10 to 1 this show will make Carter look like a much better president than the American Experience show on Reagan which was shown often recently.

Part 1 was pretty ugly.

I think a better headline would have been "Crank up the Betamax"

Right after I adjust the thermostat up to 78 degrees.

And succumb to General Malaise (TM)...

Spend all my life savings NOW "before all the prices can go up again!"...

And join the Soviet Communist Party "to be on the winning side"...

"I think a better headline would have been 'Crank up the Betamax'"

Oh man, that one had me laughing. Perfect.

That's an old episode. The bit where they show a hapless Carter trying to hold off Reagan brings back fuzzy, but warm, memories.
