John Deeth Blog: Register Fallon endorsement may be Boswell's price for not debating

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

It seems like a surprise on the surface, but the Des Moines Register
endorsed Ed Fallon Tuesday in the 3rd Congressional District, over
incumbent Leonard Boswell. Why alienate an incumbent who, according to
all public polls, is likely to win re-nomination by a two to one
margin? Let me help you think like journalists. We've got this weird
mix of cynicism and idealism, always looking for the motivations
behind seemingly straightforward moves, yet still wishing for the Mr.
Smith Goes To Washington vision of how government and politics are
really supposed to work. Think John Stewart meets Jimmy Stewart, and
you'll get the idea.
