#slapintheface

With endorsements like this who needs a slap in the face?

The New Hampshire Union Leader, a conservative newspaper, has endorsed Joe Biden with the following statement:

Joe Biden may not be the president we want, but in 2020 he is the president we desperately need. He will be a president to bring people together and right the ship of state…

…Our policy disagreements with Joe Biden are significant. Despite our endorsement of his candidacy, we expect to spend a significant portion of the next four years disagreeing with the Biden administration on our editorial pages…

And don’t forget this caveat emptor:

“* While Joe Biden is the clear choice for president, it would be a disservice to the country to send him to the White House without a backstop. We suggest splitting the ballot and electing a healthy dose of GOP senators and representatives. The best governance often comes through compromise. The civility of the Biden administration will help foster such compromise, but a blue wave would be nearly as disastrous for this country as four more years of Trump. It would result in a quagmire of big government programs that will take decades to overcome.

With endorsements like this, who needs a slap in the face?

Isn’t it funny that the media celebrates being less awful as a virtue.

It reminds us of this Punch cartoon.
