James Carville’s Suggestion For Handling “Low Quality” Republican Extremists

Democratic political consultant James Carville cautioned Democrats about engaging in “tit-for-tat” exchanges with “low quality” individuals in Congress in an interview with Andersen Cooper on Monday.

Speaking in reference to the latest attacks on Democrats by GOP extremists Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Paul Gosar, Carville’s suggestion is to let them “dwell in their own stupidity.”

Carville, who advised former President Bill Clinton, said Democrats should instead focus on promoting what they’re trying to do for their districts and the country because a “volley” with the far-right Republicans is “not the place you want to be.”

The response cannot be, “We see your crazy and we’ll raise you another crazy,” Carville continued. “The response is, ‘We’re not getting in this game.’”

“The danger is getting bogged down and spending 48 hours on a censure resolution,” said Carville. “These are just bad people, they are not going to change their behavior at all. And it doesn’t do you any good to engage with them.”
