Top Idiot Of The Week: A Korean couple has earned the top spot in our Deadly Idiots category. They were so busy raising a virtual baby online, that they let their own baby starve to death.
Runner-Up: The University of Tennessee at Knoxville comes in a close second. This bastion of higher education has decided to award disgraced global warming alarmist Al Gore with an honorary degree. Adding insult to injury, they opined, “Vice President Gore’s career has been marked by visionary leadership, and his work has quite literally changed our planet for the better.” No specifics were given.
Honorable Mention: Northwestern University has, incredibly, invited disgraced former Gov. Blagojevich to lecture their students on ethics. “Ethics in Politics: An evening with Former Governor Rod Blagojevich” I kid you not.
Everybody’s favorite useful idiot, Sean Penn, has unloaded on critics of his recent mercy mission to Haiti. Penn hopes they all die of rectal cancer. People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals once again makes our list. PETA has called for Knut the polar bear, who shot to global stardom as a cub in 2007, to be castrated to avoid incest with his cousin.
A deputy sheriff in Tennessee accidentally locked himself in a jail cell. His solution? He tried to shoot his way out. Fortunately his superiors relieved him of duty.
Most Idiotic Statements: In a week chock full of idiotic statements, Nancy Pelosi takes the cake. As four fellow Dems bit the dust for ethics violations, she stated with a straight face, that she is running the most ethical Congress in history. Duh… Al Gore: “I, for one, genuinely wish that the climate crisis were an illusion.” If you believe that, there is a job awaiting you in the Obama administration.
Just Plain Stupid: An airline passenger ate his A Pounds 8,930 winning scratch card after he was told he could not claim the money immediately. That’ll show em. The American Psychiatric Assn. has proposed that out-of-control sexual appetites be included as a diagnosis in the next edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. How cool is that? With a stroke of a pen, acting like a slut will no longer be your fault. No word yet if this new disorder will be covered under Obama’s health bill. Sigh.
DANGEROUS IDIOTS: A drunken driver who was otherwise engaged in sexual activity with a woman in his truck plowed into a couple’s home Sunday morning. Oops.
Showing that idiocy is gender neutral, a 37 year-old woman in Florida caused a two-vehicle crash when she had her husband take the wheel from the passenger seat as she shaved her nether region. Sen. John Kerry called on the FDA to abolish a “discriminatory” law that bars homosexual men in the U.S. from donating blood, saying “not a single piece of scientific evidence supports the ban.” Hey John, can you spell AIDS?
So many idiots, so little space… ‘Til next week, keep your powder dry and don’t believe everything they tell you.
