So I’m reading the lead paragraph to this article in the WaPo and thinking, “OK, this is a good development.”
Former president Jimmy Carter will lead a bipartisan commission to examine problems with the U.S. election system, American University’s Center for Democracy and Election Management said yesterday.
Then I read the second paragraph and threw up in my mouth.
Carter, a Democrat whose Carter Center has monitored more than 50 elections around the world, will co-chair the private commission with Republican James A. Baker III, who served as secretary of state under President George H.W. Bush.
OK, maybe I didn’t throw up in my mouth. But, Jesus Christ, James A. Baker the Tres? That bastard oversaw the Republican theft of the 2000 presidential election. Is his evil supposed to balance out Carter’s good?
