    "Half of writing history is hiding the truth."

    I'll bet Roger Ailes has that quote hanging in his office.

    For my own safety, I had to assume you were a bad guy with a gun. Sorry.

    •  What They're Far Too Little Credited For: (3+ / 0-)

      Half of both of those things happens in the original moment.

      I was struck from the very beginning of the Admin or let's say, shortly after once they realized they needed to restate everything Reagan said as soon as he said it: every message appeared to be aimed as much at the history books as at domestic immediate consumption. Often it seemed they were tossing aside the consequences of a message in the short term, to be sure it was in the record books for future use.

      I'm not satisfied we've seen the last of the purposes of that.

      It's probably the creepiest thing about that Admin in my memory.
