An Endorsement and a Slap

The TD editorial page endorses Del. Bill Janis. No great surprise. But in the more hotly contested race between Del. Brad Marrs and Katherine Waddell, the TD slaps both candidates upside the head:

Republican Brad Marrs has a penchant for grandstanding; his notorious fund-raising letter this summer indulged in a bashing inappropriate for his office and offensive to his constituency. Independent Katherine Waddell (a former Republican who says that if elected she will not caucus with the GOP) has failed to make a case for herself. Her pitiful stabs at specific issues are dumbfounding. One candidate will win; neither deserves to.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
