Jimmy Carter thinks his words might be important to the NSA or anybody else

Remember Jimmy Carter? You might not. He used to be the worst president in the history of the United States, until the latest guy stepped in.

It’s been decades since Carter has been allowed to screw anything else up, but he still wants to think of himself as relevant. Rebecca Shabad, The Hill:

Former President Jimmy Carter (D) says he thinks the National Security Agency might be monitoring his emails.

In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Carter said he sends messages to foreign leaders via snail mail instead.

“As a matter of fact, you know, I have felt that my own communications were probably monitored. And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write the letter myself, put it in the post office and mail it,” he said “because I believe if I sent an e-mail, it will be monitored.”

Well, if they were that determined to spy on you, Jimmy, why wouldn’t they intercept your snail mail too? Guess you didn’t think about that.

What in the world could Jimmy Carter be sharing with world leaders that would be worth spying on, anyway? Peanut farming tips? Matlock fanfic? Bragging about keeping the White House tennis court schedule running like clockwork?

Nah, this is just Carter’s way of reminding us that he’s still somebody. After all, he talks to world leaders! Well, he sends them letters. Which then end up in the round file, no doubt.

We couldn’t have done any worse with Jimmy’s brother Billy. At least he produced something that was useful to people:
