Bang head here

The Western Star editorializes on Thursday:

We realize it’s difficult for some politicians to walk away from all the excitement of running the show and being in the public eye, but these three and those like them should realize they had their shot at making a difference in this province.

They should let those in charge now do what they think best ... without all the harping from has-beens in the cheap seats.
The paper's opinion has already been savaged, and properly so, here and here... to say nothing of the comments on the editorial itself and elsewhere on teh internets, but, remarkably, this is only one of the two stupidest editorials that the Western Star has published in the last nine months.

And not necessarily the very stupidest of the two.

Is there something in the water cooler? (Seriously — water cooler? maybe?)

This corner, for one, is looking forward to one of next week's Western Star editorials, which will roundly criticize Yvonne Jones, Roger Grimes, and possibly Clyde Wells, Steve Neary, Ed Roberts, Joey Smallwood, Jack Pickersgill, and Sir Robert Bond, for the appointment of Elizabeth Matthews to the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board.
