New York Post Endorses John McCain

The New York Post has enthusiastically endorsed John McCain (h/t Dan Egers, Vince Tabone and Queens County for McCain). Thus, at least two of New York's leading newspapers, the New York Post and the New York Sun, are supporting him (I haven't seen a Sun endorsement yet but I'll eat my all-weather tires if they don't). The Post writes:

"THE Post today enthusiastically urges the election of Sen. John S. McCain as the 44th president of the United States.

"McCain's lifelong record of service to America, his battle-tested courage, unshakeable devotion to principle and clear grasp of the dangers and opportunities now facing the nation stand in dramatic contrast to the tissue-paper-thin résumé of his Democratic opponent..."

In an article today linked to the editorial, the Post notes that "Big Mac" has gotten a "big bounce":

"WASHINGTON - John McCain landed the post convention boost he and his pistol-packin' running mate were shooting for - an 11 point turnaround that gives him his biggest lead over Barack Obama since early May.

"The Republican candidate has the support of 48 percent of likely voters compared with 45 percent for Obama, according to a Gallup Daily Tracking Survey released yesterday.

"While McCain's lead is still within the poll's margin of error, the figures represent a significant jump for McCain, who lagged eight points behind Obama in the same tracking poll before the GOP convention."

We have yet to learn why most of the 20th century media is so passionately in support of Senator Obama. It is encouraging to learn that there is now some diversity in the print media. The Post has made the obviously right choice.

Too bad McCain thinks you're stupid.

Tsk, tsk. I keep posts like this up to show those of us who don't read left wing blogs how lame our competition is.
