A few weeks ago, the conservative Right Wing News released their poll of right-wing blogs to determine the worst Americans of all time. Topping their list, ahead of “all the gangsters, serial killers, mass murderers incompetent & crooked politicians, spies, traitors, and ultra left-wing kooks in all of American history” ahead of Timothy McVeigh, Benedict Arnold, Alger Hiss, The Rosenbergs (and even ahead of Obama) sat Jimmy Carter.
So what does Carter do to retaliate? Why, he flies to North Korea, frees an American (and a devout Christian to boot) being held there who had been sentenced to eight years hard labour for crossing the North Korean border on a one man peace mission. Carter also got a commitment from their government to restart the stalled six-nation nuclear disarmament talks, and even helped defuse rising tensions over the recent sinking of a South Korean ship.
As Blue Girl put it “Another monstrous act by the Worst. American. Ever.”
