Saying that outgoing U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-San Francisco) “doesn’t display enough intellectual firepower”, the “editors at the biggest newspaper on the West Coast, who were expected to endorse Sen. Barbara Boxer in her primary campaign“:
The left-leaning Los Angeles Times on Friday declined to offer endorsements in all Democratic and Republican primaries for governor and Senate, saying the races have been undermined by politics and money.
But the newspaper’s decision to sit on the sidelines for the Boxer race could prove to be the most damaging of all, given the newspaper’s criticism of the three-term senator.
“On the Democratic side, we find that we’re no fans of incumbent Barbara Boxer,” the newspaper said in an editorial Friday. “She displays less intellectual firepower or leadership than she could.”
Boxer displaying “less intellectual firepower or leadership than she could”?!?! Now, that’s the understatement of the year.
