Crazy Unkie Jimmy mouths off again

Ah yes, crazy Unkie Jimmie Carter, the gift that keeps on giving...

They don't hardly make `em like Jimmy Carter anymore.

Ex-President Carter was shilling for a series of audiobooks he's pitching, `Sunday Mornings in Plains," and decided that the proximity of an AP reporter was just too good to he started ranting about President Bush, whom he characterized as `the worst ever.'

This follows his rant last Saturday, when, in honor of Tony Blair's farewell visit to the US, Carter described Blair as "Abominable. Loyal. Blind. Apparently subservient."

"And I think the almost undeviating support by Great Britain for the ill-advised policies of President Bush in Iraq have been a major tragedy for the world," Carter told the BBC.

Now, I'm no great fan of either of the two world leaders he mentioned, but I can't let Unkie Jimmy be so magnanimous as all that.

When it comes to `the worst ever', the Carter Administration is in a fetid class all its own. Some of us still remember the condition President Carter left the country in when his sorry behind was booted out of Washington after one term.

And `subservient'? I think that particular adjective would apply more properly to an anti-Semitic, senile old fool who was willing to grab his ankles, write a blatantly false piece of `anti-Zionist' propaganda at the behest of his Arab paymasters and gad around the country as a paid shill and Jew hater for sale.

Now. aside from being willing to trash his own country to a bunch of foreigners - and I'm sure they just lapped it up at the Beeb - there is something to be said for having the basic decency, once you're out of office, to avoid criticizing your successors. Previous presidents on both sides of the aisles understood this quite well, and what's more, maintained a gentleman's agreement about it.

But President Carter continues to run off at the mouth in public, to the point where it's embarrassing. Having been a colossal failure in office himself, he seeks to divert us from that history by trashing the present.

I'm sure it works in some quarters, but it's despicable.

Crazy Unkie Jimmy continues to set new lows for public behavior by political figures.

It's a free country and he's entitled, so we can probably expect this yahoo to come out of the attic and soil himself in public from time to time.
