Freedom of Press is limited to those who own one - H.L. Mencken
I expect the next few days to be light blogging and light reading as the Americans in the audience go through the usual Thanksgiving tryptophan comas, family squabbles and Black Friday craziness. So we’ll start the long weekend with something fun. CNNSI has their list of the sports scene’s biggest turkeys, Infoworld has their picks from the tech universe.
So let’s get the ball rolling here. Advance and argue for your nominations for RTLC’s Biggest Turkey of 2007. I tend to favor giving Turkey awards to the silly and stupid rather than the criminal and dangerous. That’s why, despite her amazing ability to provide straw men to Right Wing blogs, Hillary is not in my list. I don’t find her funny.
But the award is wide open. It doesn’t have to be political. If there’s enough response, I’ll tally up the votes and the winner will be acknowledged as such in future posts like so:
Alberto “Turkey” Gonzalez testified from prison yesterday on the US Attorney scandal, claiming he didn’t remember serving in the Justice Department and had no idea who “Dick Cheney” was.
2007 Turkey Dennis Kucinich has brought clean energy technology here from his home planet
I have three nominations:
Alberto Gonzalez, whose performance in front of Congress was cringe-inducing and whose flaying of the Constitution was fear-inducing.
Nancy Pelosi. Jesus, what a dingbat. From trips to Syria to blaming Bush for her Congress doing, um ... man, what the hell have they done this year? I’m surprised this dim bulb dem doesn’t get more derision.
Hugo Chavez. The Original Latin King of Comedy has done everything from calling Bush the devil to being told to shut up by the King of Spain to having his ugly monument to Che destroyed. He’s a modern day Kruschev, only without the nuclear arsenal. It’s non-stop laughter with this dork.
Dishonorable Mentions: Britney, Bush, Osama bin Laden (Darken that beard in just five minutes!), OJ Simpson, Al Gore, the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, Notre Dame football, Nick Saban, Star Simpson (what *is* it with Simpsons these days), Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Moore, Hollywood producers and the RIAA.
It’s truly been a Year of the Turkey in this country. The inmates are not only running the asylum, they’re locking up the sane. Be sure you’re stocked up on food and ammunition.
And Happy Thanksgiving. May your gravy flow abundantly.
(The title of the post gives me an excuse to link to this piece of comedy gold.)
