dept. of upcoming elections v.1

In widely-circulated news that might fend off criticism from a certain liberal alt-weekly, the Seattle Times turns against their base in an endorsement of John Kerry for president:

Four years ago, this page endorsed George W. Bush for president. We cannot do so again — because of an ill-conceived war and its aftermath, undisciplined spending, a shrinkage of constitutional rights and an intrusive social agenda. The Bush presidency is not what we had in mind. [s.t.]

Like many Kerry supporters, the editorial seems to come more from a position of anti-Bush than pro-Kerry; but I guess an endorsement is an endorsement even if it isn’t glowing.

To see the candidate for yourself, shell out $1,000 for dinner at the Westin tonight, or make the trek South to catch him at a public rally at the Tacoma Dome tomorrow at 9:30 am. Whether it’s worth a grand to avoid Tacoma is your call.
