We got the Timezzzz...zzzzzz....



What is the sound of one hand clapping? This is very weird. The candidate--never mind which one, it could be any candidate--just announces he won the endorsement of the LA Times--to a half-packed room of Neighborhood Council types in Highland Park--and nobody cheers. One lonely soul tries to put his hands together for two claps, but pulls back immediately. As a matter of fact, the announcement only seems to make the room, well, nervous.

I take this not as a slap in the face of whomever this candidate might be, but of the former fishwrap of record.
