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 peopleā€”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.
