Is that endorsement really something to brag about?

We've already heard advertisements touting Anne Northup's endorsement by the Herald-Leader and Courier-Journal. Those endorsements came as no surprise. Those papers didn't endorse Fletcher in 2003.

But are they really anything to brag about? Both newspapers have a leftist editorial philosophy, a secular humanist outlook bordering on socialistic.

The Herald-Leader is even so kind to tell us each year why that newspaper endorses candidates.

We like this line: "The board selects, by consensus or vote, which candidates more closely share its visionf or this community, state and nation."

That means that the Herald-Leader endorses the most liberal candidates.

Do conservative Republican voters in this state REALLY want to vote for the candidate the Herald-Leader touts as basically the most liberal?

We didn't think so.

Keep in mind the MOST Republican Papers in the State have also Endorsed Anne. Perhaps all of these papers together found a common wisdom...the commonwealth is in desperate need of new leadership...whether that leadership be Democrat or Republican.

Northern Kentucky Papers have endorsed Anne. Danville has endorsed Anne (I can't think of a more Republican Paper than these).

Jeff,

"We" represents the multiple personalities of the publisher of the Kentucky Pachyderm. Hopefully one of those personalities supports Anne Northup and will be the one in charge when "they" go to vote.

The Lexington Herald Leader most certainly did endorse Ernie Fletcher in the Primary...you need to get your facts straight.

You are so wrong. The Herald Leader has endorsed Fletcher in the past...not today. The Enquirer no longer endorsed Ernie Fletcher...but they did before. The Danville Messenger has ALWAYS endorsed Fletcher...but not now. Not everyone proceeds through life with blinders on. Some of us see this man and this campaign for what it really is...an administration that has gone back to the way things have been done for generations.

If either or both papers endorsed Fletcher this time K=Pac would be shouting it from the rooftops.

Didn't the Herald endorse Steve Nunn over Fletcher in 2003?

We use "we" because this blog is a collaboration of several individuals. And besides, have you never heard of "the editorial 'we?'" Newspapers use "we" when they write editorials. Given the fact that this blog is something akin to a newspaper editorial board, the "we" fits.
