Carville and Begala have a new book out

I saw it last night in the bookstore. Considered buying it. But then I said, "Fuck it!"

These guys had their chance to be part of the solution instead of the problem two years ago. Instead, they are like the old sixties rock band trying to make a comeback by doing covers of grunge hits from the 80s

(There's a good thread over at dKos describing their appearance on the Today show promoting their book. Short version: everything they are saying Howard Dean said three years ago. This despite the fact that Carville and Begala were major Dean detractors in 2003.)

And enough with the cover photos where Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum adopt the "We're tough! Can't you see how tough we are! Just look at our eyes! Grrrr!"

It's a shame really. Carville and Begala were great strategists who were ruined by their success. They now have an over-inflated sense of their own self-importance that blinds them both from their own failings and to the good ideas that are coming from other quarters.

"Not Invented Here" should be there motto.
