In my opinion, Carter jumped the shark when he first entered politics, but I was to young to remember then. Anyway, as an ex-president Carter certainly jumped the shark when he gave in to Kim Jong Ils nuclear program, but you have to blame that one on Clinton, not Carter. Certainly, Carter has jumped the shark with his recent book on palestine - especially when liberals like Alan Dershowitz say
s your an idiot.
Carter has gone even beyond the errors of his book in interviews, in which he has said that the situation in Israel is worse than the crimes committed in Apartheid South Africa. When asked whether he believed that Israel's "persecution" of Palestinians was "[e]ven worse . . . than a place like Rwanda," Carter answered, "Yes. I think -- yes."
