COMMENTARY

Every night at 8 p.m. on MSNBC, Keith Olbermann awards his daily pick for "Worst Person in the World." Some contenders are lucky -- or unlucky --enough to be nominated more than once.

Bronze winner: Dennis Mitsubishi of Columbus, Ohio.  He reportedly prepared an ad for use on local radio in which it declared a “Jihad on high prices” with “Fatwah Fridays” complete with free rubber swords for the kiddies. Local radio stations showing remarkable sensitivity considering it cost them money, have refused to air the spots.

Runner up: Senator Rick “Man on Dog” Santorum of Pennsylvania participated in a local cable TV debate this afternoon with Green Party Senate hopeful, Carl Romanelli. A little detail left out of the equation, this morning a judge ruled Romanelli was 9,000 signatures short of the number needed to put him on the ballot.  By the time the debate stated, he was no longer a candidate. The rationale for going on with the debate, according to a representative of the local cable outfit, Mr. Romanelli he was “already in the studio.” 

But our winner-- Bill-O. Asked by “Newsweek,” if you had to spend an afternoon with Keith Olbermann, Al Franken, or Frank Rich, whom would you pick?  He has answered: “I wouldn’t choose any of them, there’s nothing that could make me engage any of those people.”  Like on the field at Yankee Stadium a week ago last Saturday when you kept running away from me? 

Here, kitty, kitty, kitty. 

Bill O’Reilly, Monday’s “Worst Person in the World.”
