A liberal rag for a liberal man

To paraphrase “Casablanca,” I am shocked, shocked, to see that the New York Times is endorsing John Kerry.

But what I can’t understand is why such a self-important fish-wrap as the Times would endorse more than two weeks out. If they are as furious with President Bush as their piece indicates – and, believe me, they are irate – it would seem that they would want to maximize the impact of their piece by running it closer to the election so as to contribute to last minute momentum.

Yet by running it now, they will lose any resultant press (although, like I said, this is like saying the sun will rise in the morning) before long, and their words will be distant memories by Election Day.

Then again, hopefully John Kerry will be but a distant memory by the time the New York Times takes to writing their next endorsement.
