A Carterstrophe, and a right move by Michigan's Congressman Knollenberg

Jimmy Carter, worst ex-president, a living carterstrophe, overseer of crooked elections, and victim of rabbit attacks just doesn't know when to stop digging.

If he had just left it at his excellent work with habitat for humanity, his mediocre at best performance as a President might have been overlooked and he would have been viewed as a productive fellow.

Instead he feels the need to try and formulate US foreign policy for himself, even going against the State Department's recommendation (no mean feat, that) and trying to hug every terrorist scumbag that comes his way.

He met and hugged the head of Hamas, an Islamic terrorist group as designated by the State Department and by their own acts.

He tried to meet and hug Palestinian Islamic Jihad, an even more nasty Islamic terrorist group (hat tip Little Green Footballs).

What's next? Jimmy giving the latest second-in-command (they blow up so fast so there's a lot of turnaround and opportunity for advancement) of Al-Qaeda a little tongue action?

Congressman Joe Knollenberg thinks Jimmy's actions have been reprehensible and so: Knollenberg wants Carter Center Funding Cut
Rep. Joe Knollenberg is pushing legislation that would prohibit the
federal government from giving money to a center headed by former
President Jimmy Carter - a reaction to Carter's plans to meet with
Hamas, an Islamic militant group.Knollenberg, a Bloomfield Township
Republican, introduced the legislation in Congress on Wednesday to block
future funding of the Carter Center, a human rights organization based
in Atlanta and founded by the former president.

Carter has been criticized by officials in the United States and Israel
for agreeing to meet with Hamas as part of a Mideast peace mission.
Hamas has opposed peace negotiations and has called for Israel's
destruction, and the United States considers Hamas a terrorist

Said Knollenberg: "America must speak with one voice against our
terrorist enemies. It sends a fundamentally troubling message when an
American dignitary is engaged in dialogue with terrorists. My
legislation will make sure that taxpayer dollars are not being used to
support discussions or negotiations with terrorist groups."

Well done Congressman, well done.

Oh, and Jimmy, please go back to building houses instead of pandering to America's enemies.
