    NY Times ^ | May 5 2016
    Mary Matalin, a high-profile political pundit and veteran strategist for the Republican Party, changed her party registration to Libertarian from Republican, she said on Thursday. But in an interview with Bloomberg, which reported on the switch, she emphasized that her decision was not connected to Donald J. Trump’s being the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. She described herself as a voter as a “provisional Trump” and a “never Hillary,” referring to the leading Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. Pressed on Thursday about why she switched political parties, Ms. Matalin told Bloomberg Politics that she was a Republican in the “Jeffersonian, Madisonian sense.”...

    Can you imagine the liberal outrage if a Republican called a prominent Dem candidate "Chauncey Gardiner," the simple soul from the Peter Sellers film Being There? The cries of racism might well cost such a hapless Republican his job. But don't expect James Carville to pay any price. On today's With All Due Respect, Carville said that a frustrated Bush "can't believe that Chauncey Gardiner [laughs] and Trump and all these people are running ahead of him." Given that Carson and Trump are the two front-runners, and that Carson, while brilliant, is soft-spoken, there would seem little doubt that Carville...

    Dems’ Ex-Machina: Clinton Machine was Bill’s alone by Daniel Clark Anytime Hillary Clinton runs for office, we can count on political analysts to ask how her opponents will fare against the Clinton Machine. In reality, they don’t have to. There’s a reason it isn’t called the Rodham Machine. The Clinton Machine was Bill’s, and his alone. The Clinton Machine functioned as a synchronized effort among Bill’s perpetual campaign team, the Democratic Party and the media. This may sound simple, since they were in general political agreement to start with, but the system would have broken down if the messages being...

    In the moments where former Clinton advisor James Carville wasn’t completely unintelligible in his Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s This Week, he was actively undermining the effort to defend Hillary Clinton’s controversial email practices. Due to her stubborn refusal to amend her 2016 campaign rollout schedule, the former secretary of state still lacks a press shop and, as a result, has had to rely on surrogates like Media Matters founder David Brock, former Clinton counsel Lanny Davis, and political advisor James Carville to defuse this scandal in the press.

    James Carville chose these colorful words to describe Rick Santorum after Mitt Romney swept three Republican primaries Tuesday: “He was like a chicken with his head chopped off. The chicken is dead. The only person that don’t know it is the chicken.” The Democratic strategist, not known to mince his words, said in a late-night interview with CNN that Santorum “can flop around all he wants to [but] they’re not going to nominate him.”

    What’s the best part of this? The idea of a prominent Democrat interrupting his party’s Mediscare demagoguery to scold the right on increasing health-care costs for seniors? The fact that he thinks ObamaCare, which isn’t even defended as a cost-saving measure anymore, will effectively bend the curve on that? Or his palpable annoyance at the notion that enumerated powers might throw up a constitutional roadblock to something progressives really, really, really want to do? But never mind that. Is he right? He’s unquestionably right on how the left will spin the aftermath of the mandate being dumped: They tried, now...

    Before an approving crowd of thousands at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the former House speaker laid out a cluttered schedule that would repudiate "at least 40 percent of (President Barack Obama's) government on the opening day." "When the Congress comes in (in early January) it will stay in session and by January 20th, it will have repealed 'Obamacare,'" Gingrich said to a loud roar, referring to the president's landmark legislation that has helped provide coverage for tens of millions of uninsured Americans. Also going under the axe would be the Dodd-Frank bill on Wall Street reform and the...

    Memo to the Republican Establishment, Part II. First of all, let me apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I realize it's been 15 days since I've penned (as the Mittster would say) my last memo to you. . . . Good manners dictate that I convey my most heartfelt congratulations to you for what you did to old Newt in your aggressive ad campaign. I mean, you guys really did him in. As we say in Louisiana, you made minced meat out of that boy. You rounded up a bunch of Wall Street money and turned it over...

    Herman Cain acted swiftly to put an end to speculation over the story about sexual-harassment claims during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association. After a few hours of confused response, Cain admitted that he had been accused, but falsely, of inappropriate conduct. He claimed that an investigation of those accusations showed at the time that they were “baseless,” and he seemed surprised by the news that the trade group settled the claims. “I hope it wasn’t for much,” Cain told Fox News, “because nothing happened”: “I have never sexually harassed anyone, but yes, I was falsely accused while I...

    Truth is, James Carville still thinks Hillary Clinton should be president. But just out of curiousity, what does Bill Clinton's former chief political strategist think of the developing Republican field for 2012? Our pal Scott Hennen, one of the country's top conservative radio talkers, asked Carville just that. And the pair had a, uh, candid exchange: HENNEN: Obviously Herman Cain’s faring pretty well right now in the polls, and all along, quite honestly, had the most passionate supporters in this field; a nonpolitician, which has probably served him well, just as an example of the frustration of the conservative Republican...
