Step across this line, Kinsley

Slate's Michael Kinsley tears former President Jimmy Carter a new one, calling his new book "moronic" and that,
"comparing Israel to the former white racist government of South Africa is a foolish and unfair comparison, unworthy of the man who won—and deserved—the Nobel Peace Prize for bringing Israel and Egypt together in the Camp David Accords, and who has lent such luster to the imaginary office of former president."
President Carter's book is selling very well, and things like this will help. Being guilty of simplistic writing around the mid-East peace process certainly didn't seem to hurt this goof any.
