[US Politics] The NY Daily News rightfully rips the NY Post for yesterday's embarassing front page:

Not since the Chicago Daily Tribune proclaimed "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN," in the 1948 presidential election, has there been such a colossal flub. Leave it to the New York Post to further tarnish its shoddy reputation with yesterday's front-page "exclusive" declaring John Kerry had picked Dick Gephardt as his running mate.
The goof recalled the Post's "BUSH WINS!" front page the day after the 2000 presidential election — weeks before the Supreme Court decided the contest. It also brought back the tabloid's wild pitch of last October. Though the Yankees beat the Red Sox in the playoffs, the Post ran an editorial lamenting the Bombers' loss.
