Navy Reveals USS Jimmy Carter.

Apparently this is the most heavily armed submarine in history.  I guess that's in honor of Jimmy Carter's unwavering commitment to defending the values of America, at any cost. Oh wait, I'm sorry. That's George W. Bush. What in the world is the Navy doing naming a sub after a president that weakened the military and botched nearly every military exercise he attempted? Here are my suggestion of names for a Jimmy Carter sub:

USS Fidel Castro
USS Ayatollah Khomeini
USS Yasser Arafat
USS Morally Unclear

I respect the fact that he held the office for one term, but he has to be the most ineffective president of the 20th century, other than Ford, but Ford didn't cause or support international catastrophies or brutal dictators. Correct me if I'm wrong on Ford, however. :)

I, for one, like it. It just means that Jimmy can finally do some good, for once!
