The Minority Maker
When the GOP took over Congress, Rush Limbaugh was touted "The Majority Maker" due to his softening up of the Clinton administration prior to the 1994 elections. The Claire McCaskill campaign largely credits Limbaugh's callous mocking of Michael J. Fox for putting her over the top and, thus, giving control of the Senate to the Democrats. How sweet it is.
