Republicans are right- Jimmy Carter is just an awful person:
A rare tropical disease called Guinea worm is closer to being eradicated, according to former President Jimmy Carter and other experts.
There are now only 542 known cases of Guinea worm left worldwide, as of 2012, representing a 48% decrease from 2011, officials said Thursday at a news conference.
“We cannot rest until we get and contain the very last case,” said Dr. Donald R. Hopkins, affiliated with the Carter Center in Atlanta, which has been instrumental in the effort to wipe out Guinea worm.
The World Health Organization this week said in a report that Guinea worm, also called dracunculiasis, has a global eradication target for the year 2015.
So far, only one disease has reached the status of worldwide eradication since 1980: smallpox.
They hate Carter, and loved Bush. That really says everything, doesn’t it?
