One Thing Jimmy Carter Got Right

Let's face it, when the old son-of-a-gun is right, he's right. Back in 1980, Carter's speech at the Democratic convention contained this undeniable truth: the former commander of the Atropos and the Hotspur would, indeed, have been a good president.

If I was at that convention I would be cheering too.

So, what you're saying, is that he always had his head in another world?

I think the funniest part of the clip is the crowd's thunderous applause... even though Carter gives the wrong name.

Goes to show: left or right, north and south, coast to coast, the power of ritual.

Bravo, Charles Henry, and hello again to you, truepeers and Dag!

Back on the Internet after long hiatus, and loving your new format :)

On topic: Ah, good ol' Jimmuh. There's a fitting tribute to him here --

Hi Eowyn,

Good to see you again!

Well, that guy's got one cheek free. Does he go with Obama or wait for someone better?

My good friends,

I do believe ~we~ have crossed the Rubicon.

Once upon a time, I would have wanted credit ... but, well, it's beyond that now.

Fasten our seatbelts.
