Posted on 06/27/2012 7:46:42 PM PDT by bimboeruption
Liberal political consultant James Carville sent a fundraising email to supporters of upstate New York congresswoman Louise Slaughter entitled The Tea Party is Over. In the email, Mr. Carville claimed the Tea Party isnt entirely finished, but he said they can be eliminated by donating to proud Democrats like Louise Slaughter.
These Tea Party Republicans have worn out their welcome. But Im telling you getting rid of em wont be easy. Theyre not leaving on their own. Were going to have to boot them out the door like unwanted house guests, Mr. Carville wrote. Thats why weve got to get behind proud Democrats like Louise Slaughter to make sure we can win a Democratic Majority.
Mr. Carville pointed to the conservative mega donors Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers as evidence Democrats need to open their wallets if they want to take out the Tea Party and win a majority in Congress.
With the Koch boys, Mr. Rove and a Fat Cat Las Vegas casino mogul writing multi-million dollar checks to try and buy this election, its going to take every last one of us kicking in what we can to make sure we reelect good folks like Louise and win a Democratic Majority, Mr. Carville wrote.
Ms. Slaughter is facing a challenge from Republican Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks. Ms. Slaughter currently has $670,189 cash on hand compared to Ms. Brooks $367,583. Despite Ms. Slaughters financial advantage, Ms. Brooks is seen as a formidable candidate and is rather popular in the district, which is favorable to Democrats, but grew more Republican through redistricting.
We were outmaneuvered.
This time. Temporarily.
*wink, wink*, Carville.

Heh, just read this elsewhere... If the Tea Party is over, then the Democratic electorate is also over. Maybe the two are intertwined?
Wasn’t he the same idiot who said 2 years ago that the recession is over?
He may have a point there!
LOL Dream on, James. We have had 7 victories so far this election and it’s just the primary elections. You Dems are toast in November.
Carville says a lot of things. What he says isn’t always what he means. Interesting fella that one is. Don’t trust him but he’s always worth paying attention to.
Tea Party: James Carville is over.
Yet another obituary written by yet another jackass. As a TEA Party member, I’m starting to feel like “Big Jake”.
He's just full of BS....
Like the golf movie said... "in staggering proportions"...
Easier to raise lefty-money with lies...
.... liberals being unaccustomed to the truth.
We’ve hardly started, to be very honest. Yes allot of the people were co-opted by the establishment, not all though.
Did Carville write this, or the RNC?
How about the Occupy freeloaders? Where did they go? (Other than back to their mother's basement?)
Dick Lugar couldn’t be reached for comment.
Is this one of his wild fantasies?
Well, if it helps him perform...
He freaking dreams it’s over. And if and when the Tea Party becomes mainstream, we will abandon it and start something else.
I know God’s book says the serpent was the craftiest of all the animals in the field, but this particular serpenthead isn’t.
Besides who believes anything that comes out of his or his wife’s mouth anymore anyway?
I don’t think anyone was co-opted by the establishment.
The establishment still has control.
He’ll be called wrong by the first liberal that blames the TP for something.
I predict that will occur in less than 48 hours.
What Tea Party is he talking about? My granddaughter had a tea party with her friends last week and that is over, who would have thought he was so focused on little girls.
These Tea Party Republicans have worn out their welcome. But Im telling you getting rid of em wont be easy. Theyre not leaving on their own. Were going to have to boot them out the door like unwanted house guests
Did Carville write this, or the RNC?
Now that response is funny - sad, but very funny.
Well, well, well...... James... as for the T.E.A. Party here in Wisconsin... How did that recall election turn out for ya?
BWAAAAAAAA BWAAAAAAAAAAA HHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAA HHHHAAAAAA
We just don’t whine in public. We’re right here and we aren’t going anywhere except to the POLLS in November. Get that wastebasket ready, James!
I think that more so than most Dems/socialists/Marxists, Mister Carville is fully aware that he is lying (and enjoys it.)
Is he dumping his wife too? I picture her as a tea party person or has she grown to become an Elite now?
Demonizing the other side including scare tactics is standard fundraising fare.
Didn’t he write a book a while ago saying the Dems would win elections for the next 40 years?
I think he wrote it right after Obama’s election.
The 2010 election made him look prophetic. Indeed!
James wrote this. You can’t tell? When did the RNC ever get this nasty? Pure Carville.
Carville better find his size 6 1/2 trash can. He’ll be wearing it again soon.
But I get your point!
Certainly one of the oddest characters around. An absolute goofball.
“James Carville: The Tea Party Is Over”
So is your hair.
Haven’t heard much from ol’ Captain Cueball in some time now.
Hey Jim - don’t you find it hard to breathe with your head up your @$$ all the time? Just wondering.
How can any of you have respect for his wife? Louise S. This dragon has to be an alien & just what? He’s a serpent. Just a consequence, huh?
When he dropped out of the news for the past few years, I thought he’d died. Well, condolences anyway.
He's always been a nasty little creature.
Hey, James, this is a great fundraising idea for Maggie Brooks.
I study the issues. I vote the way I vote. I am the Tea Party.
