Jimma, Jimma, Jimma

Jimmy Carter keeps chipping away at my desire to see him as just a well meaning old fool. The old fool part stays, but more and more he's starting to look like an old-time Southern Christian bigot. What to make of this:

TEL AVIV – Former President Jimmy Carter once complained there were "too many Jews" on the government's Holocaust Memorial Council, Monroe Freedman, the council's former executive director, told WND in an exclusive interview.

Freedman, who served on the council during Carter's term as president, also revealed a noted Holocaust scholar who was a Presbyterian Christian was rejected from the council's board by Carter's office because the scholar's name "sounded too Jewish."
Photo, I think, is from 2002. You can tell because Castro is standing and Carter's mouth is shut.
