  • FLASHBACK: Hilariously Wrong Political Analysis at Politicon 2016

    NewsBusters ^ | July 26, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    This weekend the annual Politicon political convention returns to Pasadena, California. There will be many panels and discussions but how seriously should we take them? Well, judging from Politicon 2016 perhaps we should take it all with a yuuuge grain of salt. A stroll down Memory Lane reveals that the discussions and most panelists were laughably off the mark especially as to anticipating what is now viewed as the greatest political upset in American political history a few months after that convention. Let us now observe how the Politicon "experts" of 2016 opened themselves up to become the laughingstocks of 2017 starting with...
  • James Carville Was Right ... That The Democrats Are Toast, and Trump is Kicking Rump

    The extremism and monomaniacal fatalism of Carville's book further demonstrates how out of touch he has become In 2016, Democratic strategist James Carville (who incidentally enough is married to former Republican operative Mary Matalin) played up whatever political acumen and integrity he claimed to have (nil), and wrote another book called: “We’re Still Right, They’re Still Wrong.” Carville was not original enough to write a new title, but merely modified the old one which had published twenty years ago, when Bill Clinton won re-election, in large part because Republicans failed to field a stronger candidate to challenge Bubba.

    WASHINGTON —The increasing static between Kabul and the White House brings to mind other dicey episodes in American diplomacy. Even dealing with allies can be tricky. Recall de Gaulle. He was heartburn for five American presidents. Even Churchill could be difficult, and he was half-American. Yet for Roosevelt and Truman he could be a trial, particularly when the question of the British Empire was on the table and the future of its colonies. President Barack Obama’s rows with President Hamid Karzai may not put you in mind of de Gaulle or the passing of the British Empire, but there is...
  • James Carville: ‘I’m a Nervous Wreck, Not Impossible’ for Trump to Win

    If Serpent Head is nervous . . . There was an ironic contrast on today’s Morning Joe. On the one hand, Steve Schmidt—former McCain campaign manager turned Trump antagonist—sees no real chance for the Donald. Said Schmidt: “I’ve been in the camp that says it’s been over for some time,” and that “the bill is coming due for the tone and tenor” of Trump’s campaign. Schmidt sees Hillary cruising to a win with 320-340 Electoral College votes. It was actually James Carville who in contrast said that it’s “not impossible” for Trump to win, and indeed that he’s a “nervous...

It smells like death.” – Big Daddy, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof That is one cold woman; Hillary I mean. When news broke of her email investigation being reopened due to emails mysteriously reappearing on the Perv’s computer Hillary’s first instinct was to make Huma cry,and then banish her from her sight. The next day Huma was relegated to the ranks of “one of my staffers.” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton...
  • Mary Matalin: Trump Has 85-90% Chance of Winning

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Wow! Veteran political strategist Mary Matalin is not just “confident” that Donald Trump is going to win, she thinks he has an 85-90% chance of winning. And even that is conservative compared to the 100% chance she originally claimed during her appearance on today’s With All Due Respect. Note that Matalin is not a rabid Trump partisan. To the contrary, she quit the Republican party in May, and says that rather than having a dog in the race, she has, in Trump, merely a “mini-puppy.” Matalin took an amusing shot at her husband, Dem strategist James Carville. When John Heilemann...

    Democratic operative James Carville rips Donald Trump and his supporters for suggesting the presidential election will be rigged. Carville called such claims "a fundamental attack on the country itself" on Wednesday's broadcast of MSNBC's Morning Joe. However, Carville conceded it is "possible" to "rig a voting machine to get a 100 votes here or a 100 votes there."

    Motor-mouthed left-wing spin doctor and career Clintonista James Carville The motor-mouthed left-wing spin doctor and career Clintonista James Carville, says those who try to hinder the fine work of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation will be consigned to the flames of woe. It amounts to a loud “how dare you!” based on the assumption that the Clinton Foundation actually does good things. “What the Clinton Foundation does, it takes money from rich people and gives it to poor people,” Politico reported the Ragin’ Cajun saying on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show.
  • Gloria Steinem puts the Feminist Movement to death

    The feminist movement is dead. It died at the hands of Gloria Steinem. Cause of death was political strangulation. Gloria Steinem had made a name for herself for purporting to be a voice for women's rights beginning in the 60's and 70's. She was an icon for women for a long time but has repeatedly compromised her alleged principles for politics and her biases finally overtook her. Limbaugh's "feminazi" term has never been more appropriate. I began to loathe Steinem for her painful hypocrisy in the 90's when she (and HIllary) went Tammy Wynette during the Bill Clinton Presidency. She...

