What's Eaten Jimmy Carter?

I'm beginning to wonder if Jimmy Carter converted secretly to Islam or something. Not recently -- back when or even before he was president. There could have been more behind our limp response to the Iran hostage "crisis" than Vietnam War weariness, reluctance to disturb the Soviets, and fear of irritating the oil-rich Muslim world. Sure, those were important factors, but then-President Jimmah's response was more supine than circumstances called for. And then there are his subsequent antics.


Update: maybe he's just horrible. (Via.)

Update: no one told me I wrote "subsequence" when I meant to write "subsequent." Guys, you're supposed to keep track of these things!

Carter wasn't a real President, he was just a placeholder while the rest of us got over our Watergate snit. I had a bad feeling about him before he was elected, largely because I couldn't stomach a candidate who, in the post Watergate landscape, based his whole platform on "trust me."

But until recently I figured him for a well meaning fool. The past few years I've had to conclude that he's a knave.

Carter is a politically vain useful idiot.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
