What a piece of crap

Wow.  Just.... Wow.  Words fail me.  I knew Carter was a piece of crap, but it took a ten year old article to make me understand how bad he really is.  And he's only added to his litany of shame since then, the latest addition being his interview the other day where he basically said that he's better than any other ex-president because he's so awesome and has such moral virtue.

Some people are truly idiots...

.... And unfortunately, a disproportionate  number seem to live in Illinois.  Reminds me of the editorial I once read when I was an undergrad at Michigan State University.  The school nickname there is, of course, The Spartans.  And some idiot perfesser wrote a bit about how that should be changed, since the Spartans were evil, reactionary, and blah blah blah.  Rather, as intellectuals, the University Community should strive to be more like the Athenians, with their love of art, culture, etc.

And their love of imperialism, slaughter, etc.  But we won't talk about that, I guess.

As someone (Orwell, I believe) said, some ideas are so foolish only an intellectual can believe them.
