James Carville, one of the leading voices for Democrats over the past 12 years, displayed the kind of class and inclusiveness that Democrats accuse Republicans of lacking on yesterday's Meet the Press. Bill at INDC Journal points out this exchange with Tim Russert on air:
MR. RUSSERT: George Bush have a mandate?
MR. CARVILLE: The only politician in America I know with a mandate is Jim McGreevey, Tim.
MS. MATALIN: Oh, gee.
MR. CARVILLE: No, of course he does. I mean, he's going to...
MR. RUSSERT: Who's running this guy's material, Mary? This...
MS. MATALIN: Oh, I'm not. I'm not getting up anymore.
Can you imagine the outcry if Karl Rove -- or hell, even Mary Matalin -- had made fun of James McGreevy's sexual orientation on national TV? ACT-UP would already have pickets outside Capitol Hill demanding someone get fired, and the New York Times would be clucking its editorial tongue at the GOP for insensitivity and sexual bigotry. The Ragin' Cajun probably gets a pass.
Carville at least provides a glimpse into the hypocrisy and double standards of the mainstream media and the Democrats. If the Democrats publicly disown Carville, I'll take that back. I won't be holding my breath.Sphere It View blog reactions
