I owe you $5 because I failed to alert you to Jimmy Carter: Rock And Roll President that aired free on CNN Sunday night.
And now I want you to rent it for $4.99.
As all eyes are on Georgia today, it was particularly apt: a peanut farmer from Plains who grew up without indoor plumbing or electricity and went on to become a moral beacon to the world.
Whose pals and admirers included Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Gregg Allman, Dolly Parton, Dizzy Gillespie, Aretha Franklin — even John Wayne makes an appearance.
The film reminds us — as listening to Barack Obama’s A Promised Land does or as listening to Bill Clinton’s or Al Gore’s or Hillary’s and now Joe’s speeches do — just how extraordinary those who’ve won the popular vote to be our president can be.
All of them sharing a deep concern for mankind.
Can we say the same of Mitch McConnell?
Sorry about the $5.
