Fisking Jimmy Carter

Gordon tees off on Jimmy Carter, who is now positioning himself as a historian of the American Revolution to try to draw some parallel between Moqutada al-Sadr and Francis "Swampfox" Marion or something. Gordo takes issue with Carter characterizing the Revolution as the bloodiest war in American history by citing--obviously---the Civil War. However, I'd have to check (and my stuff on this is at home) but the bloodiest war in American history (measured on the impact on the total population) was King Philip's War (here are two different links to sites discussing this war between Massachusetts Bay colonists and the Wamponag which turned into a devastating three-sided civil war in New England in 1675-1676.

Of course, the analogy doesn't work for Carter and the left (other than in a generic Amerika is evillllll sort of way) because there's the tricky problem of the massacres of innocents by religious zealots...

UPDATE: I'm reading this story as reported by Steve Green and I realize I missed the true beauty of Carter's quote: he's arguing that the American Revolution was not justified!

I have no doubt that Jimmy Carter is campaigning for the Secretaryship of the United Nations and will do anything, and say anything, to destroy the United States in the process.

There is only one word for Jimmy Carter: vile.

Yes, you're right about that one word for Jimmy Carter. And it works well anagrammed too.

If he wants to be SecGen when Kofi takes his ill-gotten gains and rides into the sunset, he'll have to beat out Bubba Clinton. Saw a UPI story yesterday about Bill wanting the job in '06. I knew that the UN leadership got lots of graft, but I didn't know there was pussy involved, too!
