Wall Street Journal Defends Novak's Temper Tantrum

Being true to their Republican overlords, the Wall Street Journal's editorial staff has written a swell little ditty defending Robert Novak's actions and naughty, nuaghty word on CNN's live broadcast of Inside Politics last week.

Mr. Novak has since appropriately apologized for losing his cool,
but Mr. Carville is lucky he didn't get punched in the nose. After more
than four decades criticizing both Republicans and Democrats, Mr. Novak
doesn't need to apologize to anyone for his sincerity. Mr. Carville is the professional political wrestler, but CNN has asked only Mr. Novak to take
a vacation.

If you don't know, or killed the brain cells this weekend storing that sweet little memory of Robert Novak taking his mic off, storming off the set and saying "well, I think that's bullshit" on live TV, here's the video.

Now I'm all about punching Carville in the nose (He's messed up how many Democratic elections now?), but Carville isn't the one who said the naughty word on TV. And Carville isn't the one that stormed off the set.

If Novak can't take the heat, then he needs to mosey on out of the kitchen. Those news talk shows that Jon Stewart so eloquently says are "hurting America," can get pretty hot and intense. And by hot and intense, I don't mean in a marathon, mulitple orgasmic session in the dressing room at Urban Outfitters kinda way. I mean the way rabid Bill O'Reilly treats his guests. Like when O'Reilly went on a tirade against Jeremy Glick, a soft spoken young man who lost his dad on 9/11.

If I had a dime for every guest Bill O'Reilly treated worse than Carville treated Novak, I could totally afford that Hunter Passage 456 Sailboat and a cabana boy to go with it. But it's good to see the Wall Street Journal defending profanity on primetime CNN. That's family values in action!

    I cant believe the WSJ printed that. Ok, I can believe it, but I am still shocked.

    I saw that video, and like Jon Stewart said, I felt like it was a birthday present to watch Novak look like an ass. I totally agree that Carville deserves a solid smack upside the head, but what he said on CNN was both true and funny, and watching Novak act like a small child whose friends stole all the toys in the sandbox was priceless
