Malaise Craze: The Offhanded Compliment of the Day

Today’s “It’s like Britney Spears calling you a bad parent” offhanded compliment of the day comes from former President Jimmy Carter, and is directed at Dick Cheney:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former President Jimmy Carter on Wednesday denounced Vice President Dick Cheney as a “disaster” for the country and a “militant” who has had an excessive influence in setting foreign policy.

It’s true, too, because Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Abbas, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Fidel Castro were nodding their heads in agreement as Sean Penn and Danny Glover shined their shoes.


“Slow and down the middle, Jimmy. If you let us hit home runs we’ll respect you more. Trust me.”
