Being a professional dick

Crooks and Liars looks at Alex Castellanos latest dickish behavior, in particular the fact that Nobel prizes are a joke as people like Krugman and Gore have dared not to mouth Republican talking points. How whiny.


Digby reminds us what type of man Catellanos is :

You remember Castellanos. He's the guy who made Jesse Helms' infamous "Hands" ad. He is, in fact Karl Rove's biggest rival for most negative campaigner in the GOP, which is quite a feat.

This person was on CNN throughout the presidential campaign, which makes some sense since he was in the capacity of "Republican campaign consultant." But he has no business being on television commenting on anything but dirty campaign tactics, which is where his expertise lies. He is a professional liar who admits to doing anything necessary to back his team and who even village "polite society" is squeamish about cable.

Why is CNN still giving this jerk a platform from which to do this kind of dirty work for the GOP? He should be on Fox where he belongs, alongside the other creepy political sociopaths.
I agree completely. As Glenn Beck turns creepier every day on FOX I think Alex needs to join him in a segment where they both can cry over the economy to the song "The Tears of a Clown."
