Who's alienating the world again?
Jimmy Carter once again shows why he so richly deserves his Idiotarian of the Year Award. In a speech at the DNC in which he blames Bush for "a devastating reduction in the basic esteem that the rest of the world has for our country", he describes the nations aiding the US in Iraq as "a handful of little tiny countries supposedly helping us".
I think calling the United Kingdom, Poland, Japan, Australia, Norway, the Netherlands, Italy and all the rest 'little tiny countries' who can only 'supposedly' help in a prepared speech is a bit worse than Rumsfeld's offhand comment about 'Old Europe'. Expect to hear about it quite a bit less though.
