<p>Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne appeared on&nbsp;<em>Morning Joe</em>&nbsp;Tuesday&nbsp;morning to promote his new book&nbsp;<em>Why the Right Went Wrong.&nbsp;</em>He expressed horror at the idea of a Republican president with the doomsday claim:&nbsp;&ldquo;It will be just like Herbert Hoover! And we saw what happened after that!&rdquo;</p>

<p>Dionne&rsquo;s hyperbole came after host Joe Scarborough paraphrased an article by Dan Balz, the chief political correspondent at The Washington Post: &ldquo;If the Republicans actually ever do win the White House again, it would be the greatest dominance of American politics in 60, 70, 80 years. If you look at the fact that they own sixty percent of the governor&rsquo;s mansions, sixty percent of the state legislatures &ndash; the House.&rdquo;</p>
