It's not enough that the lefties are throwing race cards around like they were, well, dollar bills. Now we have that favorite self righteous moralizer from days gone by...Jimmah Carter weighing. Cue the "Olde Fool" music.....

Former President JIMMAH! said Tuesday that racial politics played a role in South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst during President Obama's speech to Congress last week and in some of the opposition the president has faced since taking office.

Let me sum this up for you...former incompetent President defends current incompetent President. 

Move along....nothing to see here.

UPDATE:  Charles Krauthammer weighs in:

I think there are people who genuinely believe this, and then I think there are a lot of people who don't, but who want to use it as a way to stifle opposition and debate.
Look, in the Bush years, we were told that dissent was the highest form of patriotism. Obama himself as a candidate once used a formulation like that in talking about his refusal to wear a flag pin.
And now, dissent used to be the highest form of patriotism, and now it's the lowest form of racism. In August and over the summer, it [dissent] was a form of mob rule, a demonstration of anger, unruliness, anarchy, and now it has gotten worse.
Look, this charge is so stupid. It is also so offensive, and it's [so] lacking in any evidence of any kind that…this only helps the Republicans. And that's why the White House is not playing into it.
It will increase the intensity of the opponents of Obama healthcare and the [other Obama] policies, because people don't want to be told when they genuinely disagree with a policy that the reason is the lowest of all reasons, namely, racism.
