Besides adopting yet another slogan for his party, Bush makes the list solely on the basis of costing his party the mid-term elections. While the Democrats didn’t really field anyone new on any substantial issues, they did make the republicans cut and run from the President’s side and even that wasn’t enough to keep them from losing their seats in either house. Sorry, George, this one’s for you.
Dirty humor goes over well in the United States in most cases, but not when it’s racist… and not humor. Michael Richards, better known as Kramer, subjected two ‘hecklers’ to a rant of epic racial proportions in deciding to use slurs to attack the men. Directly afterward Richards went into damage control, finding every prominent black official and apologizing profusely. He even apologized on Letterman with Jerry Seinfeld supporting–the crowd had to be asked not to laugh.
Jew this, Jew that, Gibson’s drunken rant brought on more media coverage than just about anything else this year. Gibson went into immediate damage control, issuing apologies and denying that he is an anti-Semite. Nevertheless, he proved to be one of the largest nut jobs of 2006 and perhaps the last decade with his words. Hey, anyone looking forward to seeing Apocalypto?
There is truly no reason Tom Cruise shouldn’t be on this list, thus he makes the list by default. Not even fatherhood to could change his public image, as he’s dipped into even less of an approval rating than President Bush.
A summit to disprove the legitimacy of the Holocaust alone is enough to put the President of Iran on this list. Anyone who is capable of conceiving the notion that this is true is beyond idiocy and should be done away with in a cold dark basement somewhere in the desert or Arctic. Oh, never mind the terrorist ties, nuclear program and all of that other stuff.
In an age where freedom has been tossed around as a powerful term, it is unthinkable that a politician would suggest that we rework the first and possibly most cherished amendment in order to go route freedom. Gingrich more than implied that the government should be able to circumvent the amendment and do as they please to get what they want. It is completely unthinkable that a man would push such a notion and I personally thank Keith Olbermann for his words viciously attacking Gingrich.
If I did it, this is how I’d do it, not that I did it, but this is hypothetically speaking how I’d do it. Are you serious? Did this really actually get printed before it got canceled? Absolutely no one on earth, even Simpson himself, still believes that he did not kill Nicole Simpson. There simply cannot be any bigger idiot in the world than OJ Simpson, he got away with murder and yet he still is actually showing his face in public. Can’t we just bypass double jeopardy just once?
Limbaugh accused Michael J. Fox of exaggerating the effects of his disease and actually imitated him. He went on to call Fox shameless in what he had done. However, when proved utterly wrong and that he truly had not a clue what he was talking about, Limbaugh did what he should have and apologized. But nevertheless, he couldn’t escape making a monumental idiot of himself.
Personally, I didn’t know they made them this stupid anymore. An album that moved only 6,500 units in its first week and a divorce from the only thing that made you marginally relevant in the public eye makes K-Fed one of the largest idiots of the year. Having left a pregnant wife and a child in the dust, K-Fed decided to go for custody of his children with Spears. Hey, idiot, next time sign a larger pre-nup and try to take care of the children you decided to have.
It was almost a good year for Britney Spears; she was finally getting rid of K-Fed and was well on her way back into the warm embrace of the public. But then, Paris Hilton managed to get her claws around Ms. Spears and before you know it, the pop star’s Vagina was every where on the Internet for everyone to see. Before K-Fed had no chance of getting their children now apparently there’s a chance that neither one of them are fit to be a parent.
