When you put it that way...

Smack dab in the middle of an otherwise dull political horserace story about the state of play of governorships in the midterm elections, the NY Times' Adam Nagourney throws in this gem:
As Mr. Bush showed in Ohio and Florida, having a friendly governor can be critical in close general elections.

What I love about that sentence is the way it gives every partisan a reason to hate Nagourney. Democrats can criticize him for deploying an oblique understatement when much more could be said. Republicans can take issue with the subtle introduction of bias.
