    But politicians seem to forget that a free and open press is what keeps them honest and the people informed.
    I think politicians know all too well the media can turn on them. It's why they have media offices and talking points on the tip of their tongue. It's why Rand Paul fled the scene when confronted by someone he couldn't control.

    GOP 2014 strategy -- Hire clowns, elephants, and a ringmaster and say "a media circus" has emerged and blame Democrats for lack of progress. Have pundits agree that "both sides are to blame" and hope the public will stay home on election day.
