Scott Bateman's Latest Political Animation: James Carville's Oxygen-Fueled Rant about, Er, Ah...Hmmm

James Carville wants someone fired. Because of, um, well, stuff and such. Kinda hard to glean. Check out Scott Bateman's latest, which is funny "ha ha," not funny, as in "Christ, that Carville guy seems kinda funny."

Actual Audio: James Carville Wants The President To Fire Somebody from scottbateman on Vimeo.

Carville and wife Mary Matalin.
Yeah, right, but WTF is James Carville, anyway? He's an outspoken and highly histrionic Democratic political consultant who's best known for being Clinton's campaign manager in 1992. He's managed lots of campaigns, but became a "talking head" on various broadcast outlets in the decades since. Apparently he still does political consulting. He's married to Mary Matalin, a vociferous republican and consultant--and talking head, like her husband. When the two of them get together on national TeeVee, watch out! It's a political sitcom and the hijinks will ensue! According to Wikipedia, Matalin was an assistant to President GW Bush and counselor to his vice president, Dick "Go Fuck Yourself" Cheney.

Here's what his web site says about his Clinton years:
Having wounded the sitting President in 1991, Carville finished the job the following year, when he guided william Jefferson Clinton to the Presidency in 1992. Carville was honored as Campaign Manager of the year by the American Association of Political Consultants for his leadership of Clinton's fearsome and intense "War Room" at campaign headquarters in Little Rock.

And that's about all I'll ever have to say about that. Oh, wait, just this: when I used to live and work on Capitol Hill, I did once see Carville walking his two tiny dogs in Stanton Park. It was a strange site, because Carville, who looks like an alien basketball player, towered over the tiny creatures, who looked like they were taking him to their leader...
