Jimmy Carter Inc.
Washington Post ^ | February 26, 2006 | Joel Achenbach

Posted on 02/25/2006 10:22:14 AM PST by george76

The other night Jimmy Carter popped up on the Larry King show, live via satellite, standing in a ski lodge and wearing a fur-lined outdoorsman jacket as though he'd just come in from felling a spruce.

He was publicizing an upcoming auction in which he would sell the furniture he'd been making.

Also his wine. This may have come to many viewers as a surprise: There is Jimmy Carter Wine.

The former president didn't say how he made it, but you know what it's probably called: peanut noir.

Also he plans to sell his paintings. "My paintings," he told King, "have gotten to be pretty popular."

In fact, he said, one of his paintings had been used as the cover for his recent novel.

George Will recently called Carter "an even worse ex-president than he was a president," a snippety remark that probably reflects Will's jealousy that Carter has more hobbies.

Liberal Democrats, demonstrating characteristic loyalty, tried to oust Carter in favor of Teddy Kennedy.

Carter survived, but fell in the fall election to a sunny, twinkly-eyed former movie star.

Carter hadn't just lost the presidency; in effect he'd been fired.

Answering a call, here comes the most indefatigable man in America: Jimmy Carter, ex-president-for-life.

Peanut furniture? Wine? Paintings?

Why the guy is becoming a regular Paul Newman.

Just when you thought Paul's dressing a bit pricey, Jimmy Dean sausage sucked and Orville Redenbacher thought he had gold coated popcorn, along comes peanut head like he's having a perpetual garage sale.

Doesn't this creep lust in his heart anymore? And are the Democrats really that stupid to buy that crap?


Oh ... never mind.

Jimmy Carter Wine?

Isn't this the president who ran a dry Baptist Whitehouse?

Sounds like a serious secret drinker to me.

I've wondered for sometime if Jimmah's breathtaking lack of shame and embarrassment is due to stupidity or the absence of a conscience.

I saw an unopened can of that stuff in an antique store a couple of years ago. I just couldn't bring myself to pay for anything that was associated with the Carter legacy.

Carter probably hired someone to make the furniture, the wine and the paintings. It wouldn't surprise me. He is such a damn phony!

Billy vs. Jimmy. Billy brewed beer. Jimmy verments wine. Billy drove a pickup truck. Jimmy drove a Volvo. Billy would piss against the side of his pickup truck when necessary. Jimmy always sits down when urinating. Billy knew how to handle the Iranian terrorists. Jimmy wasn't smart enough to listen to him. Billy engaged his brain before speaking. Jimmy never engages his brain choosing instead to emote. (Okay, maybe he doesn't have a normally functioning brain. After all, his daughter Amy seems to emote rather than think as does Roslyn or whatever her name was. Maybe that's why Jimmy is out of the country so much.) Billy stayed at home, drank beer, played poker, and had friends. Jimmy is always popping up as if he's trying out for Carmen Sandiego's job, sips wine, plays make believe, and has not friends. (No, Jimmy, all those turban heads don't hate all Americans just because they all hate you. Did it ever occur to you, Jimmy, that with the exception of the goofy people at the top of the DNC, how few Americans like you?)

It has been said by many that his brother Billie was an embarrassment to him. It seems that Jimmah has turned out to be much more an embarrassment to our whole nation.

Even Richard Nixon was a better ex-president then Jimmah Carter. A thousand times better. After Reagan kicked Carter's butt, Jimmah began planning his vendetta against the American people. Carter's had a chip on a shoulder since 1981. Make that a 2X4.

I`ve got to give the author of this ludicrous tripe a little credit.

There are very few people alive today that could write such fawning article over the likes of Carter without laughing so hard as to not be able to type.

Even better is that Gore and Kerry are following closely in his footsteps,to the point that even few dems want to talk about them.

1. Miz Laura is giving Jimmuh the Death Ray stare.

2. I never noticed before what elegant legs she has.

3. Jimmuh's face looks like it's melting. Maybe she DOES have that death ray stare.

I am reading that book, right now. I was only a young child when he was president. But after his embarrassing display at the Coretta Scott King funeral I picked up the book. His administration was appalling. Every Middle East problem we have came from him. I was surprised at how little I really knew about him. I thought Clinton was horribe(and he is) however, Carter was and is evil, incompetent and so many other things.

Sneak peak at Carter's painting. In addition to book covers, makes a wonderful bird-cage liner.

Some may not realize that in 1981, Jimmy Carter epitomized failure, having presided over a grim four years in American history.

And those people write ridiculous articles like these trying to rehabilitate the jerk. History (and Carter) speak for themselves.

President Bush looks annoyed and bemused, as in:
1. Who has the damned football. It's time to nuke Plains.
2. An empty peanut shell, not worth the effort...Never mind!

Mrs. Bush, on the other had, has that school teacher look many of us remember. When my teachers got that look, I knew I had crossed the line & was in deep shiite: at school and at home.

It is incredible that the DUmmies actually might believe their own stories.

I guess that they repeat the lies enough times, they then believe it.

Thanks for posting the cover George. IMO McGovern and his anti-war fellow travelers moved the democrat party in the direction that set the course for the next 34 years. Carter and Clinton were just dupes on the road to socialist nervana.

I vividly recall seeing billboards along I-75 in south Georgia declaring "The farmers of Georgia apologize to the nation for Jimmy Carter."

During the Carter years, at Carter's urging, Idaho Senator Frank Church held hearings on the operation of the CIA and found that -- HORRORS -- taxpayer money was being paid to foreign snitches who had CRIMINAL RECORDS for vital human, on-the-ground intel on the activities of those who were planning the destruction of this country. Church commented at one session that "Gentlemen do not read other gentlemens’ mail." Glad that a**hole didn't serve during the run-up to WWII. (Although he may have handled the "delayed" communication to Pearl Harbor that the Japanese were on the way!)

The sorts of people who consort with -- and, more importantly, get cozy with -- the leaders of terrorist organizations are not normally choir boys. Church moved the legislature to PROHIBIT any US funds going to these potential informants. Since it can take upwards of 20 years for these guys to move close enough to the top to be seriously valuable, we had virtually NO humintel on bin Laden's plans for 9-11! While there are still Church-like imbeciles at the levers of power here, I THINK the law has been changed. While the NSA wiretaps and eavesdrops on US citizens HERE, isn't it comforting to know that in just 15 or 20 years we may be able to thwart THERE a plan hatched THERE for some future 9-11 with information actually gathered THERE.

Despite what my Emory indoctrinated niece (who worked at the Carter Center for Meddlesome Interference in United States Foreign Policy) thinks, Carter was -- and IS -- a dangerous buffoon.
