I remember reading in Sarah Palin's autobiography, Going Rogue, how she and her Vice-Presidential team were frustrated with the mysterious "headquarters" at the Republican National Committee in Washington, D.C. The "headquarters" primary function was to make sure everything worked according to a set plan, but that sometimes meant not changing the plan when they should have.
At least that was with a candidate for the Vice-Presidency of the United States, because the "headquarters" of 2011 isn't telling Sarah Palin what to do; but the main stream media.
It doesn't matter what is said or who said it, because the main stream media will unfailingly pick up the red phone and call President Barack Obama's reelection headquarters in Chicago for their summons, err, response to whatever was said. Some in the media are even writing "Chicago:" in their 2012 headlines now.
I'm getting a gut feeling that the main stream media isn't calling Chicago for the Obama campaign response, but for the party line in how liberals should address whatever Republican accusation was made that day, because the official Obama response usually becomes the media line within only minutes of Chicago's edict.
Am I thinking too outside the box, or have I struck the nail on the head?
What say you?
