If We Could Quarantine Stupid, New Jersey Wouldn’t Have A Governor

This is the sort of responsiveness and meddling that we so seldom see in our big impersonal government anymore.

All y’all with your Bubba hard-ons can leave right now until the next post comes on. Official Wonkette Editorial Policy proclaims Jimmy Carter the bitchinest, raddest, most fuckin’ greatest of all living ex-presidents and probably the dead ones too. Former President Jimmy Carter said that he favored legalizing marijuana during a panel discussion broadcast on CNN Tuesday. “I’m in favor of it. I think it’s OK,” Carter said at the forum, which was taped Friday. “I don’t think it’s going to happen in Georgia yet, but I think we can watch and see what happens in the state of Washington, for instance around Seattle, and let the American government and let the American people see does it cause a serious problem or not.” Read more on Jimmy Carter Continues To Be Most Awesome Living Ex-President…
