In the Bag

It is clear the press is going to be in the bag for Pete Peterson for Secretary of State.  He's "not a politician" and a "reformer" (whatever that is supposed to mean) and "really wants to do the job" and is "different" mostly because he is a Republican versus all those Democrats. 

But I did find one irony in a recent U-T article on the contest:

Even though he's a media favorite, Schnur received fewer votes than indicted Sen. Leland Yee, who withdrew from the election, but whose name remained on the ballot.

Maybe the GOP needs to ask the mainstream media to stop being so helpful.
