Jimmy Carter Speaks Truth About Racist America, Racist America Upset

God bless the old peanut farmer. Jimmy Carter, speaking on the TV in reference to Joe Wilson’s recent outburst, said what a lot of us have been thinking for a while now: a lot of the anger over President Obama’s tenure so far has less to do with the details of his policy than with the fact that he’s black (and nothing gets this country more riled up then when someone says something we’ve all been thinking.) I’m pretty sure this is true. You’re pretty sure this is true. Most of America is pretty sure this is true.

Cue hyperventilating indignation.
