ONE FROM THE HEART:

Editorial: John McCain for GOP nominee (LA Times, February 3, 2008)

At a different moment in American history, we would hesitate to support a candidate for president whose social views so substantially departed from those we hold. But in this election, nothing less than America's standing in the world turns on the outcome. Given that, our choice for the Republican nominee in 2008 is sure and heartfelt. It is John McCain.

McCain opposes abortion and rejects the right of gays and lesbians to marry -- two positions we reject. He supports the war in Iraq, whereas we see this nation's interests better served by a prompt and orderly withdrawal of U.S. forces. But the Arizona senator's conservatism is, if not always to our liking, at least genuine. It reflects his fundamental individualism, spanning his distrust of big government, his support for immigration reform and his insistence on a sound American foreign policy.

And the endorsement of the LA Times means exactly what? This is just Tartuffery.

By August, they will be accusing McCain of being mentally unstable because he undoubtedly uses Viagra.

It's as if the Union-Leader endorsed Obama, praising his "fresh face and new ideas, his ability to fuse hope and his past ethnic experience into a groundbreaking verdant growth of political action".

Pardon me, but that and $0.41 will buy you a stamp.
