OK, long post, please bear with me:

I would really love it if the whole "Liberal vs conservative" argument would just simply die off.  That way, those current members fo the tea party that really want to tackle the debt load and that alone wouldn't have to run with the psychos and crazies that are running the show over there.  Liberals who want to tackle reasonable health care reform and environmental issues wouldn't be saddled with the extremist groups that bomb factories and things like that.  The independents who just want to do the most intelligent thing possible wouldn't be caught in the crossfire of "LIB!!"  "CON!!" diatribes.

Yes, the left has it's loonies...but they tolerate them, and every so often, give them limited platforms to get their point across. Conservatives worship their loonies.  Yes, there's no other way to say it.  People the likes of Jindall, Bachmann, Limbaugh, Aikin, Palin, Hannity, McConnell, Ryan, and all the others are just complete LOONS!  Fruitcakes!  Diagnose-ably mentally incompetent for adult life!  Complete total and utter loonies, with NO ideas, NO intent to do anything positive, and not even the remotest attempts at being human beings.  And conservatives WORSHIP these people.

Look, I've got issues with the left, but I have completely discarded the right.  NO idea that they can come up with is not stained and tainted by the stink of the crazy train they've been riding for the last three decades. The entire GOP needs to be scrapped, stripped down to a few core moderates, and re-built from the ground up.  We need conservatives.  There.  I said it.  We need them.  They are a 'second check', or a 'cautionary voice' in the continual march forward towards a better nation, a better society.  They make sure that new ideas are given proper 'vetting' before charging in and implementing them.

But in their current incarnation, they aren't doing that.  They are fully intent on marching backward.  Completely and totally backward.  Fully intent on rolling back hundreds of years of progress, scientific achievement, and social justice, all "In the name of God".  And unfortunately for them, the "God" they refer to would in no way, shape or form endorse their ideals.

Faux News is doing that because Carville is a little goofy looking and an ecentric. Foxy News likes to hire Democrats/liberals who they can pose as " see how screwed up/different liberals are?"

its like parading a mexican midget around to imply that all mexicans are deficient in some way.  its a subconscious thing.

ole' Fuks News is just doing what Propaganda Artists do.

oldest game in the book.

hell, Hitler did the same with Jews in his propaganda films.  he'd have the most screwed up looking Jews as an example of your average Jew.

i'm not saying Carville is ugly,  just unique looking and very intelligient.   the last one is something Foxy News will suffer the consequences of.  they just don't know it yet.

Can't blame the man for wanting to share commute time with his wife (who is also a Fox news contributor).

Besides:  I'm sure they hired him because his histrionic style will easily allow them to make him look like a
drooling idiot.  All of their 'liberal' commentators are intended to look like loons to contrast them to the
buttoned down 'normal' conservatives.

A Cave Geek: Saiga410: A Cave Geek: Tricky Chicken: For Kerry it was 'flip flops' or perhaps you don't understand the word moron?

And which one sunk Mitt?  (I think there were several, personally)

Easily the 47%

While I can see the argument for that...I wonder what the context had to do with it, rather than the comment itself?

Perhaps: "Corporations are people, my friend "
or: "I like being able to fire people who provide services to me."
possibly: "I'm not concerned about the very poor."

Kerry was a pandering weakling.  But Mitt was just horrid.  How someone like him could have even gotten INTO the primaries is a real puzzler  a factor of money.

(Fixed that for myself)


Just something to consider:  you're trying to have a reasoned argument with someone that voted for Mitt Romney and was proud of it.

Smoking GNU: "Fox News announced it hired longtime Democratic strategist-cum-pundit James Carville as a network contributor ...."

What the hell is a cum pundit supposed to be??


I thought that was what Roger Ailes calls his female "correspondents" and "reporters."

Carville is in many ways a perfect foil for some of the conservative Fox News pundits. He is sharp as a tack and merciless in a debate. Confrontation is his middle name.

He's on a bunch and this was mentioned a month or two back. Kucinich joined a while back, as did Austin Goolsbee. Fox news gets a little needed respectability from these hires and these guys get to insert some democratic messaging to moderate the derp. Its not a move towards the center or anything as it doesn't change the narratives, but it does allow democrats to reach more thoughtful segments of their audience to show them their positions are not as comical as shown.

Tricky Chicken: Leishu: Danger Mouse:  flip flopping


Heh. It's cute how you think playing that card doesn't make you look like a moron.

You think it does? that was wat sunk him.
just like Dukakis Mondale was sunk by 'i will raise your taxes'
Carter was sunk by 'malaise'
Dole was sunk by 'bob dole, bob dole'
Bush I was sunk by 'read my lips'

It is often a single perception that takes a candidate out.

For Kerry it was 'flip flops' or perhaps you don't understand the word moron?


FTFY

Dukakis was sunk by his tank picture plus Lee Atwater cranking up the negative PR machine and mentioning "Willie Horton" 50,000 times to suburban white voters.

Huh? anyone remotely familliar with John Kerry knows he's a flip flopping pandering douche bag, and that was well before the presidential "I was for the war before I was against it" ad.

Um, that's a pretty accurate description of Kerry. He was the Democrats' version of Romney and it still amazes me how the Democratic primary voters were stupid enough to pick him as the candidate that year.

/it should've been Dean
//don't know if could have won against W but he certainly would have put up a better fight

dripping with sarcasm: Tricky Chicken: Granny_Panties: His wife is a Republican. I often wonder if he purposefully sunk John Kerry's Presidential run. I don't understand why Kerry hired him in the first place. The guy seems like a little sell out worm.

Wasn't he key in the Clinton victories? Not Sure.

If he was, that doesn't sound like a sell out to me.

He made his name with the Clinton campaign.

Yea,  Kerry lost because of Carville, not the fact that John Kerry is a massive flip flopping arrogant douche.

James Carville did not have any meaningful role in Kerry Campaign that would allowed him to purposely sink it.
