Why the Press Likes McCain More Than Romney
According to Grand Moff Texan, a commenter at Crooked Timber:
Atrios excerpted Tucker Carlson’s book Politicians, Partisans, and Parasites as follows:McCain ran an entire presidential campaign aimed primarily at journalists. He understood that the first contest in a presidential race is always the media primary. He campaigned hard to win it. To a greater degree than any candidate in thirty years, McCain offered reporters the three things they want most: total access all the time, an endless stream of amusing quotes, and vast quantities of free booze.
Meanwhile, McCain is looking a little too much like an example of a Liberal Fascist for my taste.
