New York Times Identifies Wrong Woman in Carville 'Trailer Park' Quote
January 20th, 2016 11:23 AM
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…
Scarborough, Harold Ford Scrap Over Hillary's Bullying Of Bill's Women
January 11th, 2016 8:49 AM
Is the Hillary camp sensing mortal political danger over her role as "bully" [to use Maureen Dowd's term] toward Bill's women? The question arises given the agitation, defensiveness and anger displayed by the normally mild-mannered Harold Ford, Jr., a Hillary fan, on today's Morning Joe.
Ford warning Joe Scarborough not to raise his voice to him? Ford defensively…
Sounds Like Carville Just Called Ben Carson 'Chauncey Gardiner'
November 4th, 2015 6:41 PM
Can you imagine the liberal outrage if a Republican called a prominent African-American 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…

August 19th, 2015 8:34 PM
Appearing on MSNBC early Wednesday afternoon, long-time Clinton adviser James Carville came out of the woodwork to condemn not only Republicans but the news media for their “stupidity” of harping on Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal and refuted the notion that there’s “a full-scale Democratic freak-out” underway.
Carville Calls Schweizer 'This Anti-Disney, Gay Bike Bar Glenn Beck'
April 23rd, 2015 7:13 PM
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…
Carville 'Suspects' Hillary's Private Server Set Up to Dodge Oversight
March 16th, 2015 10:06 AM
After his appearance yesterday on ABC's "This Week," Hillary Clinton may be wondering whose side James Carville is on.
Never mind Carville's frequent and rude interruptions of other guests, his seemingly calculated incoherence, and his false claims about the Clintons' past record of corruption. Even though that behavior doesn't represent the Clintons well, they…

January 11th, 2015 1:09 PM
On Sunday, ABC’s This Week took some time away from discussing the horrific terrorist attack in France to examine the 2016 presidential landscape.

Liberal Pundits Rush to Reject MRC Study Showing Media Midterm Bias
October 24th, 2014 6:01 PM
Since the Media Research Center first published its study on Wednesday showing a glaring double standard in how the network evening newscasts covered the anti-Republican wave in the 2006 midterm election vs the likely anti-Democratic wave in 2014, various liberal pundits and journalists took to the airwaves in an effort to dismiss the findings.
