Carter Should Apologize Now

It's unfortunate when a former president stoops to race-baiting to support his failing and increasingly desperate democratic cohorts. Hey, it's the season for apologies, isn't it? So apologizing shouldn't be too hard. Carter should apologize to the U.S. for his idiotic and poorly conceived commentary. Might as well rebuke him formally too, as rebuking is also in style lately! Ann Althouse demands as much in her blog post:
Jimmy Carter's supremely sleazy accusation requires a solid, sound rebuke. It is an effort to place the President of the United States beyond criticism.
Imagine if, before last year's election, someone had argued: If a black man becomes President, anyone who dares to criticize him will be called a racist.
Jimmy Carter is doing something that, before the election, he would not have revealed that he planned to do. It is a low and despicable political move that he should be ashamed of.
And since demanding apologies is all the rage, let me say that I would like the wizened old husk of a former President to beg our forgiveness.
