Clinton adviser left in the lurch?

September 14, 2009

Blog Guy, whatever happened to James Carville, that bald Cajun political adviser to Bill Clinton? You know, the guy who married that actress Marlee Matlin?

Actually, I think Carville married Mary Matalin, the Republican consultant.

Isn’t that what I said? So what’s Carville up to these days?

I think he’s a brain-eater now.

Excuse me? A brain WHAT?

It’s the darndest thing. I was looking at pictures of zombies at the Toronto Film Festival a couple of days ago, and I’m SURE I saw Carville among them.

That’s amazing! Isn’t that like a really big story? Former Presidential Adviser Now Eats Brains?

Nah, here in Washington that’s not such a big deal. Remember that similar post I had a few weeks ago.

Ah, right, the Hillary Clinton one. So then what’s Mary Matalin doing now? Has she got any new movies coming out?

I don’t know. I’m so confused now…
