. . . Barack Obama in a landslide.

We’ve gotten some criticism from Republicans for running more pro-Obama letters than ones for John McCain. But this morning’s e-mail shows why that sometimes happens.

Naturally, we want to run some letters Tuesday about the Friday night debate. But of the 14 debate-related letters we’ve received, not a single one was pro-McCain.

We’ll run a few of the pro-Obama letters Tuesday, but if we ran all 14, we’d catch all sorts of heat from McCain supporters.

As it is, we’ll probably get some calls complaining that we didn’t run any pro-McCain letters. But we can’t run ‘em if we don’t get ‘em.
