mtp-carville-whipped.jpg The strange bedfellows relationship between Mary Matalin and James Carville may have been considered a novelty at one time, but the novelty wore off a long time ago. In fact, it's painfully obvious that it's done nothing for Democrats for a long time -- and it's high time we put an end the notion that James Carville is an ally of -- or should ever be considered a legitimate spokesman for -- the left. He talks a good game, but let's not forget his support for Scooter Libby or the phone call he made to Matalin the day after the 2004 presidential election, alerting her to John Kerry's decision to contest the provisional ballots in Ohio which ultimately resulted in a call to Cheney and a heads up to Republican Secretary of State for Ohio, Kenneth Blackwell...and we know how that turned out.

Watching this clip from this morning's Meet The Press there's no doubt who wears the pants in this relationship. Watch Carville giggle like a school boy as Matalin makes a veiled sexual reference toward him. James has been proven to put his relationship before his job time and time again. I have no problem with that, what they do in their relationship is none of our business -- until it becomes a liability and then we have to speak out and do something about it.
