All Palin, all the time...

...even on NPR.

From Mike-istan:
From what I could gather - between bouts of spittle-flecked microphone biting, he felt that MaCain chose the Alaska Governor in a cynical, underhanded attempt to turn the simple country folk, what with their cow milking and hay making, against their dazzling urbanite betters and thus drive a wedge between these heretofore natural allies in the battle against the Darth Vadars of the Republican party.
When your enemies can talk about nothing but you, it means you've got them rocked back on their heels. They are reacting to your moves. You are all up inside their OODA loop. Witness Slick Willie and every conservative talk show guy between '92 and '00.

"inside their OODA loop"

Sorry Tam, that one's not clicking.

Observe, Orientate, Decide, Act.

Tam said...

OODA = "Observe. Orient. Decide. Act." A graphic representation of the decision-making cycle, as codified by Col. Boyd of the USAF. I've edited the post to provide a link to a Wiki article on the concept.

Sometimes satirized as "Observe. Overreact. Destroy. Apologize."

I love me some OODA loop. I shoulda figured Tam would be all over that concept and for some time.

OODA politics, in much the same way that Monty Python is OODA comedy :)
