When asked whether she would take a meeting with has-been President, Useful idiot, and self-aggrandizing tool Jimmy Carter, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declined.
Carter, recently returned from a trip as a self-appointed, unauthorized envoy to North Korea (whose leaders wouldn't meet with him either) made the ridiculous assertion that failing to provide further food aid to North Korea was a violation of that country's human rights.
Laughable. Assinine. Bone-headed. First of all, nations are not endowed with human rights; individuals are. Second of all, North Korean has long been known to divert food aid to its military, while its civilian populace suffers malnutrition. Yes, that would be the same military that regulary distinguishes itself by such hijinks as bombarding South Korean islands with artillery, sinking South Korean vessels with torpedoes, and infiltrating South Korea with spies and saboteurs. Just across the water, the Japanese people are suffering the effects of earthquakes and tidal waves. They are among a long list of people more deserving of our aid.
All this goes a long way toward explaining the reaction of Ms Clinton when asked if she would meet with The Jimmy, the reaction that finds me most unaccustomedly in agreement. "No," she said. "Hell no."
