Arnold? Bob Noel?
I've often disagreed with endorsements in the past, most notably I thought The Indy was wack endorsing in the '92 Primaries one William Jefferson Clinton (an opinion long since abandoned).
In practice, our endorsements are exceedingly prescient, with a record of influence and accuracy unmatched in Santa Barbara County (although Cap'n Pat McElroy of City Firefighters mistakenly thinks otherwise).
According to sources, calls to The Independent switchboard Thursday evinced a decidedly anti-Arnold sentiment and blustering disappointment over the freebie's Election recommendations.
The source of the Noel disgust was primarily centered around the Publisher's office, and some were heard to portray Noel as a grand-standing, self-promoting, anti-sports dilettante who is long on wind and posture, but short on cooperation, participation, and work ethic.
What do our readers think? Let me know. (Hat Tip to L.H.)
