Jimmy Carter Tells Stephen Colbert He’ll Become a Catholic When a Female Priest Asks Him to Join Her Church

I’m always so amazed by Jimmy Carter. He comes across as your lovable, huggable grandpa, if your grandpa also happens to be one of the smartest, most compassionate, thoughtful people in existence.

Your Grandpa Jimmy was on The Colbert Report last night, and watching these two minds meet is enough to let all the Kimyes and the Goops fall from your brain for a glorious 11 minutes. The highlight is, for sure, when Carter gives Stephen his requirements for converting to Catholicism.

(A Note: The Colbert Report site seems to be having some trouble today, so if you’re getting the spinning wheel of doom, watch the videos here.)

    If you ever lived through stagflation, you wouldn't have such a great opinion of grandpa Carter.

    ...

    I mean if you knew a friend who lived through stagflation. More a friend of a friend really. Someone who is not me at ALL. Someone OLD.

  • John G.

    yeah, Carter totally caused that just like Obama causes Russia to invade Crimea. Whoever is in office gets super powers.

  • Blake Shrapnel

    He spearheaded contractionary monetary policy, and then preceded to deregulate AND tax the oil industry, both of which contributed to inflation. So while I'm sure there were other factors, Carter was no mere bystander.
    Plus he could communicate with animals WITH HIS MIND.

  • Cheetahdriver

    Don't forget the Jimmy Carter Desert Classic, either.

  • amberdragonfly

    Nice job. Way to completely ruin his memoirs.

  • AngelenoEwok

    Wait, I thought animals attacked him (I was born in '83, you'll have to break this one down)!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    on a scale from Vietnam to current recession/morass, where does stagflation land?

  • Blake Shrapnel

    There was a 9% uneymployment rate with runaway inflation, so I'd say it comes close. As for Vietnam you can literally blame 10% of The United States' presidents for that.

  • linnyloo

    My mom always says Carter made for one hell of an ex-president. President? Not so much.

  • Mandy

    Woah. My Mom says the exact same thing. She says he didn't have much luck getting in with the boys at Washington but once his term was over he then had the power and more freedom to get shit done.

  • Mrs. Julien

    That's what Mr. J says. Greatest FORMER President.

  • Cheetahdriver

    I will say that W might give him a run for his money (as ex president(check back in 50 years)), but having lived through "Jimmy", there just has never been anyone quite like him. He is one of my examples of why really smart people make relatively lousy presidents.
