“The pacifist is as surely a traitor to his country and to humanity as is the most brutal wrongdoer”
CLEVELAND (AP) – An airport spokeswoman in Cleveland says Jimmy Carter was taken off a plane by rescue crews and taken to a hospital.
Jackie Mayo, a spokeswoman at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, says the 85-year-old former president was a passenger on a Delta flight to Cleveland late Tuesday morning and became ill.
Mayo says she has no information on Carter’s symptoms. He was taken to MetroHealth Hospital, where a spokeswoman said no information was available.
Carter has been traveling to promote his new book, “White House Diary,” which was released last week. The website for Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Cleveland says he was scheduled to appear at 1 p.m. Tuesday to sign and talk about the book.
This one’s a toughie for me. I want him to shut up with his idiotic pro-Hamas anti-Israel blathering, but don’t necessarily rejoice in his illness. It’s tricky to be glad for justice, when you know you’re not perfect yourself. But in my opinion, the man is a traitor to this country and so I am glad that he is at least temporarily unable to spread his bologna.

More at the source. I can understand his upset stomach. If I was spouting all that traitorous hogwash I think I’d feel ill, too.
