It’s catchup time at DaTechGuy blog.
On the same subject Morning Joe argued Tuesday that Rush Limbaugh had hurt republicans because Democrats had won 4 of the last six presidential elections. Actually republicans are 3 for seven in elections since Rush was syndicated but here is a better measure.
Both Joe Scarborough and I are going to be fifty this year. From the day we were born till Rush Limbaugh went on the air happens to be 25 years, half our lives. During that time GOP controlled the House of Representatives exactly 0 years and the senate 6 years. At no time did the GOP control both houses of congress.
During the 25 years since Rush came on the air the GOP has controlled the house for 14 years and the senate for 10 years and for the first time in our lifetimes controlled both house and senate for 10 of them.
I’ll make that trade any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Keep an eye out for this week’s on Wednesday or Thursday at all those sites.
This week we have scheduled CNN’s Newest and best acquisition Jake Tapper and in the second hour comedian Jim Labriola
