Skip to comments.Jimmy Carter: Can't Stop the Typing (Hilarious Takedown)
Posted on 10/11/2010 9:36:32 AM PDT by mojito
In November 1980, the American people made a disastrous decision whose reverberations are still being felt today. Rather than biting the bullet and re-electing the glum, uncharismatic, hopeless Jimmy Carter to the White Housethereby ensuring that he would return to Plains, Ga., at the conclusion of his second term and keep his blabberpuss shutthey turfed him out into the street.
That made him mad. Really mad. By giving one of America's dopiest presidents the bum's rush, the American people ensured that Mr. Carter would spend the rest of his life trying to even the score, trying to persuade them that they had made a huge mistake when they cast their lot with Ronald Reagan, trying to convince them that they were a bunch of jerks.
The particular form of retribution Carter chose was as sinister and cruel as any known to man. He took his pen in hand and began to write books. Long books. Boring books. Dour books. Yes, long, boring, dour, numerous books.

Sort of like his single term in office, in other words?
I couldn’t believe this hadn’t been posted yet so I did only to get beat by a couple minutes. Great LOL piece!
During Carter’s giddy campaign, my mother-in-law (from Ga) did feel compelled to purchase one of those ubiquitous gold peanuts on a chain.
Oh the irony - it’s appreciated in value more than the Carter Presidency;)
Jimmuhs books hit the remainder shelves as soon as they are released. He is king of the remainder shelves.He should have had more kids who could have created a market for the sanctimonious narcissistic trash he writes.
But there are some people who take an interest in the Edsel.
I don’t know about anyone else but I’ll gladly take the books over four more years of Carter. That would have been lethal.
I don’t have to buy the books. Four more years? No choice there.
You and me both!! I've only read 5 paragraphs of this and had to stop for LMAO. Did Carter really write that much? Lord, talk about your encre-pisseurs. I'm headed for amazon because I just don't believe it.
Well, Jimmuh could take reponsibility for that one time when....
In November 1978, President Carter appointed George Ball head of a special White House Iran task force under Brzezinski. Ball recommends the US should drop support for the Shah of Iran and support the radical Islamist opposition of Ayatollah Khomeini. This idea is based on ideas from British Islamic expert Dr. Bernard Lewis, who advocates the balkanization of the entire Muslim Near East along tribal and religious lines. The chaos would spread in what he also calls an arc of crisis and ultimately destabilize the Muslim regions of the Soviet Union.
There was a brandy-new bookstore up our way that always had highly visible displays for the Carter and similar lib books. Went out of business after a couple of years.
I LIVED through Carter. At this point, i think I would take 4 more years of Jimmah over 4 more of Bammy. The
Peanut Man is smiling again, he’s not the worst anymore!
I suppose he needs something impressive for the Jimmy Carter Library that no one seems to care about. Perhaps “The Little Baby Snoogle-Fleejer” will do the trick.
I can top that, my idiot brother named one of his sons Carter after jimmy.
Any books about rabbits?
Mr. Foreman invented a product used by millions of happy consumers all over the planet. All Carter can claim is a legacy of misery, failure, and death.
You must admit that there is a certain ghoulish fascination in watching an ex-President make an abject fool of himself while he believes he is being taken seriously.
If he'd only stuck to hammering nails for Habitat for Humanity . . .
Stupid on a Sandwich;)
Not sure that we, as a society, have overcome being seduced by a toothy grin, a ‘nuclear submarine officer’ rep and a sweater.
I do believe the rabbit attack was his waterloo. Rabbits: quiet but deadly;)
George Foreman despised? Sorry, I don’t recall that era.
I do recall Foreman walking around the boxing ring after winning the 1968 Olympic heavyweight gold metal with an American flag in his glove.
Some black athletes were giving the Black Panther fist at the games.
Other than that, the article rightly skewers Carter.
Wow! Thanks for that link!!!
You should read P.J. O’Rourke’s hilarious review of “Everything to Gain” by Jimmy Carter. You can find it here on FR. Title is “The Very Deep Thoughts of Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter.” Sorry I don’t know how to post a link...
Sorry, I dont recall that era.
Nor do I. However, after the loss to Ali, his career spiraled downward, and he became kind of surly, one of the low points coming on a night when he fought three other guys in succession in a kind of pathetic circus atmosphere. When he lost to Jimmy Young of Philly, in a 15 round decision, he just kind of gave it up.
But despised? No. Even less so, now.
But they left out his hatred of Israel and other places where you might find Joooos, and his love of terrorists, as long as they will help get rid of the aforementioned meddlesome people.
He was the surly, big, mean and angry foil to Ali's safe, funny and friendly style. Ali was about speed and art, Foreman was about hammering destruction.
It was kinda shocking to watch Foreman morph into the sweet lovable teddybear guy.
Jimmy Carter has spent his post-Presidential life seeking the public respect he thinks was stolen from him in his loss of the Presidency to Reagan.
His arrogant, egotistical manner in which he has gone about it has shown less respect to the Office of the President, than any modern former President ever has; which simply continues to demonstrate why he gets all the lack of respect he deserves.
Yeah, he reminds me of the Budweiser lizards whenever he starts one of his whoppers,
