Jack Carter Has The Perfect Stand-In

Unfortunately, Jack Carter has been hospitalized and is being treated for severe colitis. However, Jack has managed to find the best stand-in in the whole world - his father, former President Jimmy Carter.

Yesterday, President Carter addressed the crowds at the Ferria Patria in Las Vegas and didn't disappoint:
If the reaction at Freedom Park on Sunday is any indication, having a former president as a stand-in helps a lot more than it hurts his son's campaign.
If you're out in the Vegas are today you can watch the president live:
At about 10:55 a.m., President Carter will speak to the Laborers International Union of North America in the Ballroom at the Paris Hotel, 3655 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas. The President’s remarks will follow those of former U.S. Senator John Edwards.

At 2 p.m., President Carter will speak to the Retired Public Employees of Nevada at the Paseo Verde Public Library, 280 South Green Valley Parkway in Henderson.

As much as we like, no: love, President Carter, we hope Jack will have a speedy recovery and be able to get out on the campaign trail again. Get well soon, Jack!
