Three Native Rhode Islanders Commenting From the Right on Politics and Anything Else

The Larry Craig incident has sent the MSM’s collective pulse racing. Evidently they are really excited that the scandal will help their favorite party win their 60th Senate seat in the next election. Although it is plausible that Craig’s political future is in jeopardy, I think a math lesson is in order.

Even assuming that every one of this article’s assumptions is correct and that the Republican Party somehow loses the Idaho seat, there is still no way the Democrats win 60 seats. The article correctly points out that the Democrats effectively hold 51 seats at the moment. The article then claims that six Republicans are vulnerable in 2008. Okay everyone, 51 plus 6 is how much? 57. Now add Craig’s seat. That makes 58. Unless my math is wrong 58 does not equal 60. Dream on MSNBC.

Thank goodness the old media has no bias? Note the question mark.
