Pennsylvania governor sticks by embattled Lt. Governor

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette...

Even though Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll makes occasional malaprops and mistakes in judgment, Gov. Ed Rendell says he'll stick with her when he runs for re-election next year.

Asked yesterday if she'll be his running mate on the Democratic ticket in 2006, Rendell said, "I have no reason to expect differently."

Rendell told a state Capitol news conference that as lieutenant governor, Knoll takes her job seriously and "has conducted herself in office with dignity. A lot of people have been touched by the fact she is a caring and sensitive individual."...

She has been deluged with criticism in e-mails and Web logs around the nation for showing up uninvited at the funeral for a Marine who was killed while on military duty in Iraq....

Some Goodrich family members complained that Knoll said "our government" is against the war in Iraq, where Goodrich was killed while on duty July 10.

In a statement Monday, however, Knoll said she strongly supports what American troops are doing to fight terrorism.

Rendell said state government has no position on the war but strongly supports the efforts of U.S. soldiers and reservists to free Iraqis from oppression.

Well, that's what passes for “news” in Liberal papers. Normally such a slanted article would be considered an OpEd. The good news is, it'll be a whole lot easier to put a Republican in that office now.
