The Staunton News Leader is not one of my daily reads. Here is a reason why. Within this brief editorial, we learn that Garrison Keillor once said something remotely nice about Richard Nixon, Russ Potts is the face of reality (and he's a real Republican), and that the election is about "transportation, education and health care."
Any newspaper that uses Keillor as a source for old-fashioned Republican values...that holds the Other Candidate up as a pillar of truth...and believes the Great Issues of the Day are what drive the bulk of voters to the polls...doesn't even rise to the level of fish wrap.
And all this time, I thought the Daily Press and Roanoke Times had cornered the market on idiocy. Their stranglehold has been broken.
