• Clinton Lickspittle James Carville Blames it All on ‘The Press’

    After a row of tumbling, failed excuses for her use of personal email to shield her official actions as Secretary of State from Freedom of Information Act requests (which basically boiled down to, it was more convenient to set up my own mail server than to carry two devices on the road even when I already carried two devices on the road), Clinton has released the hounds.

    The running dog in question is James Carville, a major player in Bill’s campaigns known for his take-no-prisoners approach to dirty politics. Carville, in his new role as propagandist for Media Matters, ignores every single substantive question regarding Hillary’s actions to identify the real issue behind all those substantive questions: it’s all the fault of the press.

    In his “response,” here’s some of what Carville has to say:

    It is an ironclad rule that most any journalist covering the Clintons must follow: There shall be one standard for covering everyone else in public life, and another standard for the Clintons. Because, well… because they are the Clintons. Henceforth this will be referred to as the Clinton Rule. My point to you, dear reader, is that it is the Washington Press Corps’ rule, and they’re not going to change it,

    So that’s settled, dear reader. Carville goes on oblivious to his own contradictions by saying while Clinton did nothing wrong, others like Jeb Bush and Colin Powell did it too.

    Carville also knows where the nefarious press conspiracy against Clinton came from:

    Based on all my time in Washington watching the GOP scandal machine go, my guess is that this story came as a result of contact between the New York Times and Republicans on the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

    And now it is all over:

    You could almost touch the disappointment of the media yesterday when Secretary Clinton brought down the curtain on this charade.

    So that too is settled, dear reader. Oh dear God is it going to be a long campaign.

      They don’t make booze strong enough for this campaign. I’m switching to drinking straight kerosene. When that starts to feel too weak, I’ll begin injecting it. Last step is to beat myself over the head with the can until I black out.

      Carville and company are the tea-party versions in the Democratic party – a mega disappointment to true progressives in the Democratic party. These guys are the science-deniers of their own side.

      But hey, waffling has its entertaining moments too. One cannot make this stuff up. If there is a prize for best lame excuses for this new week coming up, how about Carville and Jeb Bush splitting the prize?? What is it Pitch often says — two rolling googly-eyes?

      Revision: When in Rome, pretend to do as the Romans do (to keep from being thrown into the Coliseum). We can live our private lives with conditions and principles while the power mad assume we support their vile ways.

      I’ve got a proposal. Instead of debates, and elections, how bout all the candidates stand on the edge of the Potomac bridge in WDC, and jump off. The ones that survive, get to do it again, until only one remains. Or not. 🙂