    ORANGE - Two of the nation's most prominent political consultants visited Orange Monday night. Mary Matalin and James Carville were part of the Distinguished Lecture Series hosted by Lamar State College-Orange. They spoke to a crowd of more than 600 at the Lutcher Theater. The two represent different political parties, Matalin is a Republican and Carville is a Democrat. Both have presidential wins under their belts. Matalin with George H.W. Bush and Carville with Bill Clinton. Matalin and Carville have been married for 22 years. Before they took the stage at the Lutcher, they met with 12News. They were both...

    So many women. So many scandals. Yes, it can be very confusing writing about Hillary Clinton and her team covering up the many, many "bimbo eruptions" during the course of her and husband Bill's political careers. Therefore it is understandable that Amy Chozick, writing in the New York Times about the many scandals threatening to erode her support among women, got the names mixed up when presenting the infamous "trailer park" quote by Hillary supporter James Carville:
  • Sounds Like Carville Just Called Ben Carson 'Chauncey Gardiner'

    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...

    Here is video from CNN yesterday where GOP strategist Mary Matalin was on with Democrat Strategist husband James Carville talking about the Health Care debate. Carville was his usual nasty self, launching into an attack on Sarah Palin and conservatives in general as being "nutty" for believing in Creation and holding traditional values. But Carville's wife Mary Matalin skewered him when he finished the attack by saying: Here's a rule for your viewers going forward for Sunday: The greater the Carville level of vitriol, the more they are losing." Matalin's rule is true across the board for Democrats and the...

    SARASOTA -- Democratic consultant James Carville was asked Wednesday if he lost any business when he married Republican strategist Mary Matalin."The only thing I lost when I got married was my ability to make decisions," Carville quipped. Carville and Matalin exchanged more light-hearted banter than pointed political opinions in a joint appearance at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Those expecting a Lincoln-Douglas-style debate got something closer to George Burns and Gracie Allen instead. Matalin maintained at one point that she didn't read the book her husband wrote, nor did she "read his half of the book we wrote together."...

    I posted this late Sunday night and I thought it might get more traffic today. Here is the original post. W 2004!!! With the new "dream team" of Carville and Begala in place, I thought it worthy of posting Carville's utter throwing away of Zell and his blaming Republicans for making Zell turn on his Dem buddies. Key points: Zell Miller was Carville's former employer and Miller officiated Carville and Matalins wedding!!! There is no bottom for Carville and this marks the beginning of the next phase in the battle for the White House. I wonder if Carl Rove forced...

    Democratic strategist James Carville slammed “tool of the Koch Brothers” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), saying he “just feeds the New York Times stuff, and they put it in the paper. Just like the neocons fed the New York Times a bunch of bunk they put on the front page of the paper, basically helped start a war” on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.” Carville said of the Clinton email scandal, “my question is, will this rise to the level of scandal as the white house christmas card list back in the ’90s that had 140 hours...

    Democratic strategist James Carville in an interview broadcast Sunday blasted a potential 2016 White House run by Vice President Joe Biden. "He's done it twice, and he hasn't had the best track record doing it," the longtime Clinton adviser told host John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York. Biden met with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Saturday in Washington, D.C., CNN reported, amid buzz he is seriously weighing a 2016 Oval Office bid. It is seen as biggest indicator yet that Biden is seriously tempted by a presidential run next year. "I don't hold to...

    How did Howard Dean go from vivid voice of the New Left to political hack defending Hillary Clinton at all costs? Joe Scarborough called Dean on it today, telling Howard he had become the "New England version of James Carville." Dean, on today's Morning Joe, dismissed the latest Washington Post story suggesting possible financial improprieties at the Clinton Foundation as "a breathless piece of hot air" and, incredibly, Dean said he'd advise Hillary not to address the rising tide of questions. The depth of Hillary's dilemma is reflected in the fact that defenders like Dean are reduced to claiming that...

    Even by James Carville standards, this was bizarre. Toward the end of his appearance on Ed Schultz's show today, Carville called Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer "this anti-Disney, gay bike bar Glenn Beck or whatever this guy is." Maybe Carville will come back and explain what he meant. It's true that Schweizer was a contributor to one of Beck's books. And Schweizer is the author of "Disney Betrayed," which criticizes the company for various things including sponsoring "Gay Days" at their parks. But a casual listener might well have come away with an entirely different understanding of what Carville was...
