Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

17 New "Flip-Flops"
Today is "Super Sunday" for newspaper endorsements. Thankfully, Kerry did very well: 17 new papers endorsed Kerry after supporting Bush in 2000, bringing the total of Bush-to-Kerry "flip-floppers" to 28. Another setback for Bush: 3 newspapers that backed him in 2000 refused to back anyone in this election, including the Detroit news, which has never backed a Dem.
Bush has won the endorsement of just 2 newspapers that endorsed Gore.
Kerry leads Bush in endorsements 111-70, and in circulation 14.4 million - 8.6 million.
Kerry did lose one of the biggest prizes today, however, the Columbus Dispatch. This was probably the most sought-after endorsement in the country. At least they did say they were "less than enthused" about their choice. The Republican publisher won.
