Operative BG writes in tonight with the following referring to this post:

Talk about getting it everything wrong. Look at the top center of that Time cover. The center story says, “Beyond Detente: Why We Can’t Beat The Soviets.”

If the story inside didn’t begin with the words, “Because Jimmy Carter is president,” then Time’s descent into irrelevancy had started earlier than I had believed.

Reminds me of something I heard on the news radio station on the way home today: apparently Jimmy Carter is claiming that in the closing days of his failing presidency, he had a Health Care reform bill ready but…..insert drum roll here……wait for it……Ted Kennedy stopped it.  Yes!  Former President Carter was stymied by Teddy K because Kennedy wanted that ground for himself.  Allegedly…in Carter’s words, at least.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
