TODAY IN HISTORY'S GREATEST MONSTER: How Jimmy Carter saved the trucking industry. Not that Bacevich would necessarily agree with the statement I am about to make, but it's because of him that I am now of the view that Carter was the last serious person in the White House. (Well--Poppy sort of was. His public persona wasn't completely theatrical, at least.) Which might be seen as an overly hipster political stance--if there's a president hipsters would love, it's Carter. I mean he's from the 70s and everybody hated him and everything! (Everybody hated Dubya too, but there's some things not even irony can make enjoyable.)
