fact versus opinion

The Washington Post has a revelation: Despite Bush Flip-Flops, Kerry Gets Label (

I can hardly wait to see what Howler has to say about this...

"Once such a popular perception becomes fixed, public opinion experts and strategists say, virtually every episode in the campaign is viewed through that prism, while facts that do not fit with existing assumptions -- such as Bush's history of policy shifts -- do not have much impact in the political debate. Why these impressions became so firmly fixed in the first place is a source of debate."
Apparently WaPo is mystified as to how people get attached to these popular perceptions.

And yet they still can't seem to get Kerry's $87B story right!!
