Too Unbelievable To Be True
We all knew that the Post Editorial Board would get this bad, and we all know that they will soon endorse Creigh Deeds for Governor. In pursuit of their goal of installing a tax-hiker for Governor, they have gone off the deep end whitewashing any possible Democratic fault. From their latest laughable foray into the race (where they again tacitly endorse the idea that social issues are more important than growing jobs, repairing the economy, and righting the budget):
The Bob McDonnell who wrote that thesis would make a divisive, disruptive and partisan governor — a sharp departure from the tradition of generally pragmatic executives who have helped make Virginia one of the better-managed states in the union.
God forbid we have a partisan Governor… LIKE ONE WHO ACCEPTS A POSITION AS CHAIRMAN OF THE DNC!
Simply unbelievable. Literally the highest-ranking partisan official in the entire United States resides in our Governor’s Mansion and the Post doesn’t have a problem with it, but try to put a Republican in there and see what happens. After all, we wouldn’t want someone who has been talking about the divisive issue of abortion for the last month. Oh, wait.
I don’t have a problem with the Post almost always endorsing Democrats. My problem, based on articles like this, is a question of do they even know what they’re talking about. I don’t know how tuned into the Commonwealth of Virginia the Post Editorial Board is, but judging by the complete fantasy world they live in I’d be surprised if they’ve gone as far as Rosslyn.
