Holy Crap! Son-of-a-bitch! You ready for this? You had better sit down.
The Watertown Daily Times has endorsed a Democrat in the New York State 23rd. Congressional district race. Yes a Democrat! A donkey! Someone other than a Republican!
I am speechless. What do I say next after 60 years of my ragging on and my teasing of the Watertown Daily Times editors for breathing nothing other than elephant breath.
That's right, they are endorsing Bill Owens. It has been there on the WatertownDailyTimes.com site for hours now, with no retraction. They even said:
"The Watertown Daily Times initially endorsed Ms. Scozzafava as the best-qualified candidate in the race. We still think she is. However, in suspending her campaign she released her supporters' commitment to her. That left voters to choose between Mr. Owens and Mr. Hoffman.
Of the two, Bill Owens is by far the superior and only choice.....
The Times endorses Bill Owens for Congress."
I am going outside now and get some exercise, clear my head and lower my blood pressure. Then I am coming back in to check the net, verify that this Times endorsement is not just a dream and then continue with my thesis that Jefferson's Leaning Left.
