Hi, my name is Jimmy and I'm a bitter old man...

The Boston Globe has a snippet from Jimmy Carter’s upcoming appearance on 60 Minutes where he’s flacking his latest “book”. Jimmy is in full whine mode…

“The fact is that we would have had comprehensive health care now, had it not been for Ted Kennedy’s deliberately blocking the legislation that I proposed,” Carter tells Lesley Stahl, according to a 60 Minutes press release today. “It was his fault. Ted Kennedy killed the bill.”

Carter also repeats in the interview his view that Kennedy ran against him for the 1980 nomination out of spite. “He did not want to see me have a major success in that realm of life,” Carter says.

Gee whiz, I wonder what will be next. And while I’m wondering, I wonder why in world would a publisher hustle a book or a TV network flack an interview from an obviously deranged old failure? I can hardly wait until TheWon™ is pushing Jimmy’s age.
