Two governors, one a centrist Democrat, the other an increasingly conservative Republican, both with ballooning deficits and plummeting poll ratings -- yesterday's New York Times had articles about both.

Surprise, surprise: It wasn't the article about Gray Davis of California.
Then again, why shouldn't the Times praise the ever-more-Bush-like George Pataki? After all, last November it endorsed him.
Oh, that liberal media....
