This just in...

The Anchorage Daily News has an Op/Ed piece in complete support of Obama for president. Interesting. I assume that means that the paper is officially endorsing Obama, since I don't see any byline or other name attached to the column. This is good because an argument that I have heard many times from McCain/Palin supporters is that she is "so wildly popular in Alaska, and they know her best so they must be right." Well, that appears to be true, and they don't so much like her any more, or maybe they never did.

Here's an appetizer.

"Yet despite her formidable gifts, few who have worked closely with the governor would argue she is truly ready to assume command of the most important, powerful nation on earth. To step in and juggle the demands of an economic meltdown, two deadly wars and a deteriorating climate crisis would stretch the governor beyond her range. Like picking Sen. McCain for president, putting her one 72-year-old heartbeat from the leadership of the free world is just too risky at this time."
