    Jimmy Carter: Sexual Offender

    By kyle | November 9, 2010

    One of several amusing gags in the Rachel McAdams-Harrison Ford-Diane Keaton comedy “Morning Glory” is a bit where a struggling morning-chat program messes up its graphics with the result that, as Ford grimly intones the details of a sexual offender wanted in Wisconsin, the chryon “sexual offender” remains onscreen as the photo above it switches from a police sketch to the subject of the next segment: Jimmy Carter. So Ford starts talking about what former president Jimmy is upt to while behind his head there is a picture of Carter with the words “Sexual Offender” running beneath. Well, we all know he has lusted in his heart.
