Red Eye: Keeping it civil

Pat Caddell, former Carter pollster:

“[T]he point is – you know, this thing started – I have to say, when I look at [Paul] Krugman and Jonathan Alter, with his advice and the president, ‘Don’t let this go to waste – let’s make it like Oklahoma City,’ and Krugman who is just a flat-out asshole, I’m sorry – these people what they did…”

Caddell indicated their initial response should have been different.

“People are dead and the first thing you have to do is go to politics, I mean no wonder the country hates the media and hates the politicians,” he said.

Later in the show during the “Halftime Report” segment, “Red Eye” ombudsman Andy Levy had this exchange with Caddell:

LEVY: Pat, you called Krugman a real “a-hole.” New tone please, new tone? We’re operating under a new tone.

CADDELL: I’m sorry, but the guy is outrageous. He’s the most disingenuous human being I know. And not only that, he’s not even a real economist.

LEVY: I agree with you, but what you need to say is that, “Krugman is an opening at the opposite end of his digestive tract from his mouth, the function of which is to control the expulsion of feces.

This Arizona incident is really revealing who the a-holes are.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: I will catch the wise in their own craftiness.
