Avoiding the Public: Some Candidates Go MIA

The anrgy Tea Party candidates we hear so much about claim to be representing ordinary people. Odd, then, that they tend to stay away from actual voters.

It's true, Sooner fans. Some candidates are very wary of real voters, especially voters who might challenge their positions or question their ideas.

As a result, some of these folks have gone into hiding, the better to avoid the inquisitive minds of real people. In Delaware, Christine O'Donnell is MIA, as is Sharron Angle in Nevada and Rand Paul in Kentucky.

Politico has the story here.

Hand it to Sarah Palin for innovating the "hide from the media" strategy.

It was totally necessary in her case, since she made a total fool of herself in her CBS and ABC interviews.

Twitter is best suited for her pearls of wisdom.

If you are an idiot candidate, stick with Fox News.
