79. ".. as you should know"
That little phrase stuck into every media appearance would go a long way.

I am probably being naive here too-if you even hint at blaming the media (if you are a liberal) the "Are you BLAMING THE MEDIA!?!?!?" shot right back at you and the Dems tend to cower back scared to death that the media might not have them on at all....come to think of it they DON'T have them on very much anymore so what the hell come out guns a blazing. I say.
