MTP James Carville and Mary Matalin on this morning, don't bother
to tune in utterly disgusting, the gloating of Russert and Matalin.

1. Thanks!
I wasn't sure whether to turn TV on at all this morning. Campbell Brown totally whored on Matthews. Can't take much more of this.

14. This shit was "quaint" back in the Clinton era.
Now it's just unwatchable.

We knew it all along but never "admitted" it: just an ugly southern inbred one-trick pony who "coined a phrase", and his ugly douchebag beltway-wannabe wife.

Political affiliation non-specific.

I don't even have to "look away" in horror. The remote does it for me.

42. Why take their shit?
What will happen if you do not watch it? I stopped watching the WHORES and I have to say I am now metally stable for the first time in 10 months!

2. I don't intend to ruin my Beautiful Mind with things ...
like Mary Matalin's and Russert's drivel. And if she's such a traditonal, Republican, evangelical woman, why doesn't she change her name to Carville?

Why did Dr. Laura work while her child was growing up, when she yells at those who do the same thing now?

Oh, yeah, what a bunch of hypocrites.

5. Carville is making an utter jackass out of himself, with people like
this Democrats better get ready for more losses and soon a "National Party No More".

10. Could You Explain...I Thought He Was OK...
He was for fighting...not giving up and giving in and he called just what a radical change was coming...I think he's right...These people will turn America upside down if we can't stop them..

29. I would be too.
With the wicked whore of politics for a wife.

What did he EVER see in her, does he have a masochistic streak?? He could have any dem woman he wanted, yet he chose harpy bizarre. I know they have kids together, at this point he is probably too scared to divorce her because of the kids, she would be a typical repuke byatch and make it hell for him.

Dear James, what have you gotten yourself into? Sometimes I think they are all about the benjamins anyway.

6. Well, in Dr. Laura's case,
Her hubby stayed home and became "my kid's Mom". Or so she says. I only listen to her on rare occasions now (her time slots keep changing) and only to get a good chuckle as I ponder what on EARTH would compel ANYONE to call her for "advice about a moral dilemma". She really should fold up her tent and crawl off into the desert, but as long as there are those who listen, call and pay to advertise, I guess she'll be there, ranting around about the "moral decay" of our country. I'm sure she'll applaud when all of us evil liberals are locked away. America will be a WHOLE lot better then. yeah, right.

7. I've turned it all off
No more "news" shows, and, especially, no more talking heads. They're meaningless, and, worse, upsetting. Cable is worse than network.

Matalin and Carville are neighbors of ours in Northern VA. I really cannot tell you what a shrew she is and how nice he is. But, I'm awfully tired of their stretching out their fifteen minutes of fame. They have nothing to say, and, like all the other "experts," all they do is pollute the atmosphere.

Better to read a good novel or take a nice, long walk/bubble bath/nap. Or watch a Charlie Chaplin movie. The Food Network. Comedy Central.

Anything but the "experts."

11. Do you think it's possible that their children are attractive?
Me neither.

Anyway, I haven't watched one speck of news since election night. I can't even stand to hear the shrub's name mentioned or the sound of his stupid voice.

I get my news from yahoo and the DU.

and socking away lots of $$$ for them.I don't want to get all eugenicist, but I imagine those are some very unattractive offspring.

38. There use to be a saying
Two uglies make a pretty. Now, I am not saying that they both are ugly but it's a possibly that they didn't take after their mother. Hopefully the girls will grow up with an opinion of their own.

9. I Watched It And Got Really Mad...
When Mary said this was the greatest economy and better than Clinton's. She was not challenged by James on that but James did call attention to the dems caving on the latest tax cut for special interests...

I think James has the right idea but Russert is nothing but a fat, pumpkin-headed whore...

I have been able to wean myself off of some of these programs...but not entirely...It's good if you can...

12. I hate Matalin so much that I hate Carville for living with her.
It shows how much a 'game' politics is. We have passion for the life and death possibilities that politics are and they play it as a game and their livelihoods.

13. exactly
I couldn't agree with you more. Carville just plays the game same as his wife. They just play for different sides. I used to admire the man but I've come to dislike him immensely.

16. Ah...the Mutt and Jeff comedy hour. Carville is just part of the RW
pretend-liberal team set up for our enjoyment. He needs to be put out of business. It's all just a charade for him at our expense.

17. Unfortunately we have Hillbilly Cable
which means the Big Three ( the Impotent Big Three .)
So I did the hopeless three-channel search this am, trying to find something to keep the eleven-year-old occupied while I managed my morning caffiene fix.

As usual, I flipped and found nada, and turned it off after the hazy image of Carvie Baby appeared. It bothered me because i had no feelings one way or the other toward that monkey, and I used to be glued to Sunday Morning political shows ( screaming and throwing things, but watching nonetheless.)

Carvie and his ilk are no longer needed. They are the 90's, man. It's time for a new direction and for new leaders to step forward and stop selling this party out to get a tiny gain somewhere or to pad their own resumes.

We won. The Christo-Fascists stole the election. WE don't have to change. But our leaders must change.....

32. It seems to me that Carville and Matalin are more entertainers than
legitimate political analysts. Seems to me they are capitalizing upon the past political connections. I think Carville past his prime and simply looking for jobs to support himself--they must both be pretty well off by now. Time to write a book and do a book tour.

We need new blood.

35. The ONLY good thing I can say about Mary Matalin is ...
that's she really not a homophobe. I heard an interview with her a couple of years ago and she said that she believes the Republicans are correct on every issue except civil unions for gays and lesbians. Said her neighbors are a gay couple and they are very dear friends and her kids adore them. She said the Republicans need to get past all the hysteria and support civil unions. That's the ONLY thing she's ever said that was in any way rational.

I think we probably don't know what any of these paid hacks REALLY believe, if anything. They are paid to spout their ideological lines and I doubt we have a lot of sincere people in the media whore group. They just know who's buttering their bread. I've heard Carville and Matalin say they never discuss politics at home. I think they are both a couple of cynics just in it for the cash.

Inasmuch as Carville and Matalin are devout Catholics, I doubt they would ever split.

36. So did Mary treat James...
...like the crazy uncle in the attic? I'm not wild about either but why he continues to put up with her condescending shit is beyond me.

I don't know why "serious" news shows book those two. They aren't funny or even newsworthy anymore; they're like watching a nightmare vaudeville routine.

43. I watched it this morning because I wanted to see the 2 whores in action.
They are the perfect representation of how the national Democratic and Republican parties are nothing more than the two heads of the same ruling class.

For all who wonder how they can possibly be married to each other but work for "different sides" -- the answer is simple. There is only ONE side, the side of the ruling class.
