Parting Shots

I thought I would enter into evidence one last example of the media’s distortion of John Kerry.  This shot is from Time Magazine’s end-of-the-year issue. 

To summarize my own thoughts, I can’t deny that Kerry, at times, is a man of two minds.  For much of the media to have so automatically adopted Karl Rove’s over-simplistic caricature of him, however, reflected poorly on the press, and did a disservice to the electorate.
