Carville: Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation
Political commentator James Carville joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline and was jokingly grilled about a book {Read about book here} he’d written in 2009 claiming Democrats would rule the White House for forty years. In the book, Carville proclaimed that the Democrats would “easily defeat the opposition for years to come. Republicans have sealed their current fate by persisting in ignoring the political middle and appealing to their ultraconservative base,” Carville wrote. When confronted on today’s show with his own words, Carville tried to back pedal. “I think the premise of the book is still on track,” he argued. “Democrats have still won four out of the last five Presidential elections. I would be willing to make a good size wager that Obama will be re-elected,” said Carville. After the landslide Republican victory this past November, we’re sure there are plenty of conservatives who would be willing to take you up on your wager Mr. Carville.
Alec Baldwin’s Brother Angry At Sean
Alec Baldwin’s brother, Stephen, is boiling mad at comments Sean said jokingly on his radio program that Hannity was “Alec Baldwin’s favorite radio talk-show host,” referencing a 2006 radio blowout between the two {Listen to the exclusive audio here}. Shortly thereafter, Alec Baldwin posted on the Huffington Post that,“Hannity is the Larry Flynt of talk-radio. And he has about as much influence in the world of American public affairs as Flynt. It must be hard for these rabid right-wing types to watch their heroes fall.” On Tuesday’s radio show Sean played several clips from Alec’s notorious expletive-laced voicemail messages to his eleven year old daughter, to the horror of a steaming Stephen Baldwin. Stephen fired off a quote to The New York Posts’ Page Six stating, “This behavior by Hannity is the stupidity that people often refer to when they think of George W. Bush and Sarah Palin. If he needs to lower himself to petty stupidity, then he needs to get off the radio.” Sean fought back telling his radio audience on Wednesday that Alec Baldwin needs to fight his own battles and not have brother Stephen do his dirty work. “Alec trash-mouths all the time, including me, and it’s too bad he needs his little brother to defend him,” Hannity said. “I don’t need lectures from any Baldwin on conservatism, religion, politics or anything else. That’s one screwed-up bunch.” For more on this duel click here.
