Today the Hartford Courant joined the landslide of newspapers that have endorsed Barack Obama for President. They're making a big deal of the fact that only one other time in their 244-year history have they endorsed a Democrat for president; Bill Clinton.
Gee, I guess FDR and JFK were total hacks if I trust the Courant's opinion. Keep in mind this is the same paper that used their hallowed pages to endorse Joe Lieberman for Senate in 2006, and George W. Bush for President...fucking twice! The results of their disastrous policies will be with us long after they're gone.
I'm not really interested in the Courant's rationale for their decision. In fact, the very idea that they're endorsing Barack Obama would normally make me want to take a long second look at him were he not such a strong and natural leader. And the fact that hundreds of major papers across the nation have already announced their endorsements make you look more like bandwagon jumpers than knowledgeable prognosticators.
Maybe you guys should just stay out of the endorsement business. You seem to have a knack for mostly picking some real losers who turn out to be awful leaders, and I'd hate for Barack Obama to fall victim to the "Courant Curse".
So, thanks for nothing.
