“Look, That Rabbit’s Got A Vicious Streak A Mile Wide!”

via HotAir, Kass plays the Killer Right Wing Extremist Military Veteran Christianist Tenther Commando Raaaaacist Bunny card:

Anyone who thinks Obama is safe from a rabbit attack has forgotten what happened to President Jimmy Carter In 1979. Carter was attacked by a swimming rabbit, and the subsequent “Killer Rabbit” stories helped destroy his presidency. It led to the election of Republican Ronald Reagan in a landslide and an unprecedented economic revival.

There are eerie similarities. Like Obama, Carter was at that point where he was constantly viewed as weak and ineffectual. His fellow Democrats had lost patience with him. Liberal writers who once fawned on him had turned against him.

The whole scene has been visualized at Political Clown Parade, for your delectation. Mwahahahaha.

Bonus points for identifying title reference.

    It was more like the Killer Economy that sunk Carter
    Another World Class Neophyte like President Present

    My favorite movie:  Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  They should have listened to Tim the Enchanter.

    Obama’s bunny moment may be closer than we realize, considering Martha’s Vineyard is in Massachusetts.

    I wouldn’t trust Obama with a hand grenade, holy or not.

    Actually, I don’t blame Obama for fearing the rabbit, not if said rabbit is like this one………

    It would be delicious fun to get some folks together and throw plush rabbits over the white house fence or position them with their heads between the bars trying to get at Barry as a way of highlighting the similarity to Carter.
