Jim Neal (NC-Sen) Leaves James Carville Speechless

Pam over at Pam's House Blend posted about James Carville getting his comeuppance after speaking at the North Carolina Young Democrats conference over the weekend. Jim Neal took exception to Carville's remarks and his shilling for "Neal's opponent and Chuck Schumer/DSCC-backed candidate Kay Hagan" for the May 6th democratic primary. Hagan is also all for Telecom immunity. Jim Neal is an endorsed candidate by Blue America '08.

Ryan Teague Beckwith at The News & Observer's Under the Dome has the skinny on what happened, and here's a great photo of people laughing at reacting to Carville as he was steamrolled into silence by Neal:

At one point, Carville said that North Carolina has a great Senate candidate in Kay Hagan, noting that he had just spoken with her daughter, Carrie.

Neal, who is running against Hagan for the Democratic nomination, spoke out from the back of the room.

"I said, 'We have primaries here in North Carolina. We don't have coronations,'" Neal said later.

He said Carville did not respond. "It was the first time I've ever seen him quiet," Neal said.
