Well, vison, HRC is not my #1 pick, but she might be on my top ten list at the moment. The utter lack of grace or even good manners she has demonstrated this past week is quite revealing in its own way. But my top slots are still reserved for members of the current admin, they HAVE done irreparable harm to this country and the world.

Lack of good grace and manners is not a great thing. But if that's to put her on a top 50 list of most loathsome people in a country of 300 million citizens, I'd say it's something seriously wrong about that list. Lack of good manners can be annoying, but I'd personally reserve my list for people who have actually done some real harm.

Well, I did qualify it by stating "at the moment." She still has a big chance to redeem herself, and I also do not think HRC is any fool. :) She is 100% a political player, and she knows the rules to the game.

Hehe, true. And I very much like your "But my top slots are still reserved for members of the current admin, they HAVE done irreparable harm to this country and the world." ;)

The 2008 edition is in:
http://buffalobeast.com/134/50mostloathsome2008.html

I imagine it was pretty hard to narrow it down to 50 this time.

My favorite (only 43?)

Quote:
43. You

Charges: You think it’s your patriotic duty to spend money you don’t have on crap you don’t need. You think Hillary lost because of sexism, when it’s actually because she’s just a bad liar. You think Iraq is better off now than before we invaded, and don’t understand why they’re so ungrateful. You think Tim Russert was a great journalist. You’re hopping mad about an auto industry bailout that cost a squirt of piss compared to a Wall Street heist of galactic dimensions, due to a housing crash you somehow have blamed on minorities. It took you six years to figure out what a tool Bush is, but you think Obama will make it all better. You deem it hunky dory that we conduct national policy debates via 8-second clips from “The View.” You think God zapped humans into existence a few thousand years ago, although your appendix and wisdom teeth disagree. You like watching vicious assholes insult each other on TV. You support gun rights, because firing one gives you a chubby. You cuddle falsehoods and resent enlightenment. You think the fact that 43% of whites could stomach voting for an incredibly charismatic and eloquent light-skinned black guy who was raised by white people means racism is over. You think progressive taxation is socialism. 1 in 100 of you are in jail, and you think it should be more. You are shallow, inconsiderate, afraid, brand-conscious, sedentary, and totally self-obsessed. You are American.

Exhibit A: You’re more upset by Miley Cyrus’s glamour shots than the fact that you are a grown adult who is upset about Miley Cyrus.

Sentence: Invaded and occupied by Canada; all military units busy overseas without enough fuel to get back.

Quote:
42. O.J. Simpson

Charges: Jesus H. Christ, man. You literally get away with murder, to the astonishment of anyone capable of tying their own shoes. Then you write a book, coyly framed as “hypothetical,” in which you explain slicing and dicing your ex-wife and some poor shlub by describing her as a pain in the ass. You know the whole country is still gunning for you. And yet, you feel it sensible to try your luck one more time, because some guy in Vegas is selling a football you signed? Sure, O.J.’s sentence was too harsh to believe he wasn’t being punished for previous crimes of which he was acquitted, but did anyone think that wasn’t going to happen? O.J. could get 33 years for pissing on a tree, and he knew it, so at a minimum the whole “gimme my shit back” caper was unbelievably stupid, the product of a life in which consequences are things that happen to other people. At least now he can get to work on his next book, “If I was an idiot who got himself locked up for life after skating on a double homicide.”

Exhibit A: "I'm O.J. Simpson. How am I going to think that I'm going to rob somebody and get away with it? Besides, I thought what happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas."

Sentence: Ghost of Howard Cosell narrates the remainder of OJ’s life: “This man, once a man of greatness, now a man fallen, disgraced, disgusting, reduced to defecating in an unenclosed, seatless toilet, in close proximity to other convicted felons, the indignity apparent on his sad, rapidly aging face. What an incredibly pitiful story is his.”


Sounds fair to me.

It's that time of year again:
http://www.buffalobeast.com/?p=1645#more-1645

You have become substantially more loathsome over the last 12 months. Let's get it together, shall we?

it is too bad the three nominations from message board websites I submitted were not honored. :D They would have taken the ranking to new heights..... or depths depending on how you want to look at it.

Hmmph. More than half of those people I've never even heard of. They must be really digging this year.

Either that, or I've been living in a hole :scratch
