Will Vs. Carter: The Battle of the Briefing Book

Our good friend and disastrous one-term president Jimmy Carter is telling a fib, and George Will ain't gonna stand still for it. Read the whole thing, but the intro is particularly delicious:
A quarter of a century has passed since 44 states said "No, thanks" to Jimmy Carter's offer to serve a second term, yet he still evidently thinks his loss is explained not by foreign policy debacles, such as invading Iran with eight helicopters, and a misery index -- inflation plus unemployment -- of 22, almost triple today's index.
Ahh, that's satisfying stuff...
