Everyone is buzzing about the Washington Post endorsing Creigh Deeds in the Democratic primary. But why is the editorial in today's paper?
Everyone knows the best way to bury news in Washington is to release it on Friday afternoon. Especially Friday before a holiday weekend. Most of Washington thinks about traffic on the Bay Bridge or I-95 to New York on the first Friday of the summer season.
It's good for Deeds to get the endorsement, but it could have had more power coming out next Tuesday when the world returns to work. Could have been written the same time as today's endorsement. Most editorial pages are done early so that group of writers can enjoy the weekend.
Let's see how much buzz the endorsement has for Deeds on Tuesday.
