Behold the vast gulf between Earth and Bizarro World

On Bizarro World

Jimmy Carter is an evil man. It is painful to label a past president of the United States as a force for darkness. But it is dangerous to let a man like Jimmy Carter stalk around the globe cloaked in the garb of American royalty, planting the seeds of Western civilization's destruction.
Meanwhile, back on Earth

In the 1950s the 3-foot-long guinea worm ravaged the bodies of an estimated 50 million people, forcing victims through months of pain while the worm exited through a swollen blister on the leg, making it impossible for them to tend to cows or harvest crops. By 1986, the number dropped to 3.5 million. Last year only 3,190 cases were reported.

Today the worm is even closer to being wiped out. Fewer than 1,700 cases have been found this year in only four countries – Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali and Sudan, where more than 95 percent of the cases are. The worm's near-eradication is thanks in large part to the efforts of [Jimmy] Carter and his foundation.
On Bizarro World, Newt Gingrich can be heard on Sean Hannity's radio program talking about how conservatives are disadvantaged by their respect for truth because liberals and Democrats lie ruthlessly and without conscience.

While back on Earth, Newt Gingrich, when not demonizing Democrats with rhetoric similar to which the Nazis employed against Jews, can be heard demonizing Democrats as merchants of death with pure lies for the sake of partisan gain; and when he's not doing that, he can be found telling lies about other matters: the consistent thread being telling lies.

What a long strange trip it's been for Newt "divorce on spouse's deathbed" Gingrich.

How does a dope smoking serial philanderer garner respect from so called conservatives who place a high priority on character and family values?

If you need a NSFW comic relief, the Onion has a great Carter missive.,11356/

If I don't laugh, I'll cry.
