    Maybe it's me, but the irony of this is just too much....

    The Attack Submarine Jimmy Carter????? I wonder if it will be in the shape of a peanut?

    LINK

    That's about as scary sounding as the Battleship Mr. Rogers or the Good Ship Lollipop!

    Of course, it could be worse, it could attack sub Hillary Clinton (no, on second thought, that is scary!!!!)

    Nuclear Attack Sub Jimmy Carter, huh?

    Will its crew take it and go around to nations that don't like us and say, "Hey, if you promise not to use it against us in any way....wanna drive it?"

    Just wait until they build the carrier USS John Kerry...they wont know which direction to drive it in....probably just do a bunch of going forward a few feet and then backing up a few feet.

    One the one hand, Carter *was* a nuclear engineer for the Navy on a sub.


    On the other hand, why don't they just re-christen the USS Thresher after him?

    Wouldn't he be better suited to a Green Peace ship?

    Future News Story:


    The Green Peace Cruiser Jimmy Carter today was seen off the coast being hosed down by the US Navy as they protested the testing of Sonar Communications systems which they believe cause whales to beach themselves....

    The attack sub "Jimmy Carter". . . indeed. That's like naming a convent after Bill Clinton. Or buying a chihuahua and calling it a doberman. Or sending a frenchman to teach a course on ethics.
