He Said He Wanted a Debate, but He Meant a Monologue

America's worst and increasingly strident former President Jimmy Carter, who complains in a new book that one cannot have a debate in the United States taking a position critical of Israel, is ducking a debate with Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz. Carter, with his insufferable arrogance in full form, said, "I don't want to have a conversation even indirectly with Dershowitz. There is no need ... to debate somebody who, in my opinion, knows nothing about the situation in Palestine."

Carter, thus, demonstrates the same disdain for a competent representative of a defensible position that he accuses his opponents of. Perhaps someone should tell Carter that civil exchange with principled opponents is becoming an "endangered value."
