Last night, the director of the Lyndon […]

Let’s just get it out there: We just love Jimmy Carter, and we’d watch him on the Morning Farm Report. Put him across a table from Stephen Colbert, and we are there — or our DVR is. He’s having fun, and has obviously done his homework: he’s perfectly ready for the back-and forth with Colbert. […]

In this New Media hellscape, the news comes at you fast and furious.

Yes, “occasionally,” […]

Hey, what’s up with former President Jimmy Carter today? Pretty much the usual — talking about punching out foreign leaders and crediting Harry S Truman for curing him of racism. On the foreign-leader-smackdown front, Carter told the Johnannesburg Sunday Times that he was so angry with former South African president Thabo Mbeki’s denial of the […]

Poor old really old John McCain. Lately, he has been flinging himself at all possible Syria options so that he can later decide what to do based on a complicated metric of whining and hostility over not winning in 2008. Johnny Boy has made the mistake of looking like he might semi-sorta like to bomb […]

We have rather mixed feelings about this Daily Caller story here. On the one hand, it’s actually doing some interesting journamalism stuff, using a Freedom of Information Act request to examine how former presidents spend some of the money that goes to former Presidents of the United States — a total of $3.7 million in […]

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 […]

We’ve been waiting to see how the GOP would eventually tackle this particular, inevitable political messaging problem: At some point, they would decide to ditch “Obama is Jimmy Carter II” — Jimmy Carter, of course, having been the original History’s Greatest Monster — in favor of Obama is worse than Carter. But they can’t explicitly […]

The Virginia state legislature is preparing to switch from the U.S. dollar to some sort of nu-currency—salted hams, probably. [WND] Welfare queen Jimmy Carter is living large off of YOUR tax money! Be angry! [Washington Times] Marriage-rape advocate and anti-feminist Phyllis Schlafly says Americans must rise up against the activist judges who would allow gays […]

Michele Bachmann opened up to a gathering of Michigan Republicans on Tuesday about her shameful, Jimmy Carter-loving past. “I was a reasonable, fair-minded Democrat. And another secret you need to know: My husband and I met in college. We worked on Jimmy Carter’s presidential campaign. It’s true, it’s true. This is like a 12-step meeting […]

Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo is going to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize Friday, because “peace” apparently is now a synonym for “toiling in vain for democracy.” China does not like this very much, as Liu is sitting in one of their prisons, so they decided to make their very own peace prize.
