As appalling at Matalin's letter is, the worst part is that James Carville added his name and allowed his position to be tied into this. Washington DC elitism in a declaration for status over behavior. He is an abhorrent choice to be the messenger for any real message to be provided by the Democratic Party, and seems to me to be on the fast train to DickMorristown.

I'd like to see somebody in mainstream leadership of the Democratic Party kick Carville in the nuts about this, publicly. This elitism is disgusting.

Maybe we should write a children's book for them! I've got a rough draft for the final chapter:

"Then stop lying so much," said the judge, and sent Mr. Scooter to jail for 30 months.

--THE END --

(Was going to comment on Carville co-signing, but Wayne beat me to it.)

Now I can't stop thinking about that: a more conventional children's book style might be "Mr. Judge." But do I want conventional, or do I want to push the tykes' little envelopes?

Also: the next to last chapter could be along the lines of:
"Please, Mr. Judge, let Mr. Scooter go free, he loves children and children love him", warbled Miss Wren.
"Please, Mr. Judge, let Mr. Scooter go free, he did it to keep us all safe," purred Mr. Fox.
"Please, Mr. Judge, let Mr. Scooter go free, he was only following orders," growled Mr. Cheney. But he didn't actually say that out loud.

Finally, it was Mr. Scooter's turn. "Gee, I have a whole lot of friends -- important friends! I can't believe you'll actually send me to jail! Please don't! I don't like jail!

Then the final chapter.

A particularly sunny and experienced character could helpfully offer, "But Mr. Scooter, not all criminals go to jail!" And that will set the stage for Mr. Scooter's redemption in time for him to serve at the pleasure of the next rogue president.

As for Carville, I'm not at all surprised that he signed on. D.C. is a nest of vipers. What really surprises me is that there aren't any other prominent Dems on the list and some media figures as well.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.
