TOP IDIOTS OF THE WEEK:
Once again we have a tie for the winner of this week's Top Idiot:
White House Communications director Anita Dunn joins the ranks of Top Idiots, for
being stupid enough to reveal,
, that one of her favorite philosopher is mass murderer Mao Tse
Tung. In a speech to high school students, no less.
Obama's Justice Department ties for Top Idiot. They just overruled the citizens
of a small N. Carolina town
who had voted to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections.
The reason?? The Justice Dept. decided that equal rights for black voters cannot
be achieved without the Democratic Party. I kid you not.
Another government entity, the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) is a close second.
They are actively promoting
the same type of loans that caused the
mortgage meltdown. Maybe the real idiots are us taxpayers, who will, once again,
be stuck with the bill when more deadbeats default.
The 5th Circuit Court - for ruling that victims of Hurricane Katrina have standing
to sue over global warming
This week's award goes to Emily Douglas, Web editor for The Nation magazine. She
said, and apparently
, that making the “recession worse” and making goods “more expensive”
for Americans are means to reduce consumerism and preserve the environment.
TOP PC IDIOT:
This award goes to whatever government agency in the UK fined a West Yorks farmer
£150 for keeping a cow in a darkened
barn, therefore failing to 'meet the psychological needs' of the bovine. I am not
making this stuff up.
A woman being driven around in a rented limousine pulled up at a coat store and
announced she'd won the lottery and would pay for everyone's purchases. She ended
causing a riot
when customers realized it was a hoax. And the moral of this
A Michigan woman called Saginaw County sheriff's deputies to report the theft
of her marijuana plants. She was was booked
on charges of manufacturing and delivering marijuana. Duh.
A Pennsylvania Civil War buff faces a felony charge for accidentally firing
a 2-pound cannonball through the wall
of his neighbor's home. Oops.
A Canadian man performed an amateur circumcision
on his four-year-old son on the
floor of the family kitchen. He has been found guilty of criminal negligence.
Woman chooses pet croc over her husband
JUST PLAIN WEIRD:
An Australian woman was given a choice by her husband: give up her pet crocodile
or give up her husband. She chose her pet crocodile
, Johnie, and filed for divorce.
Which has since been granted. Idiot?
A 75-year-old dead man sat decomposing
on his Marina del Rey balcony for
days because neighbors thought the body was part of a Halloween display.
A 22 year-old German man mooning at railway staff in a departing train got his trousers caught
in a carriage door and ended up
being dragged half naked along the platform, out of the station and onto the tracks.
So many idiots, so little space. Till next week, keep smiling.
