    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 todays 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...

    Bloomberg TV | 9/8/16 | Mark Halperin and John Heilemann
    Mary Matlin was just on "With All Due Respect" on Bloomberg TV with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. Matling was never a Trump fan but she now says she will vote for him. They ask her for the odds of winning for each candidate and she replied Trump is at 100%. She said there is something going on in the country that the press refuses to see but the country was leaning towards Trump. To say they were dumbfounded with be a mild statement. They were hysterical. It was a thing of beauty. The show will be repeated on MSNBC...

    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. Trumps 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....

    The wide variety of potential candidates for the Republican presidential nomination boils down to one question in many quarters which one can beat Hillary Clinton? But to at least one powerful Republican consultant, Mary Matalin, the "Hillary" question is pointless. "Hillary Clintons lead is ephemeral," Matalin told Politico Magazine. "As soon as she gets in, if she gets in, she will be challenged and it will evaporate. Just the nature of the beast. I predict she doesnt run." ---snip--- Political consultant and media strategist Mark McKinnon predicts a "Clash of the Titans" battle between Clinton and Bush for the...

    Until now, the only Democrat allowed to cozy up with GOP superstar strategist Mary Matalin was her husband, political consultant James Carville. My support for Mitch (Landrieu) has nothing to do with his party,' Mary Matalin said. But it looks like another member of the opposition has won a bit of Matalin's heart. According to an invitation circulating this week, Matalin is slated to co-host an upcoming $1,000-a-person fundraiser in Washington for Lt. Gov Mitch Landrieu. Matalin, who has spent time in the White House as an assistant to former President George W. Bush and counselor to former Vice President...

    In a venture to the weird, Republican political strategist Mary Matalin is on tap to host a fund raiser for Democrat Mitch Landrieu in his bid for the New Orleans mayoral slot. NOLA reports that Matalin is slated to co-host an upcoming $1,000-a-person fundraiser in Washington for current Lt. Gov Mitch Landrieu, brother of Senator Mary Landrieu. Matalin says she is supporting Landrieu because of his common sense on issues and his leadership ability; she says it has nothing to do with party.

    Bottom line: The book is a good read, an unusually detailed front-row seat view to how strained campaigns always are, and a compelling insight into Palin's perspective. Its long-term publishing and political impact are unknown for now, though as Palin moves out of the mainstream media monster publicity machine and into more hospitable, relevant political terrain, the prospects for success on both fronts improve exponentially. But its impact on personal and professional relationships is a sad one indeed and one I hope conservatives don't let it divide us just when we are marching toward a promising midterm, which reflects an...

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.

    Here is video of ABC’s George Stephanopoulos talking with GOP Strategist Mary Matalin and Democrat Strategist Donna Brazile about the chances of Republicans winning control of Congress in the upcoming Midterm Elections. Brazile put the odds at “50-50,” while Matalin said the GOP would win back the House, and that they had a “9 in 10″ chance of taking the U.S. Senate as well.

    National Review ^ | 1/19/2010 | Mary Matalin
    While trickery is a concern, the tracking all seems to be on Scott Brown's side. They have great turnout and ballot-integrity operations in place. The local pollster who always picks the three bellwether counties has Brown exceeding Cellucci's and Romney's numbers. Martha Coakley started cratering when Bill Clinton came in and imploded after Obama's attack on the truck. 59 percent think she ran a negative campaign; 15 percent think he did. Millions came in online in the last week. Conservatives have noted this but it has otherwise gone mostly unreported: Brown ran not only on the 41st anti-health-care vote, but...

    Rush Limbaugh was talking about this yesterday. Rahm Emanuel, James Carville, Paul Begala, and George Stephanopoulos all get together each morning for a conference for a high level bull session. What's wrong with this picture? For the DUmmies what is wrong with this picture is they suspect that Mary Matalin is listening in as you can see in this THREAD titled, ""Mary Matalin has overheard daily calls with Rahm, Carville, Begala, and Stephanopoulos." Hee! Hee! I'm picturing a Civil War female spy overhearing high level conversations and then crossing over enemy lines to deliver the information to the other...

    Mary Matalin, former counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney, is joining likely presidential candidate Fred Thompsons team and will serve as an unpaid adviser. Matalin, who served as treasurer for Sen. George Allens unsuccessful re-election campaign last year, is a friend of Thompson and his wife Jeri, reports. Also joining the Thompson team is Lawrence Lindsey, President George Bushs first economic adviser and a proponent of his tax cuts. He will serve as chief architect of Thompsons economic policy. Meanwhile, President Bushs nephew George P. Bush son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has contributed to Thompsons...

    While the MSM is utterly consumed by the Foleygate Scandal, they are missing out on a huge political fratricide story in which the Leftwing Blogosphere is now blaming James Carville for their 2004 election loss. You probably haven't heard about this story yet because the likes of Chris Matthews and Tim Russert are having urinations of happiness in their diapers promoting the Foley story as the way to keep the "fundies" from turning out on election day due to what the MSM think will be their gullibility in swallowing the MSM promoted message that that they will blame the...

    by Mark Finkelstein March 29, 2006 A quick take on a morning when I'm headed to Washington, DC. Sometimes, you just can't win with the MSM. For weeks, the MSM has been calling for a White House shake-up. So when it came in spades yesterday with the resignation of chief of staff Andy . . . Card [spades, Card. Come on, tough room here!], naturally the media applauded the bold move. Or not. Veteran NewsBusters readers know better. There is no appeasing the liberal media. They recalibrate their line of attack and move on. But who could have predicted the...

CALLER: Great. RUSH: Actually, that's not true. If you want to know the truth I'm in a foul humor today. It's only my professionalism that makes you think I'm enjoying things today. CALLER: Well, maybe we can add a little more satire to your show now. RUSH: (Laughing.) Perhaps. CALLER: What I was calling for is I watched the David Gregory apology. RUSH: Yeah, that was on Meet the Depressed...

    Fox News Sunday (Chris Wallace) Memes: As usual it looks like Fox is reversing the main meme of the other shows: the usual suspects (Dems/MSM) are trying to blame the grown ups for a natural disasterThe MSM are out of their tiny minds, particularly CNN for lashing out at Brit Hume and Fox for the Cheney interviewThey are giving Evan Bayh a platform for trying to run right of George Bush on IRANThey are giving Lindsey Graham a platform to auditioning as John McCain's VP candidate, therefore he will take the Democrat talking points on NSA and repeat them, ad...
