Recycled Quickie: How is the Arizona Republic Like Charles Krauthammer?

I'm just going to go ahead and re-use this sentence from a few days ago:

Two words glaringly absent from his the Arizona Republic's "contrarian" endorsement which derides Obama mainly for his lack of experience: Sarah and Palin.

UPDATE: OK, I'm seeing a trend here. The AR also raised the spectre of an unchecked Nancy Pelosi. Perusing other McCain newspaper endorsements, I noticed that the OC's Press-Enterprise also derided Obama for his lack of experience, forgot to mention Sarah Palin, and raised the spectre of an unchecked Nancy Pelosi. The Cincinnati Enquirer, on the other hand, derided Obama for his lack of experience, forgot to mention Sarah Palin, and raised the spectre of an unchecked Nancy Pelosi. The San Diego Union-Tribune derided Obama for his lack of experience and forgot to mention Sarah Palin, but also forgot to raise the frightening spectre of an unchecked Nancy Pelosi (they must be kicking themselves!), as did the Bakersfield Californian, the Napa Valley Register, the Daily Sentinal and the Iowa Messenger, and many, many more.

What's with all these newspapers endorsing McCain, bashing Obama for his inexperience and then conspicuously omitting any mention of Sarah (most of them do, in fact, mention Joe Biden)? Must be some crazy oversight! How about that!

Reading that felt like perusing something from The Onion.

"If we don't mention her we're not hypocrites. Yay!"

They actually meant Palin when they said McCain, because they know that he'll be so overcome when he wins that he'll keel over then, and they didn't want to embarrass him.

Yeah, but Anchorage's newspaper (the largest circulation in Alaska) newspaper endorsed Obama.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh, my goodness! Looks like some editorial offices were visited by the Gannett Angel, who fluttered by & dropped "suggested" copy points like a gentle spring rain.

Why is everyone so afraid of an "unchecked" Nancy Pelosi? What the heck would she do, mandate bending over and taking it up the ass from every remaining republican? That's all she's been doing so far, so what's the big deal?
