Mike Myer reflects on the Alabama special election
Mike Myer begins his Saturday column on Roy Moore in today's Wheeling Intelligencer by comparing the results of the recent senatorial election in Alabama with last year’s presidential election. He concludes:
Clearly, about half the staunch GOP supporters in Alabama were unable to hold their noses and vote for Moore. The sexual harassment . . .
From today's Intelligencer: a collection of half-truths, no truths, and disingenuousness (a typical Saturday opinion page)
The lead editorial implores the Republicans to keep fighting to replace Obamacare
Of course we learn (without evidence) in the editorial how Obamacare is universally hated, "choking" state budgets, and has all sorts of horror stories that everyone (including Democrats) have heard. That's what the editorial tells us but the most . . .
If you've read them, you can probably skip this post. Here are the shorter versions of three day's worth of anti-Clinton editorials.

That didn't take long

Now that the Republicans are in control, the adjectives have . . .
The locals "newspapers" abandon Kasich and embrace Cruz
Mike Myer and the editorial writers probably aren't going to admit it but they've given up on John Kasich. If the locals still thought he had a chance they would not have printed Jonah Goldberg's column on Sunday:
Kasich Overstays His Welcome in GOP Race
