Dan Bartlett, the former White House communications director, tells Texas Monthly how he got the right-wing blogs to do his work for him.
I mean, talk about a direct IV into the vein of your support. It’s a very efficient way to communicate. They regurgitate exactly and put up on their blogs what you said to them. It is something that we’ve cultivated and have really tried to put quite a bit of focus on.
“Regurgitate,” indeed. If I had to repeat what the Bush White House was putting out without question, I’d barf, too.
