'Ware the Ides of March

I'm generally a a peaceful person, but it's hard have sympathy for the mastermind of the murder of several thousand people. But when I heard about this, I started thinking torture was a pretty good idea:

[Khalid Sheik] Mohammed also said he plotted to assassinate several former presidents, including Jimmy Carter, a scheme not previously revealed.

Wait, Jimmy Carter Jimmy Carter? Is there some guy other than the champion of human rights, peanut farmer, and writer of bad poetry1? I've never been so naive as to wonder why the terrorists don't like us, but Jimmy Carter?! For reals? That's like hating Wilbur the pig or homemade oatmeal raisin cookies- you can fight it if you want, but you're really not doing yourself any favors denying yourself all that wholesome, peace-y, peanutty goodness.

1. How much fun would a poetry slam between Jewel and Jimmy Carter be? None. Poetry slams are stupid.
