The Party of "No Way"

I love Mary Matelin, this guy's wife. But how she ever married James Carville--or stays married to him--is beyond me.

So here's brilliant Democrat strategist James Carville, talking this weekend about the political advantage of letting Republicans kill health care reform: “Put a bill out there, make them filibuster it, make them be what they are, the party of no,” Carville said. “Let them kill it. Let them kill it with the interest group money, then run against them. That's what we ought to do.”

I've got news for you, James. The Republican Party is not the "Party of No." It's the party of "No Way Are We Going to Let You Shove This Crap Sandwich Down Our Throats."

Um, James, one other thing: Which party owns the White House? Which party owns the Senate? Which party owns the House of Representatives? Which party has enough votes, theoretically anyway, for a filibuster-proof vote? Come on, James, which party, exactly, is the real "Party of No"?
