    I thought they already endorsed Mr. Obama.  Wasn't there a diary about that this past week?

      They did an off the record phone interview with him to decide their endorsement but they were clearly bullshitting.  They used the fact that it was off the record to try to make him look bad, like he was stonewalling the public because it had been off the record.  So the campaign just went ahead and released the transcript without any comment because, of course, it was a fine interview.  It smelled like there was hostility from the start.  It was a real Fox kind of move.

      If they haven't been bought out in the past several years, I have no idea what the hell happened to them.  Bad drugs?  Someone blackmailing them?  It was a nearly insane endorsement if you care to read it.  Like something out of the Onion.  

      When truth is only a matter of opinion, advantage goes to the liars.
