Thereeza and Dhimmi Carter - Twice The Comedy In One News Cycle

Theresa Heinz-Kerry and Jimmy Carter are here to keep us amused today. We'll begin with Theresa's opinion on the rigors of modern teaching.

From USA Today interview with Teresa Heinz Kerry:

Q: You'd be different from Laura Bush?

A: Well, you know, I don't know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don't know that she's ever had a real job — I mean, since she's been grown up.

The White House politely provided some additional background. Just to help USA Toady flesh out their story.

From the White House:

Inspired by her second grade teacher, she earned a bachelor of science degree in education from Southern Methodist University in 1968. She then taught in public schools in Dallas and Houston. In 1973 she earned a master of library science degree from the University of Texas at Austin and worked as a public school librarian in Austin [until 1977].

So there you have it teachers and librarians, Theresa Heinz-Kerry thinks that YOU just ride the coattails of others.

Now on to our good friend Dhimmi Carter.....

He was a former US president. Then the American electorate got to know the man.

Gubner Dhimmi seems to think that whole American Revolution thing was senseless bloodshed. If only The British Parliament had been more sensitive. If Prime Minister Townshend and King George III had offered complimentary boxes of Earl Gray to replace all the tea chucked into Boston Harbor, I'm sure Thomas Paine would have settled down and become a prosperous habadasher.

The entire purpose of this inane nonsense is to bash our current President from a position of historical depth and knowledge. It might help if Gubner Dhimmi were to actually read up on 18th Century England. King George III could no more do what Dhimmi Carter wanted than he could have grown an additional head.

The entire concept England's national self-image was driven by it's international empire. The sun was never suppossed to set on it, and His Royal Majesty didn't take guff off of upstart legislatures who operated without his royal charter. Hence Jimmy Carter is about as smart on this as he was on most things. Not Very.

Update I: Sean Hackbarth had this to say about the lovely Thereeza.

Update II: Spoons Experience very, nearly almost changed his vote to Bush, thanks to the fatuous imbecility of Dhimmi Carter.

Update III: Vodkapundit suggests Dhimmi should make like The Blessed Lord and PLEASE go back to carpentry.

Update IV: Captain's Quarters skewers Thereeza.
