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 John Acerra, principal at Nitschmann Middle School in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He's been arrested for selling Crystal Meth out of the Principal's Office. When police arrested him there, they reportedly found him naked, watching gay porn.
Our silver tonight goes to Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas, who actually said on the House floor that Tuesday's Dow Jones plummet was caused by Congressman Jack Murtha.
Rep. Gohmert said: "In two months of talking about raising taxes and more regulation and one committee chairman (that'd be Murtha) talking about how he's going to undermine the President's national security policy - two months! - We have this terrible damage to the stock market, to the economy."
And, you know, Congressman, Mr. Murtha also caused the crops to fail and the milk to curdle.
He's a witch! Burn him!
But our winner is Glenn Beck of CNN Headline News. Talking about the latest naked-photo scandal at American Idol, he asked a female guest to let him take nude photos of her. No, wait a minute. Not even he would do that.
Ask a woman, on television, to pose nude for him? Even hypothetically? No, sorry, I'd have to see that to believe it. Sorry, Glenn, I don't know how that got in this list--
Oh we have it? On tape? Seriously? Dina Sansing from "Us Weekly?" OK. Play it. Bravo, Sir! I mean, not even Billo would do his sexual harassing on camera! Glenn Beck of CNN Headline News, Thursday's Worst Person In The World!
