Carville calls Palin and Santorum 'reptiles'

James Carville upped the rhetoric against Republicans today, calling Sarah Palin and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) "reptiles."

In a fundraising letter for the DCCC, Carville blasts Palin and Santorum for campaigning for the Republican candidate in the special election to replace late Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa.).

"First there was Sarah Palin. Now we can add another Republican reptile from the past trying to help the GOP win House races this year - former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum," Carville said.

The Democratic strategist also had some harsh words for Tea Partiers, whom he called "fire-breathing tea party nut jobs."

"Santorum and his fellow nut jobs on the right-wing lunatic fringe know that another Republican win in a special election like this will send the media into a tizzy about how it's all over for President Obama's agenda and how the GOP has all the momentum this year," he wrote.
