What a stunner - The Bulletin endorsed John McCain this morning.
The Eye's immediate impulse was to call circulation and cancel our subscription forthwith. Upon reflection, we decided not to do it because (a) it wouldn't accomplish anything except to vent our anger, (b) the endorsement is meaningless because the only people who pay attention to Bulletin endorsements would vote for McCain anyway and (c) the rest of the paper contains worthwhile news once in a while, although the idiotorial page has become nothing but right-wing vomit.
Therefore The Eye will continue to be a subscriber, but will never look at the idiotorial page again and will toss the Perspective section of the Sunday paper (including John Costa's weekly self-congratulatory column) into the recycling bin as soon as it arrives.
The late, lamented Editor Bob Chandler was a staunch Republican but he was a man of integrity and couldn't bring himself to endorse Ronald Reagan because he thought Reagan was an incompetent boob. The Eye is glad Bob didn't live to see the Bush presidency. It would've killed him.
Meanwhile, as The Bulletin idiotorial page was endorsing McCain, Colin Powell went on "Meet the Press" the morning to endorse Barack Obama. We'll see who carries more weight.
