Crawford mayor supports Kerry

According to an article in today’s Times, the mayor of Crawford, Texas, where President Bush has his ranch, is a Democrat and a Kerry supporter. The article also mentions a Crawford newspaper, the Lone Star Iconoclast, that has endorsed Senator Kerry. Here’s a link to that editorial and an equally interesting follow-up article to the publication of the editorial. And lastly, while you’re at the Iconoclast’s site, read the letters to the editor, which present an interesting cross-section from both sides of the (unfortunate) divide.

One of the questioners in last week’s debate asked President Bush why he had never vetoed a spending bill. Another article from today’s Times made me recall the president’s answer: "I haven't vetoed any spending bills because we work together". I assume this means the negotiating process is so smooth that by the time bills come to his desk for signature, all the wrinkles have been ironed out. Decide for yourself.
