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 goes to Alvin Dean, arrested for speeding around a parking lot in Stock Island, Florida with a suspended license, while carrying drugs, and the parking lot was at the county jail. 

I’m going to go out on a limb here, but I’m thinking somewhere deep in his subconscious, Mr. Dean might have wanted to get caught. 

Our runners up are Houston-based landscapers, Garden Guy, who not only informed a prospective customer that the “Need to tell you that we cannot meet with you because we choose not to work for homosexuals,” but they also expressed their homophobia inn e-mail.  The recipients sent it to friends, and if it hasn’t shown up in your inbox, it will.  A co-owner says the firm is sorry and “We meant no hate.”  Sad part is, she probably thinks they didn’t.

But the gold tonight goes to FOX News.  Wow, are we kicking them when they’re down?  You bet your ass!

After all that Bill-O nonsense about the attack on Christmas last year and then it turned out FOX was selling Bill O’Reilly holiday ornaments instead of Bill O’Reilly Christmas ornaments.  Guess what?  The invitations are out for the 2006 News Corp FOX holiday party, and Christmas party, holiday party.  Guess Bill-O can’t attend. 

Do you think that was the idea? 

Those damned secular progressives at FOX and News Corp., Friday’s “Worst Persons in the World.”
