Maybe I'm just having a bad reading comprehension day, but that article is so unspeakably poorly written that it makes no fucking sense whatsoever.

I started to quote specifics just now, but I realized all I'd done was paste the full text in the comment box, so I stopped.

Mike Huckabee:
Sentence: Just as he's about to win the GOP nomination, a freak gust of wind catches Huckabee's excess skin and carries him out over the Atlantic, where he drifts for hours before God appears to him, tells him He's a Unitarian, and sends him to hell.

Despite the way these guys foam at the mouth over the most absurd minutiae (Nicole Richie, for crying out loud?), I get an occasional chuckle out of this thing each year. They could make an effort, though, to include people other than Bill O'Reilly and Lou Dobbs every single time. Yawn.

"I've just gone through so much in my life that pulling my top up just doesn't seem like that big a deal." Nicole Richie

We could all learn a lot from such a deep statement.

Their description of Bill Kristol is exactly right:

Charges: Bears the burlesque Cheshire grin of a sophist born with a large silver spoon jammed sideways in his mouth. A second generation neocon raised in the tradition of Straussian perception management and myth creation, Kristol is basically lying about everything -- always -- and he knows it. Whether at the helm of Rupert Murdoch's Weekly Standard, appearing on Murdoch's Fox News Channel, or co-founding the disastrous Project for a New American Century, Bill is arguably the most egregious media hawk of a generation. Seems to have suffered no ill impact to his career or prestige despite having been completely wrong about everything to do with Iraq and Iran, and actually laughs about it with obnoxious frequency.

Well, the site's swamped already. Americans just can't wait to find out who we hated this year (speaking for myself, I hope Thomas Friedman made the list again, and Tucker Carlson. Oh, that my loathing might have put them over that lofty bar).

Did Matt Taibbi have a hand in this one, or are all his links to the Beast severed?

36. Master Chief

Charges: Unquestioning cybernetic super soldier of Halo 3's futuristic virtual dystopia; lacks free will and a face. Feature article treating him as a cultural phenomenon in Time magazine marked a low point for both franchises. Stupid name.

Exhibit A: Joint-marketed with Mountain Dew "Game Fuel" in a major coup for diabetes industry.

Sentence: Stop loss, a tour in Iraq.
No, the real loathsome person is MasterCh1ef3n420420 who stands in the tower sniping me as I spawn and afterwards brags about how "most of his kills were no-scopes," and I go back trying to figure out how it is possible to have such reflexes using your thumbstick.

Well, they're right about one person, though they placed you too high on the list:

9. You

Charges: You believe in freedom of speech, until someone says something that offends you. You suddenly give a damn about border integrity, because the automated voice system at your pharmacy asked you to press 9 for Spanish. You cling to every scrap of bullshit you can find to support your ludicrous belief system, and reject all empirical evidence to the contrary. You know the difference between patriotism and nationalism -- it's nationalism when foreigners do it. You hate anyone who seems smarter than you. You care more about zygotes than actual people. You love to blame people for their misfortunes, even if it means screwing yourself over. You still think Republicans favor limited government. Your knowledge of politics and government are dwarfed by your concern for Britney Spears' children. You think buying Chinese goods stimulates our economy. You think you're going to get universal health care. You tolerate the phrase "enhanced interrogation techniques." You think the government is actually trying to improve education. You think watching CNN makes you smarter. You think two parties is enough. You can't spell. You think $9 trillion in debt is manageable. You believe in an afterlife for the sole reason that you don't want to die. You think lowering taxes raises revenue. You think the economy's doing well. You're an idiot.

Exhibit A: You couldn't get enough Anna Nicole Smith coverage.

Sentence: A gradual decline into abject poverty as you continue to vote against your own self-interest. Death by an easily treated disorder that your health insurance doesn't cover. You deserve it, chump.

This is the worst of the web.

I disagree, this is the worst America has had to offer the world for the past year or so, writing about it just brings it out into the open and makes people aware of it. And if you read closely, a lot of the awful things that are on this list can only have happened because too many people in the United States willfully ignore the things being done in our name.

This isn't the worst of the web, this is a depiction of the worst of ourselves, and it needs to be writ large and broadcast across the web to the world, if for no other reason, than to tell everyone that we know these fuckers exist, and not all of us support their antics.

Hell, I want pointed, incisive commentary like this every day, in the main stream media. I want statements like this to be the primary perspective the average American has of their politicians, because I want to go back to a time when we didn't trust those in power, and they had to really work to screw us over, rather than just having us roll over whenever they asked for it.

Sentence fragments that would have been better off in a bulleted list, yet are somehow long and disjointed enough to justify placing in paragraph form. The syntactical embodiment of attention-deficit disorder. The complete lack of structure. No verbs in some fragments.

A conscienceless, memo-drafting, loophole-crafting liar for hire, pushing for all the worst administration policies, including nixing habeas corpus, denying and then defending rendition, torture, political firings, and a ton of other evil stuff. He even visited a seriously ill and disoriented John Ashcroft at the hospital, attempting to coax him into reauthorizing a clearly illegal wiretapping program. The only Attorney General who ever could have made John Ashcroft a sympathetic character by contrast.

Stan gave the commencement speech when I graduated in May, supposedly to get him on the Board, to get him to donate some millions, or both.

It can be summarized as: "Hi, I'm Stan O'Neal, and I'm great. I work for Merrill Lynch, which is also great. Merrill Lynch is so great. Did you notice I'm Black, like the president of your school? We're both great because we've managed to become rich toolbags even though we're Black. So, in conclusion, Merrill Lynch is great and so am I. Yeah, I'm great.

What do you mean, Harlequin? You are number 9.

Yeah, I was bit worried about number nine, but the description didn't fit, and I'm not going to be back in America until 2008, so I figure that number 9 is referring to someone else who has the same pronoun as me. Er, you.

Maybe if I don't give a link to the list, they'll just have to take my word for it! :-)

I can't even imagine having sex with a chubby woman. She would be cute if she dropped 45 pounds. And I'm tired of marginally talented people like this being rewarded with so much fame and fortune simply because they appeal to the prols.


The anorexia police love to attack Nicole, but she is all kinds of sexy.



I don't believe you're really Zach Braff.

What did Master Chief ever do to you!? And his title isn't stupid; it's the highest enlisted rate in the Navy (and Coast Guard). For some reason they call him sir though. . . hmmm

Anyway, some of these people deserve it, but sometimes I feel I would be on the list (well, more than I already am) if they found out my politics.

True confession -- for years I have had a crush on "11. Harvey Levin," based on People's Court and CourtTV. I know it's wrong, I know TMZ is wrong, but I still heart him.

Nothing to confess to- the man is hot.

Sadly, Jonah Goldberg probably published his magnum opus Liberal Fascism too late in the year to make this list.

And no "serious" progressives seem willing to write a thoughtful review of his book. Poor guy gets no respect.

Glad to see the Beast getting some play. It can be one of the raunchiest papers around.
