    Am I the only one who sees right through the Washington Post's editorial board thinly veiled attempt to commandeer the Mayoral election in their favor?! Utterly disgusted. Whatever happened to fair journalism?
    You give a tepid, at best, endorsement of a candidate who you write just yesterday is very likely inexperienced and unqualified. You then ask for three of the lower polling candidates to drop out of the race? You dangle the sensitive issue of race like its an innocuous issue in DC politics? Now you're trying to bully Ron Machen to make an indictment on Thompson beofre the 17th so that you can immediately spin it as an indictment of Mayor Gray? Shameful. And shameful for the City Paper as they are just as guilty.
