Get ready folks for some of the most vile tweets and comments to ooze through the Intertubes as former US President Jimmy Carter, announced he has cancer.

Admittedly, Schlussel can be one sick puppy when she posts online, but this is still so odious.


Jimmy Carter has liver cancer that has metastasized. He is 90 and it's a triumph to live this long and this fully. I hope he feels well and happy as he faces this next challenge.

But I dread the coming commentary like this. I hope we can collect it all for the next time Republicans sanctimoniously lecture liberals about our alleged disrespectful behavior in these circumstances. You know, like when we are criticized for celebrating someone's life on the occasion of their death.

Can you help us out?
