Analysis:

No newspaper that endorsed John Kerry in 2004 has endorsed John McCain in 2008.

Twelve newspapers that endorsed Bush in 2004 have endorsed Barack Obama in 2008.

The circulation of the Obama endorsers in about 7 times greater than the circulation of the McCain endorsers.

The gap of 66 newspaper endorsements to 18 is a historic gap.

McCain received 4 endorsements from papers that didn’t endorse in 2004. The Baltimore and The Washington D.C. Examiners are free rags that weren’t even around in 2004. The Tampa Tribune’s editor is Janet Coats, best known for endangering all of our lives by drunken driving. The Mountain Valley News is some little podunk crap rag that is mostly used to soak up vomit on bar room floors.

At least two of the newspapers endorsing McCain are first written in crayon before being typeset.

The Union Leader is notorious for its historically racist editorials, and personal vendettas. They would endorse anyone…and I mean ANYONE (insert historically demonized person here) if they were registered as a Republican.

The Boston Herald is about as credible as information written in the snow with urine. You don’t know who the heck wrote it, but you know it’s dirty, and really shouldn’t touch it.
