Which of the following three claims are true?

1) John Kerry is one of the if not the most consistently liberal Senators, even more consistently liberal than (nasty music here) Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy.

2) John Kerry is a major flip-flopper who changes his positions 180 degrees faster than the Car Talk hosts can change a flat tire.

3) I dunno about Nos. 1 or 2, but I do know that they both can't be true.

Answer, of course: #3.

And yet, folks, aren't these the two versions of spin the Bush-Cheney WMD (Wistful for Major Distortions) campaign against the Senator?

Spin away if you must, fellas. But at least try to make sure the spin itself is something more than the most consistently conservative flip-flop of all time. It's insulting.
