Austin-American Statesman Endorses Bush

I guess it was expected since they endorsed him in 2000, but I always hold out hope that newspaper people -- the ones who are supposed to be paying attention to the news -- will make the right -- and in this case, the only truly reasonable -- choice. But, as bad as it is to endorse Bush, this has got to be the most half-assed endorsement I've ever seen. They call on Bush to get rid of Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz . . like that's gonna happen. Basically, the Statesman endorses Bush but doesn't really endorse any of his programs, saying we should put a "brake" on the tax cuts. Well, at least we know who the journalistic whores are know. I'm canceling my subscription. From now on, I'll get my news from the Waco Tribune-Herald (which endorsed Kerry today), The Austin Chronicle (old reliable) and, oh yeah, The Lone Star Iconoclast (Bushie's hometown paper, endorsed Kerry). Send a letter to the Statesman.
