Good morning AB, and, as always, thanks for posting this each week.
Bye, bye, Arlen!
Too many of the same-o faces seem to be emerging again after the election.
If they had anything new to say, it might be different, but we will get a stream of the same-o.
Tony Blair on MTP seems to be the only one with postential for 'worth watching' this morning.
I guess Mary and James will be on 'Meet The Depressed' at the same time. They ought to let them come on seperately. <P. By the way, did Carville place a wastebasket on his head this time around?
I may watch MTP as I have never seen Mary Matalin and James Carville together.
I'm wondering if he is any less obnoxious when his wife is right there with him.
Thank you, AB.
Have wondered the same thing about MM and JC. AM out of the door for church and work, so please ping me your observations....Thanks.
That's a hard lineup to choose from. Frist is the only one likely to make news, so I guess I'll watch Fox and tape MTP...just for the pleasure of watching Mary lord it over Carville.
Thanks again for doing this each week:)
I've seen James and Mary together several times...I may be imagining this- but it seems to me she treats him like an errant schoolboy..
HARTFORD (11/03/04) -- U.S. Sen. Christopher J. Dodd -- after trouncing the Republican novice who sought to deny him a fifth term -- today finds himself one of the most likely candidates to become the new Senate Democratic leader.
Moreover, Dodd's relatively generous disbursement of at least $234,000 in campaign contributions to key party committees and Senate candidates, including 11 re-elected incumbents and two newly-elected Democrats, may prove to have been a timely investment in his own political future.
...... very slightly less in my opinion.
Not as far as I'm concerned, although she does "handle" him well. Sort-of reminds me of the keepers at the zoo.
Just another case of the MSM trying to make news instead of reporting it.
Notice that Terry McAuliffe is still in milk-carton territory.
Dick Morris has a column pointing out that Democratic Senator Chris Dodd played a pivotal role in the Enron mess. In 1995, Dodd rammed through legislation, even over Clinton's veto, to protect firms like Enron from lawsuits against lawyers and accountants for aiding and abetting corporate fraud. From 1993-1997, Dodd received $345,903 from a grateful accounting industry. When the SEC tried to bar the practice of having auditing firms also do consulting work, Dodd intervened, and the SEC agreed not to issue a ban. Hang on, though, for politicians like Dodd, there is no shame. Now, he has introduced legislation banning firms from performing both auditing and consulting chores for the same company.
By the way Dodd has a lot of dirt from way back but I must go feed the dog and cats.
Dodd is a weasel, not to put down the fine little weasels of the world.
MSM's lovefest with McCain never stops, it seems. Stephie will try to get McCain say anything against the supposed CIA clean-up. Loosers are going to realize that their game is over this time.
Ton Blair on Russert's show! Great.
Thanks, again, for doing this each Sunday.
"I've seen James and Mary together several times...I may be imagining this- but it seems to me she treats him like an errant schoolboy."
I don't think it's your imagination - - I've felt the same way - - the times I've seen them on MTP together, JC is much different than when he's on a show by himself - -usually a bit more low key. As I recall, MM gives him one of what I call those 'double whammy' looks (you know the kind your Mom gave you when you were little and you knew you had better straighten up fast). I also recall her going, 'oh, James, you know that's not true....... It can be entertaining.
Why Luger and Levin on CNN? Bills to come on the lame duck Congressional session?
to come on = to come up in
Off topic but was anyone listening to the C-Span morning show yesterday, when the topic was health care? Guy called in saying he was Garrett Morris from SNL, and that he had been shot two years ago and supported medical marijuana. I half expected Chevy Chase to come on, and Garret to start doing his "hearing impaired" translation.
Chris Wallace just asked Frist if Specter had yet convinced him (Frist) that he is sincere in his claims to support Bush's nominees etc...Frist said "Not yet" GO BILL!!!!
Ya gotta love the way Frist is "talking".
Now, let's see how it translates into action.
Yeah ... It's like Halloween all over again.
Why don't the ghouls ever bury their dead? ;)
TR plays an old clip of Carville where he says Kerry would get 52%. I think he just hit himself in the face with an egg.
Pretty much says it all!
Egg on his face -- I think Carville just showed his sense of humor.
Why did Bush win. Dem party at a precarious moment. We control no branches of government. Our purpose is to win elections and our message is we can manage problems but Pubbies say we can solve them.
James...bet $1,000 with his wife on the outcome of the election. He is now writing out a check to a charity of Mary's choice!
Carville: The Dems have a litany, the Reps have a narrative.
Dodd was up to his ass in the Chinese money scandel during the toon money mess. He was co-party chair. I think it was Dodd and kennedy that held a fund raiser for John Wong sp and kept some contrbutions for themselvs. They are both crooked bastards.
Carville is far from dumb. I'll give him that. We need to start solving problems. Tim doesn't want Bush to have a mandate. Matlin points out that he won seats in both houses and on specific reforms.
That works only until he starts blasting "the religious right" about their idology.
She can do a pretty good job of making him behave.
Carville is wrong about a political party's job being to win elections. It is to govern in the best interests of the country, whether in the majority or the minority.
A coy Joe Lieberman on FNC just left the decided impression that the Dems want Arlen chairing the Judiciary Committee. Gee, wonder why? Frist, if you make this guy chair the Pubbies, and everyone who voted for you (a number of Dems among them), are screwed.
That's on my local FOX affiliate, not FNC.
And that's after 6 Viagra's.
Russert and Carville trying to make the case that religious evangelicals will be running the country.
Mary sighs, and straightens them out...this is NOT about religion- it's about values.
