Jimmy Carter to Guinness Book of World Records

We wrote not long ago on these Take-A-Pen pages about Jimmy Carter's book "Palestine, Peace not Apartheid" that it may be a promising candidate for the Guinness Book of World Records in a special category, by saying three blatant untruths in a title of only four words: first of all Palestine is not a place or country anywhere, two: Palestinians and Peace are two words which can not be honestly said in the same breath, and, thirdly, any hint to apartheid about Israel is as absurdly untrue as... er...( as to say Jimmy Carter was an excellent president?)
Now Jeff Jacoby, columnist of the Jewish World Review is also contemplating about Jimmy Carter's candidacy for the Guinness Book of World Records in the "Pot Calling a Kettle Black" category.
Several Americans have already said and written that Carter was probably the worst president the US ever had. His adversaries laughed at him: the Ayatollah Khumeini said that "Neither does Carter have the guts for military action nor would anyone listen to him."
Jeff Jacoby says now on this point that "It took Americans only four years to realize what a disaster Carter had been; they booted him out in 1980 by a 44-state landslide. 'The worst in history,' he (Carter) says of Bush. Look who's talking."
