The Republican Playbook

Oldish news, but still important. If you haven't familiarized yourself with Frank Luntz's immensely influential memo/pamphlet Republican Playbook to advance the right-wing agenda, you're in for a real treat of a lesson in the dirty logistics of massive propaganda, including how to deflect criticisms of the economy onto public fear after 9/11 and how to make Americans swallow policies most of them don't believe in, like giving tax breaks to the rich. Even if you don't care about "taking this country back" from the Right, it's a great read.
