I just had an interesting e-mail from a friend. It’s got a good explanation for why do the Republicans do X. I always get this question, “Why don’t the Republicans do X or why do the Republicans do X,” or whatever, and this makes a lot of sense. “The Republican leadership is still obsessed with getting their message out to the old media.” That’s who they think they have to impress. In order to be covered and reported on, they think they have to go through the ABCs, CBSs, NBCs, the New York Times, Washington Posts of the world, and that’s for whom they tailor their messages. It’s been a habit, it’s been something that they’ve had to live with for a long time, and they haven’t been able to break the habit.
