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, this is the first nonevent specific medal in the history of the award. We’re announcing he had deliberately deceived his own audience so he could continue to broadcast propaganda for the right wing. Comedian Rush Limbaugh becomes Admitted Liar Rush Limbaugh until further notice.
Runner up, Christopher Golden, alleged carjacker from Ohio. Police say he took at knifepoint an SUV away from a 79-year-old man named Charles Zeiger in Deltona, Florida. And knife still in hand he proceeded to ask his victim for directions to the highway. The man actually gave them to Mr. Golden, but Mr. Golden promptly crashed the SUV into a utility pole.
But our winner, Bill-O. Is he still on the air? Crying in his spilled electoral milk. Mr. O’Reilly has announced, “I think the Iraqis have got to step up and at least try to fight for their democracy instead of being the crazy country of Shia and Sunni. I don’t ever want to hear Shia and Sunni again.”
See, that was the problem at the time the war started, Bill-O. You had never heard of Shia and Sunni before, either.
