Jimmy Carter - That Subtlety Of Dementia

"No thanks, I can change my Depends myself."

It's about time the guys in the white coats grabbed this drooling, empty peanut shell of a man and dragged his quivering ass off to a Georgia nursing home.

From Mediate:
In a preview of Wednesday’s Piers Morgan Tonight, former President Jimmy Carter surprised host Piers Morgan with his somewhat blunt (by mainstream media standards) assessment of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Speaking of Gingrich’s standing ovation moment at Monday night’s debate, President Carter told Morgan “I think (Gingrich) has that subtlety of racism that I know quite well, that Gingrich knows quite well, that appeals to some people in Georgia.”

“Really?” Morgan exclaimed as Carter spoke, later adding, “That’s a pretty serious charge to level at Newt Gingrich, that he’s being racist.”

“I’m not saying he’s racist, but he knows the subtle words to use to appeal to a racist group,” Carter responded.

I USED to have some respect for the man, despite his dismal performance as president. However, I've noticed that he backstabs friend and foe alike, which means that his only REAL concern is himself.

Jimmy Carter lost in a landslide as an incumbent for more reason than one. This is only one of them...

He would have been wise to take General MacArthur's advice and simply fade away. Instead, he's become that slightly senile Great Great Uncle at the holiday table. Ya' know him, the one who, whenever he opens his mouth, everyone in the room cringes at the prospect of what's about to spill forth from ye olde piehole.

Carter, you irrelevant boob, get back to sucking on your Depends.

WoFat said...

The worst president in history. Until the current boob.

I love it!

I find everything Carter has ever done absolutely offensive. Even his so-called charity work is repulsive.

Well, old jimmah would know

Gorges - he is a model liberal democrat.

Fredd - I only wish he really got lost in a landslide... in Boliva perhaps. They could bury him next to Che.

Andy - My great aunt's husband (on my mom's side) was like that. Uncle Joe ... in his dotage he tried to get my sister to marry him.

Odie - on top of everything else I bet he smells bad too.

sig94 said...

WoFat - and that's saying a lot! Nothing like going for the bottom of the barrel and digging right through it.

Silverfiddle - whenever he opens his Alzheimer-enabled piehole it's time to slam the door, duct tape his arms to the wheel chair and roll him away from the windows.

fececious - that's a great idea for a new liberal democrat cologne - "Repulsive."

sig94 said...

Kid - it's hard to drop old habits.

The best thing about Jimmy Carter was Billy Beer. I wish he would just shut up and go away AND I wish he would stop telling people he is a Christian. I think he is jealous that Obama has claimed the only thing that was memorable about his presidency; he is no longer the worst president in history.

Ralph - We're #2! We're #2! And with his Depends, Carter can do #2 anytime he wahts.
