That is up there with the stupidest things I've ever heard. Via.
Because, you know, we just haven't beaten this dead horse long enough.
Via Maureen Dowd's column, "Can We Get Hillary Without the Foolery?":
It’s such a silly question. Of course Hillary is running. I’ve never met a man who was told he could be president who didn’t want to be president. So naturally, a woman who’s told she can be the first commandress in chief wants to be.
“Running for president is like sex,” James Carville told me. “No one ever did it once and forgot about it.”
But enough about Hillary. We have president/sex snarkitude to indulge in:
1. If running for president is like sex, then it's clear that a whole lot of candidates are in dire need of Viagra.
2. Memorable, sure. But pleasurable? Team Romney, your thoughts?
3. Wait. We all know Carville knows a thing or two about presidential campaigns. He's never had forgettable sex? (Bygones)
4. If running for president was like sex for George W. Bush (pass the brain bleach), that explains why he screwed the country.
5. Is there a morning after pill?
6. Or mirth control?
7. Why are we the ones who need protection?
8. Running for president is like sex, huh? To Republicans, more like a one blight stand.
9. Yet so many anti-choice Republicans have aborted campaigns.
10. If a candidate feels pressured into running, is it "legitimate" sex?
11. And if a candidate pulls out early... ?
I could go on forever. I'm done now. Your turn.
During former President Bill Clinton’s campaign, when he ran against then-President George H.W. Bush, James Carville coined the phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid,” which referred to Clinton being a better choice because Bush wasn't focused on the economy.
Last night, Willard M. Romney said this:
Carville shot back in a DCCC fundraising letter called “Mitt stole my line”:
“In Romney’s speech bashing President Obama last night, he said it’s still about the economy and we’re not stupid,” the letter read in part. “Yeah, it still is about the economy stupid. It’s about how hucksters like Mitt crashed it, the middle class paid the price, and the 1 percent got more tax cuts.”
