Don't get mad. Don't get even. Just get elected, then get even.
Carville quotes
Who cares? Sometimes you need rebirth. (On the destruction of America)

Let me buy a [security] pass ... so that they can scan me and and search me and measure my penis, then let me get on the plane.




Carville James quotes
John McCain, if you liked the last eight, you are going to love the next four.
Carville James
Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic.
James Carville quotes
What I'm suggesting is, stand for yourself, be for something and the hell with it. Because the hand-wringers and the editorialists and the sigh-and-pontificate crowd will be against you, whatever you do.
James Carville
At the beginning of the Clinton administration in the early 1990s, adviser James Carville was stunned at the power the bond market had over the government. If he came back, Carville said: I used to think if there was reincarnation, I wanted to come back as the president or the pope or a .400 baseball hitter. But now I want to come back as the bond market. You can intimidate everybody.
Carville James quotes
Yeah, I graduated with a 4.0… blood alcohol level.
Carville
Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you'll find.
Carville James
You can call the dogs in, wet the fire, and leave the house. The hunt's over.

Between Paoli and Penn Hills, Pennsylvania is Alabama without the blacks. They didn't film "The Deerhunter" there for nothing — the state has the second-highest concentration of NRA members, behind Texas.




James Carville quotes
Whenever I hear a campaign talk about a need to energize the base, that's a campaign that's going down the toilet. It's a pretty good indication that they're not eating up any territory, they can't get anybody in the center to support them, they're getting shelled back into their own bunker.
James Carville
Elections are about fucking your enemies. Winning is about fucking your friends.
Carville quotes
When it comes to being visionary in stealing, the Republicans do better than anybody. It's really something to see.
Carville James
Washington is a dirty diaper. It's time for a change.
Carville James quotes
Look, if George W. Bush and his Republican cronies walked on water, I'd be the guy out there yelling that they couldn't swim. But don't take it from me: we've now heard it from the military commanders and our intelligence community: George Bush's actions in Iraq have not made us safer. They've done the opposite.
James Carville
Pennsylvania is Philadelphia and Pittsburgh with Alabama in between.
James Carville quotes
Republicans want smaller government for the same reason crooks want fewer cops: it's easier to get away with murder.
James Carville
We didn't find the key to the electoral lock...we just picked it.
Carville James
Back in 2000 a Republican friend warned me that if I voted for Al Gore and he won, the stock market would tank, we'd lose millions of jobs, and our military would be totally overstretched. You know what? I did vote for Al Gore, he did win, and I'll be damned if all those things didn't come true!
