Removing All Doubt

Remember that saying, "Better to be silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."? Jimmy Carter really, really needs to pay attention to that. There's a great editorial at Examiner regarding his book, "Palestine - Peace, Not Apartheid." I don't think I've read one positive editorial regarding that book, and many learned people trash it as full of lies and distortions. From Jimmy Carter? Say it isn't so. The whole editorial is worth a read, but the last line is best:

Carter would do himself and his countrymen a favor by permanently resisting the urge to offer any further commentary on world affairs.

Democrats seem to have a real problem with bowing out gracefully.
