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.

The Bronze for Tuesday goes to an unnamed German motorist following the GPS system in his Mercedes as he drove through Hamburg, but ignoring the big sign on the highway that said “closed for construction.”  He crashed through several barricades and ended up driving into a big pile of sand.  Nobody hurt.  Crash ahead in one quarter mile.

Our runner up, Bill O’Reilly, the tortured logic of a tortured soul.  “Now, the reason North Korea is causing trouble is that it wants to influence the November election.  This is not a partisan statement, it is a fact.”  An officially authorized Republican fact. 

Listen Bill-O, the Republicans don’t need Kim Jong Il’s help to screw up their chances in this election.  They’re doing a great job of it by themselves. 

But our winner, Michael Weiner-Savage, labeling Madeline Albright a “traitor” because the Clinton administration was in office when North Korea bought two nuclear reactors from a Western company in 2000.  Saying former Secretary Albright should be “tried for treason and when she’s found guilty she should be hung and when she is hung...” 

First, you’d look a little less like a mental patient if you remembered that it’s “hanged” not “hung.”  Secondly, Donald Rumsfeld was on the board of the company that got the contract for those nuclear reactors.  Mike, you’re going to make sure he gets “hung” too?

Michael Wiener-Savage is Tuesday's “Worst Person in the World.”
