The push to get taxpayers to pay for the upkeep of Jimmy Carter’s brother’s gas station and turn it into a national park (suggested name: “Mount Lushmore”) began last year, but it was dealt a blow yesterday:

The gas station of former President Jimmy Carter’s beer drinking brother will not become a national historic site paid for by taxpayers — at least, not yet.

Legislation that would expand the former president’s national historic site by 30 acres at a cost of $17 million over five years was pulled from consideration during a Senate committee meeting Thursday. Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming offered an amendment preventing the Billy Carter Service Station Museum from being included in the expansion, making the Georgia museum a national park. The House has already passed similar legislation.

I’d oppose $17 million a year for a shrine to Jimmy Carter, let alone his brother.
