Boehlert on the Palin playbook: "Delegitimize the press...make time for Fox News, and then just ignore reporters."

Boehlert talks about how Sharon Angle and Rand Paul are attempting to emulate Sarah Palin's strategy of ignoring the local press and talking to only Fox News and hate radio.

But one seriously has to wonder whether or not this is a good strategy. I mean, the nutballs who watch Fox News are always going to vote for the right wing candidate, but how do you win over independents if you only ever appear on networks devoted to the right wing?
