Here is someone who had the same reaction I did to some recent comments by Jimmy Carter. (He just phrased them better than I can!)
When he called George W. Bush the worst president in American history, Mr. Carter managed to ignite a 24-hour brush fire out there in medialand. That’s understandable. There’s something irresistibly comic about Jimmy Carter’s calling another president, any president, the worst in history. It’s like Danny DeVito calling somebody else short. – Paul Greenberg
Carter is rapidly becoming even more of a joke than his presidency was! The only problem is that he (and the sycophants in the media) takes it all sooooooo seriously.
