Watch Jimmy Carter Take This Whippersnapper Stephen Colbert To School (Video)
Let's just get it out there: We just love Jimmy Carter, and we'd watch him on the Morning Farm Report. Put him across a table from Stephen Colbert, and we are there -- or our DVR is. He's having fun, and has obviously done his homework: he's perfectly ready for the back-and forth with Colbert. If it's a little short on life-changing epiphanies (and why are you looking for life-changing epiphanies on late-night basic cable anyway?), it's a lot of fun to watch Jimmy play with the Colbert Persona. Carter has been making the talk show rounds to flog his new book, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power, which gives him the chance to cut off Colbert with a lovely correction:
Stephen: You've written about a dozen books at this point...
Who cares if they maybe choreographed that in advance? Carter's smile is magnificent.

You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
