Nick Confessore at The American Prospect Online directs us to a great post on Campaign Desk illustrating just how completely abritrary -- and inevitably self-contradictory -- the press's characterizations of a political candidate can be.

Some of the same pundits now routinely parrot the cliches that Kerry is boring and wooden.
