A man from THE WASHINGTON POST appreciatively details why McCain deserves to be declared the winner of the debate.
My distaste for the blatant radical partisanism of WaPo finally caused me to cancel my subscription about a year ago. I confess though to look at it on-line, and for months now I have noticed that Cilizza is a singular exception to the dreary juvenile scratching of WaPo analyists. Cilizza as far as I can tell is no conservative; but he is a fresh, balanced, and fair journalist and usually worth reading.
My prediction: either the Post's other writers begin to imitate his objectivity, or -- more likely -- he will accept better pay and higher status at some other paper or possibly TV. I have seen him once with Lehrer during the GOP convention.
