Endorsing

So, as interesting as the Columbus Dogpatch is for endorsing Bush…..the Cleveland Plain Dealer goes and tops that by……ta da…..choosing not to endorse ANYONE.

“We saw no opportunity to serve the purpose of informing readers beyond what the news pages and their own civic diligence have done.

In the end, we did not feel comfortable giving either candidate what would essentially come down to bragging rights.

We believe our readers are perfectly capable of making an informed, rational decision by their own lights, and we strongy urge them to do so.”

Really? Though it would be nice, I never expect the public to make an ‘informed’ decision w/out the heavy hand of mass media. That means they’d have to think for themselves….and gosh darn it, that is just toooooooo hard.
