On the morning of Wednesday, January 4th, Andy Schmookler and I had our 42nd political radio hour on 550 AM WSVA. Although I never time it, the show seemed a bit shorter than usual, perhaps starting later and/or with more commercial breaks.
The main topics of the day included: the end of the Obama presidency, his legacy, and the start of the Trump presidency. We also briefly considered whether and to what extent the Russians may have played in the recent elections. We planned to discuss Representative Bob Goodlatte’s attempt to dismantle of the independent House ethics committee and the resulting blowback from the public and President-elect Trump but unfortunately didn’t have sufficient time.
