Scarborough: “I Suggest Political Commentators Sit Back, Take a Deep Breath And Relax”

timecover_5-8.jpgMSNBC’s Joe Scarborough wrote one-half of the cover story for Time Magazine this week, headlined “How the Republicans Can Come Back.”

You could forgive Republican leaders for rolling their eyes this past week as they read obituaries declaring the death of the GOP. After all, many Washington pundits had already declared the Republican Party dead following its defeats in 1964, 1974 and 1992. The Democratic Party was also written off after taking a beating in 2004, with Republicans and Democrats alike debating whether George W. Bush’s re-election would usher in a permanent Republican majority. If it did, the Era of Republican Supremacy lasted a total of two years. With that as our historic backdrop, I suggest that political commentators sit back, take a deep breath and relax.

One side note: MSNBC’s Scarborough writes the article for Time Magazine, which has a partnership with CNN. Time’s biggest competitor in the newsweekly field is Newsweek, which has a content sharing agreement with MSNBC.
