Kerry gets mugged again

kerryIn November 2006, I wrote about this file photo of Sen. John Kerry. Its frequent appearance in The News & Observer drew criticism from readers who found it unflattering.

The Kerry mug, which is nearly five years old, appeared again today on page 2B of the N&O and in the online version of the story. As I said then, file mugs are hard to kill. This one is like a zombie.
