The amazing radio show This American Life recently had a segment about the political process and how Republicans are more skilled at it. One of the things they said in the show is that Republicans are just more organized and on-message. Apparently every morning, a talking points memo goes out to influential Republicans at all levels of government: local, state, and federal, with the issues for the day and the language that the Republican strategists and leaders want people to use. This is why The Daily Show can do those segments where they show 15 different Republicans saying the exact same thing in the space of four hours. It seems funny to the show audience, but it’s actually a brilliant strategy. Most people only pay attention to the news and politics with 7% of their attention, so when they hear a bunch of people saying the same thing over and over, it starts to sink in.
