The Silence of the Lambs

So here I am, waiting patiently for the vaunted Mitt Romney for President campaign to begin.

Have I missed it? The only evidence so far is a series of ads on You Tube, each one I'm told, better than the last, and all adding up to the devastating indictment that, gee, Barack Obama is a nice guy but he's just in over his head, and how about that bad economy, and what this country really needs, instead of a good five-cent cigar, is a corporate turnaround executive.

I'm told that the big push is just around the corner, that Mitt's schedule is consumed with fund-raisers for the nonce, but fasten your seatbelts because over the course of the last month of the campaign, it's gonna be a doozy.

And then, if all else fails, there are always the debates.

So here's my rude question: if the Romney campaign falls in the forest and no media are around to cover it, does it make a sound? Because a paid-advertising campaign just isn't going to cut it. And some point -- and very soon -- Mitt Romney is going to have to deal with and engage the media, or else run the risk of becoming a hologram of his own candidacy.

Yes, I know the media is in the tank for Obama. They're led by the Jake Lingle of his day, David Axelrod, in a never-ending puppet show that goes something like the video on the next page.
