Did you know that Jimmy Carter's grandson was the original source of the Romney 47% tape?

I didn't. I just saw a clip of Jimmy Carter with Piers Morgan talking about it. Jimmy was beaming as he told the story.

Go Carters!

9. Wrong Carter. Jason (State Senator) and James are cousins.

James found the 47% video.

8. It was the absolutely greatest news to me

10. Perfect karma. The GOP has mocked
