Jimmy Carter Can't Even Lie Successfully

What's the line from Social Distortion's "Ball and Chain"?

"I'm born to lose and destined to fail"

So is the story of Jimmy Carter. Now, Carter was the first president I was old enough to remember and recognize - and my first impression was that life sucked under Carter. Sure improved dramatically and quickly under Reagan, though...

Anyhow, back to what a loser Jimmy Carter is.

I came across the above gem through Drudge today. The former Carter Center Executive Director, Kenneth Stein, has dropped the former Pres like a hot boiled peanut. Citing the following:

"Stein wrote that the book, "Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid," was replete with factual errors, material copied from other sources and "simply invented segments," according to an excerpt of the letter published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution."

And Carter responded, with flimflam including but not limited to: (and ah declare) that Stein had not been actively involved with the center for more than 12 years and was not involved with the new book. Even though Stein is referred to in this story as a longtime aide and thinktank member.

Those of us in normal jobs, with real accountability, and presented with the same situation would probably make this note to self: This might leave a mark.

In other words, get out before it sticks.
