All the blogs (and some of the subblogs) are guilty of this (saying 'Oh It's Gawker' dismisses how much this is accepted everywhere on Gawker media) and I think people are way too comfortable making fun of older people—or even just anyone that is older than they are. This is really low though and totally uncalled for, imo. Carter has reasons to be concerned about spying since he is a former president. We should all be worried to some extent about the reach of the NSA. But lol, he's old. Let's make fun of him. And ignore a history of remarkable achievement and really strong ethics like Carter who legitimately seems like he cares about human rights.
