Two interesting things this morning:
Michael Brodkorb is reporting that the Star Tribune has endorsed Norm Coleman. It's not on the Star Tribune website yet, but Brodkorb found an early Sunday edition that had it. If one of the most reliably leftist editorial pages in the country can't countenance an endorsement for Al Franken, that should tell you something.
I know, I know, we're beating a dead horse with the constant complaints about media bias. It's like complaining about the amount of nitrogen in the air. Still, I want to call this piece to your attention. Michael Malone's piece is full of good stuff, but here's the money quote, at least from my perspective:
The absolute nadir (though I hate to commit to that, as we still have two weeks before the election) came with Joe the Plumber. Middle America, even when they didn’t agree with Joe, looked on in horror as the press took apart the private life of an average person who had the temerity to ask a tough question of a Presidential candidate. So much for the Standing Up for the Little Man, so much for Speaking Truth to Power, so much for Comforting the Afflicted and Afflicting the Comfortable, and all of those other catchphrases we journalists used to believe we lived by.
All I can hope is this: if Obama is elected, it turns out to be worth it for all the people in the MSM who've become his Praetorian Guard. In poker parlance, a lot of them are now all in.
