JIMMY CARTER CAUGHT IN WEB OF DECEIPT AND INDISCRETION

Former president Jimmy Carter, in a parallel to the recent near disaster of a Russian submarine, boarded his namesake this week and found himself caught up in a web of deceipt and indiscretion that continues to submerge his misguided efforts at post-presidency statesmanship and hamper heroic rescue efforts at preserving an already damaged reputation -- one irreversibly scuttled by his impolitic decision to invite Michael Moore to the Carter's family box at last year's Democratic National Convention.

The question becomes now just how little oxygen does discredited Jimmy Carter have left, as his ship founders at the bottom of storm-tossed political seas and he continues to torpedo what is already a lackluster legacy?
