At least that's what conservatives always call the hometown paper here. (The Minneapolis Star - before it merged with the Minneapolis Tribune - was in fact named after the "socialist workers" star in the Commie logo.)
I have to admit that I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Strib, since they did endorse me when I ran for the state legislature. They probably figured that since I had no chance to win, I was the token conservative they could side with so they could prove to everyone that they actually were non-partisian. Yeah, right.
Anyway, I should also point out that it's a very, very, very small soft spot. And it does seem to get smaller every day.
Powerline does a great job here and here uncovering the fiasco of the Strib's editorial board attacking the Republicans for trying to get rid of the filibuster (in certain situations) while conveniently forgetting (and then denying) they endorsed the very same idea during the Clinton administration.
It just makes you shake your head, doesn't it? And they wonder why their circulation keeps dropping.
Reading between the lines of what I've read, I do believe that Badda-Blogger, Veritas, Veritatis Splendor, and Our Word all live in the same area, or at least have roots here. And my question to you all is - why do we put up with it?
Is it the weather?
