"Irrelevant" Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter, the Democrats’ senior statesman, is becoming increasingly “sad” and “irrelevant” according to sneering White House publicists. This after he pointed out, last week, that Tony Blair’s policies in Iraq and elsewhere were “subservient” and “abominable,” and that the Bush administration’s foreign policy was “the worst in (American) history.” Will the sad and increasingly irrelevant Democratic leadership now join Bush in deriding Carter, as they did last year when he published PALESTINE: PEACE NOT APARTHEID, a painfully restrained reflection on the hardships Israel inflicts on the Palestinian people? If so, it will again demonstrate that the movers and shakers of the POP, the Party of Pusillanimity, are as fearful as ever of uttering the obvious; and that, even today, only Democrats who are beyond wanting or needing to be “players” are capable of speaking plain and simple truths.
