On Wisconsin recall elections, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial page has its cake and eats it, too

From a cognitively dissonant editorial in the Sunday Crossroads section of today's paper:

We opposed the recalls and still think they were a waste of time and millions of dollars, but if the narrower GOP margin forces a more bipartisan atmosphere, that's not a small matter.

What do you mean by "if," kemo sabe?

For clarity, I would have edited the above editorial passage down to this:

We opposed the recalls and still think they were a waste of time, but it could very well turn out that they weren't a waste of time. Yes, we now see we were very probably wrong, but this is the best face we can put on it.
