What's Mallard raving about today?
Can I confess that, just in a general sense, I enjoy the way that everything President Carter does causes out-of-proportion apoplexy among the Right Wing Rabies Carriers? It's not because I agree or disagree with President Carter...it's just the way they go atomic and he refuses to give a rat's ass. For that fact alone, I love the man.
I believe this specific reference must refer to President Carter's visit to Hamas. His fairly rational assessment that any Middle East solution will, of necessity, involve Hamas being part of the political process cannot go over well with the foot-stamping, breath-holding, saber-rattling crowd of idiots who are still waiting for this approach to bear fruit.
When you consider that, in 1982, Ronald Reagan removed Iraq from the list of states supporting international terrorism and sent Special Envoy Donald Rumsfeld to shake hands with Saddam Hussein, it's also spectacularly hypocritical.
Not that there's anything unusual about that...I'm just saying.
