This is classic. The uber-Liberal San Francisco Chronicle has chosen not to endorse a Senate candidate this year. One would automatically assume that a Liberal paper would endorse the incumbent Liberal, Barbara Boxer. Nope.

In fact, the Chronicle had some particularly harsh words for Boxer, like:
"Boxer has failed to distinguish herself during her 18 years in office. There is no reason to believe that another six-year term would bring anything but more of the same uninspired representation."
"Boxer's most famous moments on Capitol Hill have not been ones of legislative accomplishment, but of delivering partisan shots."
"Boxer has had the good fortune of running against "inept, underfunded" or fringe opponents in the Senate race, but this time her opponent -- Fiorina -- "is proving to be articulate, well-funded and formidable." 
"Boxer's campaign, playing to resentment over Fiorina's wealth, is not only an example of the personalized pettiness that has infected too much of modern politics, it is also a clear sign of desperation."
Talk about pettiness! They praise Carly Fiorina's campaign and acknowledge her effectiveness but refuse to endorse her anyway! In conclusion, the Chronicle says:
"It is a dismal choice between an ineffective advocate for causes we generally support and a potentially strong advocate for positions we oppose. Neither merits our endorsement for the U.S. Senate."
