Default 'Obama Wins!,' newspaper declares

'Obama Wins!,' newspaper declares

From CNN Chief National Correspondent John King

SANTA FE, New Mexico (CNN) – For The New Mexico Sun News it is either a major scoop or “Dewey Beats Truman” déjà vu 60 years later.

“Obama Wins!” is the headline of the edition on newsstands now, complete with “special collector’s edition” in red bold typeface.

The Sun News is a bi-monthly newspaper and its Oct 26-Nov 8 issue had to hit the streets, and the newsstands, before the election. So the editors decided to make a leap of faith and declare Democrat Barack Obama the winner.

In an article explaining their choice, the editors unabashedly wrote, “When it comes to calling the winner of a presidential election, everyone wants to be first. The New Mexico Sun News hereby claims that achievement.”

In its tongue-in-cheek style, the article went on to note the newspaper has a goal of reaching one million readers with each edition, but prints just 10,000 copies of each of its issues.

So, “each copy must be read by 100 different and distinct people. This places an enormous burden on our intrepid readers. However, it is a burden that we must insist you carry. So, please, read quickly, care for the physical condition of the paper and pass it on to your next chosen reader.”

The liberal leaning alternative newspaper ended by imploring its readers to get out and vote, “even if we did spoil the ending for you.”

This smells of cheese.

No-lose for the paper. Either they get to produce a Dewey Defeats Truman souvenir or they called it first.

John Kerry was proclaimed the winner several hours before the polls officially closed in the 2004 election by Dumb Dan and it was hilarious listening to him try to backpedal - albeit unsuccessfully.

I don't smell cheese - I smell rotten egg.

LOL! I'm sorry but "The Dan " was an arrogant ass. Not even arguable imo.
