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."

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.

November 1st, 2013 1:12 PM
Since the government shutdown, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting some media member claiming Republicans are in a lot of trouble heading into next year's midterm elections.
