Shooting Yourself In The Foot (With a Syringe)

OK, I’m almost ready to possibly think about considering buying into the wild conspiracy theories that Kerry is just marking time so that Hillary can run in 2008. Because they would certainly explain away this quote from James Carville:

Frothing-at-the-mouth Democrat attack dog James Carville is accusing Republican Party officials of drugging Sen. Zell Miller for media appearances after his speech to the GOP convention last week.

“They probably shot him up with something,” the wild-eyed Ragin’ Cajun insisted Wednesday during an interview with radio host Don Imus.

Do you really want to be talking about drugs when and your current candidate has yet to release his medical records, and according to ABC News, your most revered president took “as many as 12 medications at once, taking more during times of stress”?

Despite his “Ragin’ Cajun” image, Carville’s been around the block enough times to know not to say anything asinine that’s going to be picked up, amplified and analyzed by the media during this period of maximum coverage. So why would he make a gaffe like that?

Update: Lori Byrd of PoliPundit notes more Kerry-damaging silliness from Carville.
