Politico is running a story on how well Sarah Palin's media strategy is working.
In brief, that strategy seems to be:
- Avoid The Press
- Communicate Through Posting Online
While I am validated that Mrs. Palin has finally adopted my strategy, and pleased that the "mainstream media" are reporting on its effectiveness, I am a little troubled that Politico seems to miss the main benefits.
Allow me to break it down:
- Take hours to write only a few sentences - but boy are they beautiful!
- Let your team of minions copy edit after you finish - no more embarrassing factual or spelling mistakes!
- Never answering questions means never not knowing the answer!
Obviously, the superiority of this method cannot be in doubt. It seems certain that this trend will grow. I would not be surprised if in 10 years no American politician will even show their face in public.
