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 Sean Hannity of Fox News Channel, establishing a new weekly segment called Enemy of the State. He selected Sean Penn as the first recipient.  OK, we’ll just skip the rip-off aspect of this, Sean.  If you want everyone to think of my show and my book when you launch into this segment, be my guest.  But to use that phrase, the one that Roman dictators used to apply before the Centurians would go and stab their enemies in the throat?
 
The runner up, Geraldo Rivera.  The Orlando Sentinel reporting that late last night he was interviewed by a radio station there and asked about how he revealed American troop locations during the invasion of Iraq nearly four years ago, whereupon he promptly launched into a tirade against me.  Claiming, as he did then, that NBC was blowing it out of proportion as revenge for his leaving the company, even though we were all happy to see him leave the company.  He called me a midget and a punk, and said he would be happy to fight me, and, "make a pizza" out of me.  Which is kind of funny, because I’m about seven inches taller than he is.  Plus, Geraldo, you should not give me a hard time.  I can still remember when you were a big deal.  Back when I was a kid. 

But the winner, Simon Garre, of Brian, Texas. The 20-year-old was arrested, accused of stabbing a man who was standing with him outside of a Kentmore Cabinets store in that city.  Mr. Garre and his victim had both applied for the same job there and Mr. Garre was evidently just trying to eliminate anybody standing in his way of making the final cut. 

Simon Garre, Monday's Worst Person in the World.
