More About We're Still Right, They're Still Wrong by James Carville; Ryan Jacobs
 
 
 
Overview
Every politico and pundit has tried to explain the 2016 presidential race, but James Carville the multiple best-selling Ragin Cajun and grand strategist of Bill Clinton s rise to the White House has largely stayed silent. Until now.
He straddled the punch bowl, dropped his pants, and whipped out his member, which, he assured everyone, was very large. Then Donald Trump pissed right into the punch of the Republican Party.

So begins We re Still Right, They re Still Wrong with that image of Donald Trump defiling the celebration that should ve been the GOP Establishment s easy march to the White House.
In We re Still Right, They re Still Wrong, Carville updates his #1 New York Times bestseller from 1996, the campaign tract that Bill Clinton once credited for his re-election. Carville skewers the GOP s dumpster fire of a record over the past twenty years, and argues that Trump is the living manifestation of a failed party. From income inequality to race relations, Carville believes that Democratic Party is not only the dominant party of the past, but of America s future, too and he makes the case in his uncensored and earthy style.
Among other things, We re Still Right, They re Still Wrong features a hot take on the Clinton e-mail scandal, a story about Carville s momma schooling a pair of crawfish mongers, a lecture on political panics called The Anatomy of Bullshit, and a recipe for how to grill your (non-existent) Trump Steak.
And wit and sharp tongue aside, Carville turns it all into the most cogent and thoughtful analysis of the 2016 and how the Democrats can and must be victorious."

In this follow-up to We're Right, They're Wrong, a 1996 dissection of Republican policy, Carville makes a breezy, detailed, and well-supported case for the progressive positions he holds dear. Starting with the dedication to "Bill and Hillary Clinton," you know where Carville stands, and he is unapologetic in his bias. Biting and profane, he uses his folksy Cajun style to offer a point-by-point refutation of Republican shibboleths. He cites a credentialed expert to prove climate change is real and caused by humans. With statistics and graphs, he debunks supply-side economics, which he deems snake-oil or worse, and defends welfare. He praises taxing the wealthy to offset income inequality. Carville hammers away at what he considers myths, including deregulation and market solutions as cure-alls and the Affordable Care Act and environmental laws as economically destructive. Carville reserves his greatest vitriol for Donald Trump, calling him "a tangerine with the political leanings of Generalissimo Francisco Franco." Carville's trademark smart-aleck tone is pervasive, and the humor doesn't always work, particularly in the recipes and prescriptions sprinkled throughout. Even so, for liberally inclined readers looking to refute their conservative friends' arguments, these are the concise, thoughtful talking points they'll need. (Aug.)
