Bacchanalian Mondays: Cajun Style!

James Carville. Whenever Carville could come on television during the Clinton years or Bush's campaign for president, I remember that my mother would cringe and change the channel. James Carville is, apparently, a bad man.

Why? Nooo idea (except for his face.) It also may have something to do with the fact that he was the lead strategist in Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign. That fact is probably enough to seal his reputation's fate in conservative circles.

But the really neat thing about Carville is that in 1993 he actually married Mary Matalin, a woman who was one of George H.W. Bush's top political consultants. They have two daughters. How they manage to maintain a harmonious relationship while being active in two diametrically opposed political ideologies is beyond me. But I think that's awesome.

Not only is Carville super into politics, but he's also somehow channeled his success into the film world, appearing in such shows and movies as "Old School," "Wedding Crashers," "Family Guy," and "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford."

So far, the last two BM installments have come from 30 Rock. Maybe next week I'll write an entry about how I should be partying with Tina Fey (in character as Sarah Palin?)
