Not that they don't appreciate the job Mr. Bush is doing in Washington, D.C., but there's a whole lotta brush that needs clearin' in Crawford. From the AP wire, via Zemblan patriot B.K.:
A tiny weekly newspaper that bills itself as President Bush's hometown paper has endorsed John Kerry for president, saying the Massachusetts senator will restore American dignity.UPDATE: Our esteemed colleague Richard Cranium of the All Spin Zone has posted the entire editorial, and we are pleased to report that it is a steel-toed ass-kicker. So go read it already.
The Lone Star Iconoclast, which has a weekly circulation of 425, said in an editorial dated Sept. 29 that Texans should rate the candidates not by hometown or political party, but by where they intend to take the country.
"Four items trouble us the most about the Bush administration: his initiatives to disable the Social Security system, the deteriorating state of the American economy, a dangerous shift away from the basic freedoms established by our founding fathers, and his continuous mistakes regarding Iraq," the editorial said.
