Talking points are nothing new
The only surprising thing in the July 8 front-page article “Clinton supporters learning just what to say” was that it didn’t mention how late the Democrats have been in catching on to the talking-points game.
During Bill Clinton’s presidency, I appeared on various cable networks to attempt to defend clients caught up in dozens of meritless political cases drummed up by the Republican-led Congress. What I found each time was an army of Republican talking heads armed with daily talking points (they all read off the same page) provided by the Republican National Committee. This routine, presented as though new in the article, was mastered by the Republicans years ago, leaving those of us working stiffs who sought to give voice to another point of view in the dust.
Looks as if Hillary Clinton also remembers those days.
