I Am Shocked!

Can you believe it?  The New York Times has endorsed Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election!

By the way, the last Republican they endorsed was Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956.  They also endorsed Thomas Dewey over Truman in 1948 and Wendell Wilkie over FDR in 1940.

Why shocked? Do you ever endorse candidates, or do you think it best to keep things like that private?

Sarcasm, Josh. Sarcasm.

Great allusion to a great movie:

Rick: How can you close me up? On what grounds?
Captain Renault: I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.
[aloud]
Captain Renault: Everybody out at once!

Ah, sorry I didn't pick up on it. It's difficult to pick up sarcasm when you don't know someone personally and it's written rather than spoken, but I'm following now.
