Sounds Like Carville Just Called Ben Carson 'Chauncey Gardiner'

<p>Can you imagine if a Republican called a prominent Dem candidate "Chauncey Gardiner," the simple soul from the Peter Sellers film Being There? The cries of racism might well cost such a hapless Republican his job. </p><p>But don't expect James Carville to pay any price. On today's With All Due Respect, Carville rather clearly seemed to refer to Ben Carson in that way. Carville said that a frustrated Bush "can't believe that Chauncey Gardiner [laughs] and Trump and all these people are running ahead of him." Given that Carson and Trump are the two front-runners, and that Carson, while brilliant, is soft-spoken, there would seem little doubt that Carville meant his Chauncey crack for Carson.<br /></p>
