NY Times Endorses Kerry

The sun rose in the East today and Set in the West. There were 12 hours of daylight, followed by darkness as the sun set. The New York Times endorsed a democrat. None of these merits a news headline, but the last one is at least worth a mention. Their ringing endorsement starts with:

"Senator John Kerry goes toward the election with a base that is built more on opposition to George W. Bush than loyalty to his own candidacy".

They go on to say that he has qualities that "could be the basis for a great chief executive".

Wow. Translation: We allow our hatred of Bush to drive our thinking to such an extent that whatever piece of driftwood that happens to get the democratic party's endorsement is fine for us. And maybe he has some things that might, in some alternate 12 dimensional universe near the Vega galaxy, be good qualities for a president. So don't feel too guilty voting for him. Especially if you are from the Vega galaxy.

They go on to say "He strikes us, above all, as a man with a strong moral core".

Oh boy. This is quite the statement. Is this a strong moral code because of, or in spite of, the following:

1)Admitting publicly that he met with the enemy in Paris while still in the armed forces and while the Vietnam war was still underway?(technically, I believe this is treason and is a capital crime).

2)having either a) been a war criminal, since he testified under oath to congress that he engaged in killing innocent civilians and other war crimes while in Nam, or b)lied to congress under oath if he did not in fact do these things.

These are surely the hallmarks of a strong moral compass.

The rest of the endorsement is what you would expect from the Times. The usual filtering of World events through their far left prism. The terrible detention of people at Guantanamo, the trampling of civil rights of Americans, etc. Hardly worth reading.

The message from the Times is clear. Anyone but Bush. If Lyndon LaRouche had the democratic nomination they would be endorsing him.
