Keith Olbermann has a book coming out later this year entitled, The Worst Person In the World: And 119 More Strong Contenders.
Sounds like a fun topic for a book, doesn't it? In fact, it sounded like so much fun that I decided to modify it a bit and turn it into a poll topic for the right side of the blogosphere. But, what definition should be used for the "worst American?" Well, since we're paying homage to Keith Olbermann here, it seemed fair to use his definition:
"It's a euphemism for somebody who's wrong and egregiously stupid and abusing their own position."
The only real caveat I gave to the bloggers being polled was that no serial killers or mass murderers were allowed. Everyone knows they're rotten people and there didn't seem to be a point to having them clutter up the list.So, Right Wing News emailed more than 225 right-of-center bloggers and asked them to send in an unranked list of 1-20 of the "worst" Americans, going by how Keith Olbermann defines the word.
I like the list and wanted to share it. My favorites?
Paris Hilton: A stupid, spoiled slut who has helped popularize her idiotic lifestyle.
Ted Rall: A bitter, spite filled ultra-lib, without the slightest shred of human decency.
Bill Clinton: A former President who disgraced the office and who has broken tradition by publicly trying to undermine the President, especially on foreign policy.
Jimmy Carter: One of the worst Presidents of the last hundred years. Completely incompetent, hopelessly naive, a strong supporter of various dictators, and he also has broken tradition by publicly trying to undermine the President, especially on foreign policy.
