Carter Son "Victory" Ain't Much

The Enemy Press AP posted a story about failed President Jimmy Carter's son Jack winning the Democrat primary yesterday in Nevada. To read it you'd expect some hard hitting election activity, but, well read the lede: "Presidential son Jack Carter easily won the Democratic primary to challenge U.S. Sen. John Ensign...."

That's about it dear readers. Jack Carter did "easily" win the contest to be defeated by Ensign in November, but it wasn't because he was a great candidate or hero to be seen all over the Silver State. No, Carter easily won because the only other Democrat in the primary was some extreme leftist with no money from the rural part of the state. Ruby Jee Tun had no money, claimed that because of her "moral compass" that she wouldn't take any, and just spouted the same old tired leftist confiscatory views of everything. No need to even elaborate on this failed candidate.

Nope, no great shakes for Carter - or anyone for that matter - to win a primary election like that. As soon as Jack's euphoria wears off from that hard hitting battle, he'll notice that he's already behind in the polls by twenty points, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Now, it's possible he could make up some of that and this race could be tighter, but who in their right minds would want to bring back the Carter years? Jack Carter has not differentiated himself from the failed policies of his seemingly terrorist loving father. The Democrat party will try to tie Ensign to President Bush, but the Republicans have a more effective weapon: the failed presidency and policies of the only President to have been bitch-slapped out of office, James Earl Carter.

It may well be an interesting race, we'll see.
