I opened the paper and almost went into cardiac arrest.
Recovering, I could only wonder what happened to Sandra Doorley in her endorsement interview.
Mr. Taylor's outstanding qualifications and leadership tower above most of his contemporaries in political life. Recently we noted,
When a Republican candidate is overwhelmingly qualified and intelligent, and usually when there's something a little underwhelming about the Dem, then sometimes the RBA under its current leadership and the D&C will endorse the R, after agonizing debate, which they'll often reference when making their announcement.True to form, this morning's editorial said, "The board reached this endorsement decision after a vigorous and angst-filled internal discussion." I'll bet.
We think the same explanation applies to the paper's unexpected endorsement of Maggie Brooks for re-election as County Executive: the overwhelmingly qualified and capable versus the underwhelming opponent.
Credit to the Democrat and Chronicle for accepting the evidence of its own eyes and ears.
