THE STUPID SEASON It must be upon us.

Katharine Seelye and Michael Falcone venture an unprovable assertion in the sixth paragraph of their story in today's Times:

Pundits generally perceived Mrs. Clinton as winning the debate point for highlighting her experience and at the same time suggesting that Mr. Obama was inexperienced.
Cloaking a personal judgment in the language of "pundits generally perceived" is classic, ugly campaign reporting.

And it's only going to get worse from here.
