naughty little monkey
I don't know why, but I love stuff like this. Bob Novak, on some talking heads program, told James Carville, after some really rather gentle ribbing, that "This is Bullshit" and stormed off the set. I don't know what the spin here is going to be, but Carville's jabs, given the forum, were certainly within bounds; much less than what any visitor to Sean Hannity's show is likely to recieve.

Actually, I've watched several clips with Carville, and for the most part I'm impressed. I thoroughly disagree with him, and I think he looks like a space alien (why dosen't that dude grow some freaking hair already?), but despite that he has been very smart and very personable. He does what all talking head strive for and so few can actually manage: to be both entertaining and forcefully informative, knowledgable but not condescending, self-effacing but still confident, he has a sense of humor but still gets his serious points across.

Mind you, this is all based on a few clips I've caught on the web, so I could be completely off target, but I like what I've seen.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
