Somebody Never Came Out Of The Malaise

From the "annals of self-awareness" files...

I don't know about lust in his heart, but Jimmy Carter holds a grudge longer than anyone I ever heard of. I'll never forget seeing a Frontline bio of Reagan in which Walter Mondale managed gracious admiration for an old political foe -- and relished Reagan's line about his "youth and inexperience" in the re-telling. But poor old Carter had to get his digs in, even 25 years later.
Now he's going back even further in time to attack another dead foe. Deeply jealous of Obama for getting health care through, he's letting the world know it would have happened on his watch...if not for Teddy Kennedy.
CARTER: The fact is that we would have had comprehensive health care now, had it not been for Ted Kennedy deliberately blocking the legislation that I proposed in 1978 or 1979.
STAHL: And you blame Teddy for the failure?
CARTER: Exactly.
STAHL: Health care, his issue.
CARTER: Exactly. It was his fault. Ted Kennedy killed the bill.
STAHL: Just to spite you? That’s the implication.
CARTER: That’s the implication. He did not want to see me have a major success in that realm of American life.
Let's pretend for a second that's true. Can you imagine a more ungracious remark? Or one that reveals more about the inner workings of the heart? Sad.

Update: Who is Mr. Carter's biggest fan?
