James Carville, or “Snake Head” as he is known both at home and among Democratic fans elsewhere, is the immensely talented political strategist – perhaps the best since FDR employed Louis Howe – who helped propel Bill Clinton to the Whitehouse with the simple four word message “It’s the Economy, stupid”.
Last night he appeared on the MSNBC show The 11th Hour Without Brian Williams to dish some free advice to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
To paraphrase: Quit worrying who uses toilets that don’t work, teach your state’s children something useful like what effect of 87 degree seawater has on Florida, push away the fried chicken and mashed potatoes, get your ass to South Texas, hire some immigrants and bus them back to Florida where they are needed to clean up and rebuild post-Ian, and… you wind your watch and scratch your ass – not the other way around.
Oh, he also came up with a new mantra for Democrats “It’s the stupidity, stupid.”
Take it away James…
Carville: Listen to me Ron DeKatrina.. push the fried chicken and the mashed potatoes and the gravy back.. You can suspend your toilet patrols who’s using which bathroom because none of the toilets are working in southwest Florida.. pic.twitter.com/EStWTezAnC

This man should still be involved the Dems strategy and messaging. No one gets it like James gets it.

I'm beginning to think Carville doesn't care much for Ron the Con Deathsantis?

The consensus seems to be President Biden should hire Carville and make him the messaging Czar.
James and his Carvilleisms, with an able assist from Transportation Pete… I think those two could make a compelling case for Biden and us Democrats.
