Yay! It's Endorsement Week at the Strib! And once again, we here at KAR will be tracking the Strib's endorsements to see just how reliably left-wing the editorial board is (a quick bit of advice: this is not the sort of thing you should be betting on).
It's a whole new ballgame for 2007 after this past summer's bloodletting at the paper culled some of the more droolingly intense moonbats from the board's herd. Plus, it's an off year election, so you never know what odd choices will present themselves to our brave endorsers. But then again "odd choices" is nearly synonymous with "DFLic Party". Last year's final tally is here.
Yesterday, the Strib took up the Anoka-Hennepin school levy. Sadly, there can be but one outcome:
Voters should maintain and expand their earlier investment by supporting the current levy request on the Nov. 6 ballot.
DFLic - 1
GOP - 0
Today the Strib looks at the moonbat cesspool otherwise known as the St. Paul City Council:
First Ward: Montgomery (DFLic)
Second Ward: Dave Thune (DFLian)
Third Ward: Pat Harris (DFLish)
Fourth Ward: Russ Stark (DFLtopian)
Fifth Ward: Lee Helgen (DFLese)
Sixth Ward: Dan Bostrom (DFLer)
Seventh Ward: Kathy "Kathy Lantry is a Turd" Lantry (DFLory)
But wait! - you're saying - one of those races is unopposed and in two of the races both candidates are DFLians! Isn't this a bit like shooting fish in a barrel?
My answer is twofold:
1. With the Strib, it's always like shooting fish in a barrel. Do I need to remind you about last year again?
2. In the immortal words of Rush: "If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice." Nothing's preventing the Strib from not endorsing anyone. I look at those two monoparty races and the unopposed seat and I think to myself "none of the above," or better yet, "write in Mitch Berg's cat." The Strib thinks "ORGASM!"
And with that, we look forward to the Strib's next ejaculate-drenched round of endorsements. Our score stands at:
DFLian - 8
GOP - 0
