'Pure stagecraft.'

That was my wife’s immediate response to my mentioning that Rush Limbaugh responded to Ms. Sykes‘ rather tawdry – and absolutely typical – attack on him by… not commenting on it at all. Bear in mind that my wife isn’t particularly political, doesn’t listen to talk radio (then again, neither do I), and more or less smiles and nods when I start blathering on and on about this sort of thing.

But she is smart. Smarter than me, in fact; I had already worked out that Limbaugh has bigger fish to fry, but she connects the dots very quickly, sometimes.
