Establishment Newspaper Endorses Establishment Candidates For Mayor

Two Endorsements - Quinn and Lhota -
To the surprise of no one, the foremost newspaper of the establishment the New York Times has endorsed the most establishment status quo candidate of any party in the race for mayor, Chris Quinn. 

I enjoy reading the times but we should all stop kidding ourselves that it is anything approaching a "liberal" newspaper.  It is the voice of a firmly entrenched, socially moderate establishment.  Progressive on women's issues, gay rights, racism, religion . . .but hawkish on foreign policy and deferential to power.
