Hilarious.

Just now on CNN’s Inside Politics, in the midst of a ho-hum discussion about Katherine Harris’ Senate race:

Novak: Just let me finish what I’m going to say, James, please. I know you hate to hear me —

Carville: He’s got to show these right-wingers that he’s got a back bone, ya know? Wall Street Journal editorial page is watching. You show ‘em you’re tough…

Novak: You know I think that’s ********. And I hate that. Just let it go.

Novak removes his microphone and walks off the set.

Seems like the pressure is getting to Novak.

I'm no fan of Novak, but Carville is the missing link they're looking for on another thread.

Carville's a troll, but traitors' knuckles drag the ground more often. It's scientifically proven. ;)

How Judith Miller is behind bars, while Novak (who started this whole Plame mess) walks free is beyond me.

It is awesome. I'm only partly kidding. I have an unnatural fascination with the puppet animation of Ray Harryhausen.

And that statement has what to do with Kathleen Harris and her run for office? Oh well. I know that Carville and Novak are not politicians anyhow... just talkers.

However, it sounds like a personal attack. If Carville said that in the RZ non-BB side, he would get a warning about being suspended. But par for the course for James and his fellow mouthpieces. If you cannot give something of substance, then come forth with one-liners and personal attacks. Sounds like James needs to stay on the topic at hand or find something of substance to say about the topic at hand.

I think James should ask Robert where he got that backbone. Perhaps that place can get James a new face?!? ;)

Well if anyone would know about personal attacks...

Yeah, those Democrats need to ease up on the ad hominen attacks. They have the market cornered on those. I heard the patent office will be issuing them protection from copyright infringement. :)

Ah... but there is a difference, Dom. I am not talking or typing to James Carville. James, on this CNN show, was talking to Robert Novak with who knows how many viewers. And James was not talking about the issue, Katherine Harris, when he upset Robert. James, a smart man in his own right, lowered himself to a Michael Moore level.

I wish Robert would have said something like, "James, if political talk doesn't work out perhaps you can become a comedian. However, I would not expect you to be successful at it without a good writer. You own material just isn't funny. Now can we discuss the issue that brought us here?"

But this is why I do not take much credence in the TV mouthpieces. I like to make up my own mind and not let some overpaid-talker tell me their opinion.

Gwanji!

And way to go Jimmy Carville. Novak deserves a bonk on the head everytime he bobs up for air. The man's a joke and should be treated as such.

On a sidenote, I feel the same way about Judith Miller I did about 2 Live Crew. I'm behind her 100% on her refusal to talk, but it's hard to imagine a less talented poster child for the cause.

Hmmm, every time I hear things like this happen, I smell a work. I guess it's the pro-wrestling fan in me but it smells like a publicity stunt to help Novak's fading TV career. I can't believe he let a comment like that from Carville get to him. He's endured much worse on Crossfire and McLaughlin.

James Carville and Robert Novak have been going after each other for years with both remaining mostly civil to each other. Robert Novak was told by the moderator that he was going to ask him about the "Plame" case before the show. Bob knew what was coming and I wouldn't be suprised if Carville and Novak both worked out away to get him off before the question got asked. You all know that Carville is married to a Republican operative who works directly for the Vice President? It's not suprising to believe that Mary Matilin is near the center of the "Plame" Hurricane swirling around the the Greater Washington D.C. area.

Carville should have busted him hardway.

They're both worthless, so who cares? Not I.
