Longtime Democrat strategist James Carville has joined his fellow party members who are seeking to oust renegade Senator Kyrsten Sinema who has infuriated leftists for her refusal to go along with the bid to eliminate the filibuster, a move that would inflict severe and lasting damage on the political process while helping to cement a permanent one-party Democratic majority into place.

Sinema who despite intense pressure from President Joe Biden and harassment by activists has been a major wrench in the gears for power-drunk Democrats, their “Build Back Better’ agenda and sham “voting rights” legislation that would effectively strip states of the ability to conduct their own elections, is being targeted for political termination with many including socialist geezer Bernie Sanders vowing to back a primary challenger.

Carville is also now on record as supporting a primary challenge against the Arizona moderate, throwing his backing behind Democrat Rep. Ruben Gallego who is drawing buzz as a potential threat to displace Sinema who was recently censured by her state’s Democratic party and who is up for reelection in 2024.

The man rose to national fame for coining the bumper sticker slogan “It’s the economy stupid” which propelled upstart Bill Clinton’s toppling of then-President George HW Bush in the 1992 election made his commitment to the volatile congressman in an interview with the leftist website Vox.

The “Ragin’ Cajun” first addressed Democrat Senator Joe Manchin who like Sinema has drawn the wrath of leftists over his opposition to Biden’s transformational BBB legislative package which serves as a Trojan horse for the controversial “Green New Deal” and has also stubbornly resisted knuckling under to the bullies in his party.

“Understand that Joe Manchin is a Roman Catholic Democrat in a state in which not a single county has voted Democrat [for president] since 2008. I repeat: not a single county has voted Democrat since 2008,” Carville said in an admission that it would be futile to primary the West Virginia lawmaker.

He added, “Politics is about choices, and he’s up for reelection in 2024. If Manchin runs for reelection, I’ll do everything I can to help him because it’s either going to be Joe Manchin or Marsha Blackburn. It ain’t Joe Manchin or Ed Markey. You got to understand that. It’s really that damn simple.”

“Now the situation with Sinema in Arizona is an entirely different situation,” Carville said, as he responded to a question on what kind of “game” that she was playing.

While struggling to put his finger on what is motivating Sinema, Carville offered his services to Rep. Gallego, “I can’t explain it, and no one else can. The only explanation people have given is that she wants to be the next John McCain. But she’s not going to win a primary against Rep. Ruben Gallego, I’ll tell you that damn much. And I will personally volunteer to help him fundraise because I think we can keep that seat if he runs.”

He also responded to a question from interviewer Sean Illing on whether Sinema has presidential aspirations, “I’ve never met her, I have no idea what the hell she’s thinking. I’ve talked to people who know her and the only theory they have that makes any sense is that she views herself as some kind McCain-esque maverick. But look, I’m out of gas on this one. I really am,” referring to the deceased Republican warmonger who took his burning hatred of former President Donald J. Trump to the grave and who like Liz Cheney and George W. Bush, has received high praise from Dems.

Carville again expressed his frustration with the party’s progressives who he described as being “the smallest part of the party. But the problem is they make 70 percent of the noise,” and that “People believe this is what the party represents. “They want to defund the police.” “They want open borders.” “They want to empty the jails.” It’s defining the party.”

In a previous interview with Vox, Carville decried what he described as a “woke” problem.

Carville raged, “You ever get the sense that people in faculty lounges in fancy colleges use a different language than ordinary people? They come up with a word like ‘Latinx’ that no one else uses,” he said. “Or they use a phrase like ‘communities of color.’ I don’t know anyone who speaks like that. I don’t know anyone who lives in a ‘community of color.’ I know lots of white and black and brown people and they all live in … neighborhoods.”

“There’s nothing inherently wrong with these phrases. But this is not how people talk. This is not how voters talk. And doing it anyway is a signal that you’re talking one language and the people you want to vote for you are speaking another language. This stuff is harmless in one sense, but in another sense it’s not,” he said.

While Carville and others may be talking lots of smack about getting rid of Sinema, it may not really make that much of a difference if Americans who are increasingly blaming Biden’s failed policies for skyrocketing prices, empty shelves and the bad direction that the nation is headed in throw the bums out and deliver a large enough Senate majority to Republicans that her vote will no longer matter.
