Well, one thing the Guardian has, mercifully, done, uh, right….is abandoned its effort to pester the voters of Clark County, Ohio into voting for John Kerry. Under the circumstances the wisest thing for the paper’s writers to do would be to run from the scene of their humiliation and blame the whole thing on, oh I don’t know, the Daily Telegraph. Unwisely, however, they are following that aforementioned strategy, digging a deeper hole. The indefatigable Scott Burgess has more here.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised. When it comes to the subject of George W. Bush the poor old Guardian has, I’m afraid, simply gone mad. Of course, it’s quite possible for sane people to disagree with Dubya, and disagree strongly (although stiletto boy John Edwards apparently does not think the same of voters who don’t choose Kerry) but read a Guardian piece like this one here,and it’s difficult not to conclude that the writer is badly in need of a straitjacket, a sedative and a nice cup of tea.
