The Corner

Post Haste, cont.

An e-mail illustrates the perils of liberal editorializing:

The Post’s circulation is now 600,799–that disgrace of an editorial on Ken Cuccinelli being an “embarassment” to the great Commonwealth of Virginia if he’s elected AG sent me over the edge, esp after “thesisgate” and comments about the “clownish antics” of Bob Marshall (who happens to be my delegate and a personal acquaintance).

When asked why I was cancelling the Post I made it quite clear why.

The Washington Times just picked up a new daily subscriber.

UPDATE: By the way, my local paper — the News & Messenger, which serves Prince William County in Virginia – endorsed Cuccinelli. The editors are not uniformly Republican; they’ve been bipartisan in their choices.
