How To Game Simple Media Dupes in One Easy Lesson

The jingosphere was irate yesterday with those of us who presumed to opine that Mrs. Sammy's tears looked somewhat staged.

Per Jeralyn, maybe the tut-tutters can explain the immediate post-caterwaul release of this:
The always-alert Creative Response Concepts, a conservative public relations firm, sent this bulletin: "Former Alito clerk Gary Rubman witnessed Mrs. Alito leaving her husband's confirmation in tears and is available for interviews, along with other former Alito clerks who know her personally and are very upset about this development."
And who would Creative Response Concepts be? According to Will Bunch, they're the same crack team that insta-pimped the Swift Boat Veterans and that TANG/Buckhead nonsense.

Quelle coincidence, as we traitorous French would say.
