President Snubs Key European Ally!

Well, ex-president that is, as Jimmy Carter obliquely refered to England in his convention speech on Monday as being part of the “handful of little tiny countries supposedly helping us in Iraq“. (Notice that’s two ad hominems in a single sentence: “little tiny” country “supposedly helping us in Iraq”.)

And notice that it’s a blogger who caught this, not Dan, Peter or Tom–or the New York Times.

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first key American ally that Carter’s screwed.

Update: Junkyard Blog notes this Carter’s quip could be taken to mean this ally as well
