Anchorage Daily News Endorses Obama

The Alaska newspaper of record, the Anchorage Daily News, endorsed Obama for President:

Sen. McCain describes himself as a maverick, by which he seems to mean that he spent 25 years trying unsuccessfully to persuade his own party to follow his bipartisan, centrist lead. Sadly, maverick John McCain didn't show up for the campaign. Instead we have candidate McCain, who embraces the extreme Republican orthodoxy he once resisted and cynically asks Americans to buy for another four years.

It is Sen. Obama who truly promises fundamental change in Washington. You need look no further than the guilt-by-association lies and sound-bite distortions of the degenerating McCain campaign to see how readily he embraces the divisive, fear-mongering tactics of Karl Rove. And while Sen. McCain points to the fragile success of the troop surge in stabilizing conditions in Iraq, it is also plain that he was fundamentally wrong about the more crucial early decisions. Contrary to his assurances, we were not greeted as liberators; it was not a short, easy war; and Americans -- not Iraqi oil -- have had to pay for it. It was Sen. Obama who more clearly saw the danger ahead.

THANK GOD, Anchorage Daily News PROVES LOGIC LIVES IN ALASKA!

1. JUST BECAUSE SHE'S FROM HERE DOES NOT MEAN WE BACK HER. BUT THIS ELECTION WAS AN EYE-OPENER; WE'LL PRESS THE EJECT BUTTON FOR THE GOVERNOR'S SEAT AS SOON AS SHE GETS HOME(SIDE NOTE: "THE DRESS DOES NOT MAKE THE MAN (OR WOMAN, IN THIS CASE)!
2. JOHN MCCAIN THOUGHT BECAUSE HE "SERVED", AMERICA "OWES" HIM THE PRESIDENCY... (SIDE NOTE: MCCAIN NEVER PROVED A BRIGHT STUDENT OR LEADER & COST MILLIONS OF DOLLAR FOR BEING ERRATIC HIS ENTIRE LIFE). WELL, THANKS FOR SERVING, BUT DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH ANY LONGER: THERE ARE SO MANY DESERVING, GRACIOUS AND HUMBLE SERVANTS OF THE NATION IN EVERY HOSPITAL, SCHOOL, BUSINESS, PUBLIC SERVICE AND SO MANY OTHER PLACES. BUT NO TEACHER, FIREFIGHTER, POLICEMAN, MANAGER, CEO, JANITOR OR EMPLOYEE OF ANY LEVEL THINKING THAT AMERICA OWES THEM THE WHITE HOUSE.
TAKE-HOME LESSON FOR POOR MCCAIN: SERVING IN WARS ABROAD IS JUST AS NOBLE AS ANY OTHER PROFESSION IN THE LAND.
