A famous peanut farmer whom we once made the mistake of electing President is off the farm touting his new book. Our friend, David Lunde of Lundesigns, has designed three new book covers for the Prez, so you can customize your Carter book according to your preferred particular screed contained inside:
Frankly, we think he should have called the book “Mein Carter.” But we’ll always remember him, thusly . . .
Many have asked me to write a column on Jimmuh’s latest outrageous utterances and chickenscratchings. But why do that, when I can’t improve upon my column from 2001, “Shut Up, Jimmy Carter,” a thorough primer on Carter’s record and hypocrisy.
I remember when I was in elementary school and the Peanut Prez was in office, desperately trying to get re-elected. I helped my dad and the Republican Jewish Coalition for Reagan/Bush campaign for Reagan. My dad and his friend made and distributed bright florescent orange bumper stickers with black writing, reading:
ABC: Anybody But Carter
Yes, some slogans are timeless.
I also remember that the overwhelming majority of U.S. Secret Service agents (including those on the Carter Presidential Protective Detail) polled, privately said they were voting for Reagan. They made yellow t-shirts bearing the Presidential Seal with bullet holes through it and the slogan:
You Elect ‘Em. We Protect ‘Em.
The t-shirts were made to demonstrate the disrespect the Secret Service agents had for their idiotic protectee. I badly want one of those t-shirts (as a memento of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Disaster), but can’t find one. I’ve looked and looked, in vain. If you are one of the many federal agents (including from the U.S. Secret Service) who reads this site, and you can help me get one of those shirts, please e-mail me.
