Carville Comics

Posted on June 27, 2012


As the election cycle progresses, the usual ‘Jack in the Box’ nature of crazy liberal / Democrat / Progress-o-bats flapping their wings here, there and everywhere and issuing quotes that would make a fall down drunk seem lucid in comparison – is going into hyperdrive. Actually, from my standpoint, having just dealt with ‘Mad Maxine Waters’ in my most recent post – it’s looking more like a game of ‘Whack-a-Mole’ – or more precisely, ‘Whack-a-Left Wing Whack Job’.

Here’s the latest entrant in the Democrat alternate universe ‘delusion of the day’ contest. James Carville. Mr. Carville is picking up a little ‘cha-ching’ in trade for making some ludicrous comments on behalf of Louise Slaughter, incumbent Congresswoman in New York’s 28th District.  In a blast email to potential supporters of Slaughter (pun intended), Carville quips:

“These Tea Party Republicans have worn out their welcome. But I’m telling you — getting rid of ‘em won’t be easy. They’re not leaving on their own. We’re going to have to boot them out the door like unwanted house guests,” Mr. Carville wrote. “That’s why we’ve got to get behind proud Democrats like Louise Slaughter to make sure we can win a Democratic Majority.”

 ‘Proud Democrats’?  Proud of what – pray tell.  What’s a good campaign piece without an oxymoron, I suppose – or any other kind, for that matter?  Proud Democrats – that’s classic.  I give him style points for that one.  Carville may have written that nonsense.  He’s definitely in the sweepstakes with Maxine Waters as to who wins the crown for the most atrocious and bizarre statements.  So many Democrats – so little time!  Not too long ago he uttered this jive crap:

 “This may be news to you [Obama] but this is not going well. For precedent, see Russian Army 64th division at Stalingrad. There were enough deaths at Stalingrad to make the entire Tea Party collectively orgasm. As I watch the Republican debates, I realize that we are on the brink of a crazy person running our nation. 

I sit in front of the television and shudder at the thought of one of these creationism-loving, global-warming-denying, immigration-bashing, Social-Security-cutting, clean-air-hating, mortality-fascinated, Wall-Street-protecting Republicans running my country.”

 I’ll say this for Carville – he can cram 25 lbs of ignorance in a 5 lb sack.

The email in question, laughably enough, is titled ‘The Tea Party is Over’.  I’m at a loss as to what might be bouncing around inside that shiny dome of Carville’s (if anything) – when one considers some of the following trends:

  • Richard Lugar’s loss of his long held Indiana Senate seat to Tea Party favorite Richard Mourdock.
  • The 2010 Congressional election, in which scores of Tea Party Republicans were swept into office at the expense of the Democrats in Congress.
  • Bob Turner’s historic win in New York’s 9th Congressional District – which had not elected a Republican for 80 years.  The Democrats had to reconfigure the district in order to have any chance of getting it back in the next regular election.
  • Scott Walker’s decisive recall election win, in which he won a strong plurality of the 18-25 youth vote demographic and a stunning 34 percent of self identified Union voters.
  • Gary Miller’s primary win in California, leaving in the dust, a Hispanic Democrat challenger, Pete Aquilar – in a heavily Latino populated district. 

Democrats and their media proxies purposefully misrepresent the status of the Tea Party and its importance by attempting to frame the narrative that because the big rallies and protests have dropped off the radar screen, so has the Tea Party movement. Wishful thinking – yes. Reality – no.

Our activism has merely taken a logical evolutionary track centered around flexing its muscle within the GOP, rather than from outside, as it did initially.

James Carville, you’re smarter that this – or you were. Wait a minute!!! – you’re getting paid to say dumb stuff and I’m telling it like it is for free…why you old dog, you!
