NOVAK'S MELTDOWN....Bob Novak got upset today on CNN when James Carville interrupted him, muttered "I think that's bullshit" in Carville's general direction, and then stalked off the set. There's video and reaction at Crooks and Liars. I'll never hear the end of it if I don't post about this, so consider this an open thread to discuss Novak's meltdown.

It beats me what happened. It seemed like just the usual banter between Novak and Carville, who have done this kind of thing about a thousand times before, so I don't know what set Novak off although I understand that he's been under a lot of pressure lately over some controversy or other. Planegate? Something like that, anyway.

In any case, fishbowlDC reports that CNN says, "We've asked Mr. Novak to take some time off." The world is a brighter place already.
