obama and the impressive qualities he has shown during this long race. Yes, we have reservations and concerns, almost inevitably, given Mr. Obama’s relatively brief experience in national politics. But we also have enormous hopes.”
Like, ouch, dude.
