Quote of the Day
According to the WSJ, the only thing Novakula did wrong on his CNN appearance was fail to defend their honor in a more physical fashion when Carville goaded him by saying the “Wall Street Journal editorial page is watching. You show ’em you’re tough…”
Via Think Progress (‘cos I’m not giving a dime to the WSJ):
â€œMr. Novak has since appropriately apologized for losing his cool, but Mr. Carville is lucky he didnâ€™t get punched in the nose.â€
â€œMr. Carville is the professional political wrestler, but CNN has asked only Mr. Novak to take a vacation.â€
â€œThe members of the liberal press pack owe Mr. Novak an apology, not vice versa.â€
From Alan in the comments:
I really would like to see Novak, cadaverous swivel chair hussar, attempt to punch Carville, ex-Marine, in the nose. I really would.
It would surpass Paris Hiltonâ€™s boink video as the most downloaded video of all time. Crooks and Liars would have to expand to Google-class bandwidth.
I bow down before Alan. “Cadaverous swivel chair hussar?” That’s genius. I don’t think I can ever bring up Novak again without invoking that description. Brilliant.
