Message Control
Kevin Drum makes a nice catch today. This is Michael Wolff in a Vanity Fair piece:
The one constant I've observed, in 27 years as an on-again, off-again political reporter, is that Republicans return reporters' calls and Democrats don't....[Message control] is part of the DNA which makes Republicans return a reporter's calls -- and not grudgingly but eagerly (in contrast, you should hear the impatient and dismissive tone of the Democrats when you call them up).
If true, Democrats need to be drawn and quartered.
