Clintonite calls Bill Richardson "Judas"

WOW! Just when you thought the kitchen couldn't get any hotter, Ragin' Cajun James Carville throws some tabasco sauce in the mix, calling Bill Richardson a Judas (!!!) for endorsing Obama over Hills:

"An act of betrayal," said James Carville, an adviser to Mrs. Clinton and a friend of Mr. Clinton.

"Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic," Mr. Carville said, referring to Holy Week.

Damn, talk about over the top. I mean, obviously the Clintons are pissed that Richardson didn't go with La Famiglia, but this is WAY over the line. And I am saying this as someone who doesn't love Richardson (mostly because of how he threw Wen Ho Lee under the bus as Sec. of Energy.)

I mean, the whole Mark Penn saying that Richardson was significant before he was insignificant is par for the course. But Judas?!? Does that mean they think Hillary is Jesus?!?!?

Not okay. They just insulted the top ranking Latino in the US, is she trying to kill her base?!? I mean she has a large part of the Latino vote, is she really trying to throw them over?

If this is an example of how she is running her campaign (and it is), I don't see why more superdelegates aren't running in the opposite direction. This is a prime example of why Democratic activists are afraid of endorsing because they are incredibly sore losers who will try to handicap your knees.

This is just beyond the pale, and incredibly bad taste. This is why people hate the Clintons. Carville needs to be fired for this.
