Now that's a shocker:

Sen. John Kerry has opened up an early lead in the number -- and potential impact -- of newspaper endorsements, according to E&P's exclusive tabulation covering the race for president.

Counting every editorial endorsement we know of, Kerry has won the backing of five daily newspapers, with a total daily circulation of 881,012.

President Bush has gotten the nod from four papers, with a total daily circulation of 323,743.

I'm curious, when's the last time a Republican won the "circulation" election?

I don't know, but I can tell you with absolute certainty that our local fish wrapper will endorse Kerry with great fanfare. Everyone will be shocked - shocked - at this move since the Curious-Urinal has never once endorsed a Republican for President in its entire history, including Lincoln.
