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 to Newt Gingrich, visiting us briefly in this dimension to blame the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina on a “failure of citizenship in the Ninth Ward where 22,000 people were so uneducated and so unprepared they literally couldn’t get out of the way of a hurricane.” Yes, Newt, all that education sure helped the Bush administration shine after the hurricane. 

The silver, comedian Rush Limbaugh, pointing out that since ancestors of Al Sharpton were slaves and ancestors of Senator Barack Obama were slave owners, quoting again: “Could we not say that if Obama wins the Democratic nomination and then wins the presidency, he will own Al Sharpton?” No, actually, we couldn’t say that.  But we could say that any lingering doubt about this is at an end, Rush Limbaugh is a racist. 

But the gold, of course, to Coultergeist.  Calling John Edwards that name, I mean, Annie, just because you’re more mannish looking, hell, you’re more mannish looking than every man on the planet. 

Coultergeist, today’s “Worst Person in the World”!
