On Wednesday, the Yale Record — which boasts it is “America’s oldest college humor magazine” — gave Hillary Clinton a birthday present in a four-paragraph non-endorsement endorsement singing her praises as an “exemplary” public leader.

“In its 144-year history, The Yale Record has never endorsed a Democratic candidate for president. In fact, we have never endorsed any candidate for president,” the Oct. 26 article “The Yale Record Does Not Endorse Hillary Clinton” began.

“This is, in part, due to our strong commitment to being a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization,” explained the editorial board, adding that the Record “believes both candidates to be equally un-endorsable, due to our faithful compliance with the tax code.”

“In particular, we do not endorse Hillary Clinton’s exemplary leadership during her 30 years in the public eye,” the Record added. “We do not support her impressive commitment to serving and improving this country—a commitment to which she has dedicated her entire professional career. Because of unambiguous tax law, we do not encourage you to support the most qualified presidential candidate in modern American history, nor do we encourage all citizens to shatter the glass ceiling once and for all by electing Secretary Clinton on November 8.”

“The Yale Record has no opinion whatsoever on Dr. Jill Stein,” the editorial board concluded, referring to the Green Party’s nominee for the presidency.

Of course, voters at the New Haven, Conn., Ivy League institution are unlikely to be of any consequence to Mrs. Clinton’s expected runaway victory in the Nutmeg State. According to Real Clear Politics, the last poll conducted of Connecticut voters showed Mrs. Clinton enjoying a 15-point lead on Mr. Trump.
