Sums up the feelings about elections 2008, doesn’t it?

Summer’s almost here…..we can now see the deer moving around in our back yard.

Every paper in the cuntry is carrying the Chile Earthquake.

Only in NY, they are still clomped on their prey: Are we going to let Paterson Govern? asks NY Times

In a vile article that makes me think of the old tired “racism”, (or is it post racism?) they write

At noon on Saturday, a group of New York political leaders and longtime friends of Mr. Paterson met to try to find ways to support the governor over the remaining 10 months of his term. The group, which included Representative Charles B. Rangel; the Rev. Al Sharpton; and the Senate president, Malcolm A. Smith, said their efforts had been made more difficult because of the calls from other Democrats for the governor to resign.

I wasn’t sure about the subtext until Harold Ford was also mentioned – see – we are supposed to infer that only black politicians with their own ethics problems support this guy while “democrats” (unnamed) would want him to resign. Oh, there is one very much named

Certainly the next month is likely to be dreary for the governor. Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo’s investigators plan to spend the next four weeks interviewing administration officials

There is of course no conflict of interest whatsoever here, because NY Times once declared

Now, Mr. Cuomo effectively has the blessing of the nation’s first black president to run against New York’s first black governor.

It is being Obama’s flunkies that gives them cover to wade into racism territory.

The theme song is repeated by Newsday, which would want us to pay for their content.

Meh, maybe when they have something original to say

In Albany, they seem off the meme and maybe somewhat PO’s by the strong-arming, judging by their headline

It seems the answer is in the hands of the Chicago mob.

“I have not talked to the president about this, but it’s safe to say that anybody that read these articles, believes at a minimum, he made the right decision.”

“These articles” only exist because of this

Reminds me of the 2008 campaigns where “scandals” were mailed to a subservient media then quoted as arguments “because they are in the media”

The one headline missing from all papers in the nation (that have been posted on Newseum as of now) is this one:

Obama signs one-year extension of Patriot Act
