James Carville's reputation as a left wing Democrat is in serious jeopardy. He may very well be a Democrat by label, but his recent actions bring his political inclinations into question. His criticism of the Bush Administration and their propensity for lying has been revealed as nothing but showmanship. The website "the smoking gun.com" is displaying a copy of a letter to Judge Walton requesting leniency in sentencing for Scooter Libby.
Most political strategist would agree that the most powerful politician is one who can plant spies amongst his enemies and control what appears to be the opposition. Carville is in the mainstream media almost daily crowing about the GOP and their shortcomings. He has made a very lucrative career out of framing himself as an aggressive pro-left pundit. It is now obvious that what we really have is a fox in the hen house. Carville strongly criticized the Bush administration for attacking Joe Wilson and revealing the identity of Valerie Plame. Now he requests leniency for the man designated by Dick Cheney to carry out that attack.
The obvious conclusion here is that James Carville is a GOP mole. The Democrats should act as they would with any other spy and completely severe ties with this man immediately. If this does not happen, the Party Leaders should be brought to task and their allegiance should also be questioned.
