Jimmy Carter

Here's one more thing a Democratic ex-President has done with his life. What a great addition to his legacy. & remember, Time magazine's "Blog of the year" - Powertools - called Pres. Carter a traitor. ReThugs are so compassionate, aren't they? Good for Carter. I hope Assrocket chokes on this one, or better yet, gets one of this worms coming out of his ass, an inch at a time.

"For untold generations here, yardlong, spaghetti-thin worms erupted from the legs or feet — or even eye sockets — of victims, forcing their way out by exuding acid under the skin until it bubbled and burst. The searing pain drove them to plunge the blisters into the nearest pool of water, whereupon the worm would squirt out a milky cloud of larvae, starting the cycle anew.

'The pain is like if you stab somebody,' said Hyacinth Igelle, a farmer with a worm coming out of a hand so swollen and tender that he could not hold a hoe. He indicated how the pain moved slowly up his arm. 'It is like fire — it comes late, but you feel it even unto your heart.'

Now, thanks to a relentless 20-year campaign led by former President Jimmy Carter, Guinea worm is poised to become the first disease since smallpox to be pushed into oblivion. Fewer than 12,000 cases were found last year, down from 3 million in 1986."
