Thank God for Jimmy Carter. On the day of the most important speech of his party's 2008 Presidential nominee Barack Obama's life, the former President decides to insert himself into the national conversation. By claiming that Obama's opponent John McCain is "milking" his experience as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, of all things! Here's an excerpt from the breaking news report at USA Today, Carter: McCain 'milking' POW time:
DENVER - Former president Jimmy Carter called Republican presidential candidate John McCain a "distinguished Naval officer," but said the Arizona senator has been "milking every possible drop of advantage" from his time served as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
Oh, and I suppose that you'd prefer that he never mention it? I wonder why?
Way to go Jimmy, you never manage to disappoint!
