Republican Campaign Strategy ... More Bush/Rove Reliance on Bullshit & Lies ...
In any case, there is a story from today's Washington Post on press coverage of the campaigns. Amidst the back and forth about the truth or falsity of this or that charge I noticed this comment:
"John Feehery, a Republican strategist, said the campaign is entering a stage in which skirmishes over the facts are less important than the dominant themes that are forming voters' opinions of the candidates.
"The more the target New York Times and The Washington Post go after Sarah Palin, the better off she is, because there's a bigger truth out there and the bigger truths are she's new, she's popular in Alaska and she is an insurgent," Feehery said. "As long as those are out there, these little facts don't really matter."
