Sanctimonious Hypocrisy

Whatever would Coretta Scott King say? Just days after Jimmy Carter used her funeral to oppose President Bush's warrantless surveillance program against Al Qaeda, The Washington Times reports that "in 1977, Mr. Carter and his attorney general, Griffin B. Bell, authorized warrantless electronic surveillance used in the conviction of two men for spying on behalf of Vietnam."

What's more, the courts upheld it.

Carter lacks the grace to apologize -- but he should.

I owe a lot to Jimmy Carter. His weak, failed presidency was a major reason my politics shifted to the right. His current hypocrisy reminds me of how correct I was in making that change.
