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 Sam Fox. He's the man nominated by President Bush as America's Ambassador to Belgium, who was found to have donated $50,000 to the slanderous anti-John Kerry "Swift Boat Vets for Truth," is no longer the President's nomination for Ambassador to Belgium.
The President today withdrew the nomination. Still to come: the Swift Boat Vets ad, blaming the Democrats for the nomination.

The Runner-up: Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut. He argued against a withdrawal timetable on the floor of the Senate, saying, "It is clear that for the first time in a long time, there is reason for cautious optimism about Iraq."

For the first time?! What about all those other times you've been so optimistic, telling us all about the great progress?

Like during the 2006 campaign.

But our winners: The Sports Information Department at the College of Southern Idaho. Its media guide for its women's softball team, presents answers to either/or questions from each of its players...
You know: Hamburger or Hot Dog... Mountains or Beaches... Vanilla or Chocolate...

"Shaven or Unshaven." Women's Softball team... Shaven or Unshaven... Must be referring to the bat barrels. Shaven or unshaven bat barrels. Shaven or unshaven...
The College of Southern Idaho, Sports Information Department is Wednesday's Worst Persons in the World!
