It's So Obvious, it Almost Pains Us to Say it


I know I'm supposed to take the election seriously and all, and I actually agree with their bottom line, but this New Yorker endorsement from "The Editors" made me laugh. Their solemn conclusion:

In a time of primitive partisanship, he has exhibited a fundamentally undogmatic temperament. In campaigning for America's mainstream restoration, Kerry has insisted that this election ought to be decided on the urgent issues of our moment, the issues that will define American life for the coming half century. That insistence is a measure of his character. He is plainly the better choice. As observers, reporters, and commentators we will hold him to the highest standards of honesty and performance. For now, as citizens, we hope for his victory.
