Don't hold back, Jimmy

By Creature

Former president Jimmy Carter on current president GWB:

"I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history," Carter told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in a story that appeared in the newspaper's Saturday editions. "The overt reversal of America's basic values as expressed by previous administrations, including those of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon and others, has been the most disturbing to me."

As for Tony Blair:

Carter also lashed out Saturday at British prime minister Tony Blair. Asked how he would judge Blair's support of Bush, the former president said: "Abominable. Loyal. Blind. Apparently subservient."

Douglas Brinkley, a Carter biographer, described Carter's comments as "unprecedented." Unprecedented and sorely needed. Let the conservative backlash begin. Hold on.

More Carter here.
