Et Tu Carville
I have gone about 6 weeks since posting. That is how turned off I have become with Democratic politics in the run-up to the convention and election.
My last post explained why I switched from Senator Clinton(who I briefly supported after John Edwards withdrew from the race) to Senator Obama.
Events of the past month-and-a-half have confirmed to me that I made the right decision, and my mood has gone from depressed to downright angry.
In my mind, Hillary Clinton and her surrogates are demonstrating that they care more about her personal ambition than they do about winning the 2008 election. As I write, it is being gift-wrapped for Bush light, Senator McCain.
Perfectly illustrative of the type of politics the Democrats need to purge from the party is the latest salvo from Mr. Mary Matalin, James Carville.
In commenting about New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson's recent endorsement of Obama, Carville called the endorsement "an act of betrayal" and then had this to add: "Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic."
How pathetic that the man who is married to one of the top operatives in the GOP thinks this is all a game. How else to explain his decision to so discredit one of the top Hispanic politicians in America, because Richardson allegedly owes the Clintons loyalty for past high positions he was given in Bill Clinton's administration.
I know one thing, any person who is endorsed by cowboy Carville is somebody I will keep my distance from. I find his insider political gamesmanship more than a tad revolting, and if anybody is a traitor, it is Carville. It is comments like that that must make his home life with Mary so much more harmonious, as it plays perfectly into the GOP game plan.
And Carville damn well knows it.
