Jimmy Carter Past Due for Retirement from the Public Scene

I'm reminded of aged ball players who keep playing even as their stats decline until they are remembered for their declining years rather than their triumphant ones. A new favorite blogger friend says Jimmy Carter was her favorite president. I've heard some say he was their favorite past president. But over the past few years he has become a terrible witness for Jesus. Sniping at sitting presidents is not very nice. Comparing Christian Fundamentalists to Islamic Extremists, as he did on Larry King this week, is reprehensible.

He has destroyed any vestige of respect I may have had for him by his strident Lefty positions on everything. Get off the stage, Jimmy.

For an interesting take on his new book go here.
