Chicago Is Why I Just Grin Like A Clown
Midwestern rube Cap’n Ed Morrissey is all “Jeezy pete, you guys! Even Chicago is turning on the black guy.”:
It’s one thing for John Fund, Allahpundit, or me to speculate on whether Barack Obama will bother running for a second term. It’s another when one of the editors of a home-town newspaper tells a President to pull out. Stephen Chapman of the Chicago Tribune’s editorial board writes in today’s paper that it’s time for the battered champ to hang ‘em up:
Really? A guy who has written for The American Spectator, The Weekly Standard, Reason, and National Review thinks that Obama should step aside? Who could have seen that coming?
I’ve said repeatedly that I think a withdrawal by Obama is a low-probability event at best, and I still believe it to be a long shot. However, when the home-town papers are starting to make the call for retirement, it’s maybe not quite as much of a long shot as before.
Coming up next, Ed posts something that begins with “Even Fred Hiatt of the liberal Washington Post sez…”
Bonus: I had to go look for a pix of ole Cap’n Ed and, well, this has to be seen to be believed.
Sweet Jeebus…. Honestly, words fail.
