Jimmy Carter's Tackiness.

The Washington Post notes the bizarre story of Jimmy Carter's alleged snub by President Bush, "Carter's Absence From Group Reignites Tensions With Bush" (via Outside The Beltway):

Both sides agree that the White House invited Carter and that he ultimately chose not to go....

Yet Jimmy Carter's supporters are trying to make something out of nothing:

"I think it's an outrage," said Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carter's national security adviser, who said he has not spoken with his former boss about the funeral. "It's scandalous. He should have been included in the official party. I suppose in the White House there was some resentment that the president was so critical of Bush at the convention."

Whatever, dude.

If Carter had been snubbed, it would have been wholly warranted, but he wasn't. It appears that it was likely a misunderstanding fueled by media hype.

Poor Jimmy Carter, he seems like such a nice man! Too bad he was perhaps the worst President ever to hold office. His own cabinet didn't even vote for him when he ran against Ronald Reagan! I think it is a good thing what he does for Habitat for Humanity! Maybe he should stick with things like that!

God Bless Jimmy Carter and his entire family! It is better he opted not to go. This way it makes it easier to not remember those gosh awful Carter White House Years. Run away inflation, the windfall tax, Billy beer,the hostage crisis,and Aah yes as I recall his entire cabinet did not even vote for him! Oh! I almost forgot the lines to buy gas, and how the oil business really suffered...Thank you Jimmy for habitat for humanity! Your really doing well with that! Keep it up!

Ah, yes....it seems there was another person whose entire cabinet "did not even vote for him." Or rather, they denied him... one even THREE times before the cock crowed... Political popularity does not equal goodness.
The Pope himself was almost assassinated, by a man he later forgave.
God bless Jimmy Carter forever...

Yes!, but no one except maybe his family voted for him either! I agree God bless Jimmy Carter! I feel sorry for such a loser.

I wonder if you can even buy Billy Beer anymore? Did Billy Carter die? Billy beer and peanuts! The Carters are a great family! Every great family must have a black sheep... What a great family! Jimmy Carter is really a nice man doing all that work for habitat for humanity is really kind of fun! My husband and I have done some of that ourselves. I think one of the greatest things he will be remembered for is Habitat for Humanity. I think alot of people have forgotten about the hostage crisis gas lines, runaway inflation and the windfall profit tax! No really, Jimmy Carter was really an interesting and very nice man!

I remember Jimmy Carter telling us all we needed to turn our thermostats down. I remember the gas lines. I remember the hostage crisis. I remember the widfall profits tax. I remember my Granparents voting Republican for the first time. I remember when Gerald Ford was defeated by Jimmy Carter. I wasn't of age to vote quite yet, but I remember the next election. I voted for Ronald Reagan! Those were the good old Carter White House Presidential years. We all would sit around the fireplace and cozy up and have a Billy beer, some peanuts and toss the shells in the fire for a little fuel. Yep! those were the days!
