It's the mooncalf again!

Ordinarily I'd say something unkind about Jimmy Carter's latest eructation, but it's kind of like complaining about the cowflops after stabling the heard in the hall. What else could one reasonably expect?

It does, however, remind me of something I read recently that claimed that ole Jimmy sabotaged the Shah of Iran because he didn't get some lucrative business deals for his Georgia cronies. Since it's well known that he did sabotage the Shah's government, it would be comfortable to think he was merely a money grubbing crook, but I think that is just trying to put a rational gloss on his irrationality. We're damn lucky that the mooncalf didn't do worse than he did while he was in office.
