This is from the list of "The 50 Most Loathsome Americans of 2011" posted online by Ian Murphy on 1 February 2012. Most of it is on the mark and funny as hell. 49) Harold Camping Crimes: To hype his May 21st Judgment Day, the frog-voiced preaching mummy rented over 1,200 billboards, all of which Jesus totally missed. It wouldnât matter if this guy was just masturbating under his âEnd is Nighâ sandwich board, like a respectable doomsayer, but every time he âpredictsâ the rapture, many of his 200,000 benighted listeners max-out their credit cards for his $72 million Family Radio, and some lunatic slashes her childrenâs throats, so they wonât have to suffer through the tribulation. Smoking Gun: In this May 19th BEAST interview with Camping you can hear a vacuum cleaner â because nothing says you sincerely believe the END OF THE WORLD is two days away, and not an obvious scam to bilk your followers, like keeping up on housework. Sentence: Deathbed conversion to Scientology, posthumously baptized by Mormons, savings bequeathed to a charity chosen by Ricky Gervais. 48) Christopher Hitchens Crimes: First dead atheist to inspire such hagiographic dreck since Mother Teresa. Born British, died unmistakably American, having been so wooed by the âWar on Terrorâ that he was sworn in by then-DHS head Michael Chertoff. He was a pompous misogynist and warmonger who, above all else, loved the sound of his own voice. He palled around with comb-licking goon Paul Wolfowitz, advocated for Bushâs reelection, and clung to his scotch-soaked end that Saddam Hussein possessed WMDs. With his undoubtedly elegant prose, Hitch provided more support to Islamophobes than a Loweâs 2 x 4. Smoking Gun: âPrison conditions at Abu Ghraib have improved markedly and dramatically since the arrival of Coalition troops in Baghdad.â Sentence: Remembered accurately. 47) Tim Tebow Crimes: Throwing motion gives false hope of NFL stardom to children with MS. Inspired the most nauseating trend of the year in âTebowing.â Showered by idiots with feckless praise of leadership and morality because his game simply doesnât warrant the same. As a spokesperson for the hate group Focus on the Family, abstinence advocate, and known teammate kisser, Tebowâs likely just another self-loathing homosexual. And heâs sanctimonious as hell for a guy who works exclusively on the Sabbath. Smoking Gun: âFirst and foremost Iâd have to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.â Sentence: Raped by a Ben-Roethlisberger lookalike, forced to abort the baby. 46) Sam Brownback Crimes: #heblowsalot. When not attempting to destroy teenage girls on Twitter, the petulant Kansas Governor enjoys enacting anti-choice legislation, crushing arts programs through executive order, spending time with The Family, hating the gay, and taking moronic walks on the beach with Rick Perry and God. Smoking Gun: Heâs the Governor of Kansas. Sentence: Former Governor of Kansas. 45) Megyn Kelly Crimes: Looks so much like sheâs about to unhinge her jaw and toss back a few still-squealing rats that she lends plausibility to the ravings of David Ickes. Whether terrifying Flyover-Americans with the New Black Panther Party, or demonizing UC-Davis protesters, Kellyâs venom is designated solely for those outside of her income bracket and race. Decries âthe welfare state,â yet thinks the U.S. government should mandate paid maternity leave â because it could potentially one day affect her personally. Her entire ânewsâ career is based on exploiting the same myopic selfishness of Foxâs demographic of old white idiots who want to have sex with her. Smoking Gun: â[Pepper spray's] a food product, essentially.â Sentence: All meals prepared by Lt. John Pike. 43) Bill Adair Crimes: Oft scolded by conservatives for being too accurate, the Politifact editor sought to remedy its suspected bias with their aptly titled âLie of the Year,â which was that âRepublicans voted to end Medicare.â In the same way that calling a hamburger a cow is accurate, claiming that Paul Ryanâs Medicare-privatizing âPath to Prosperityâ would not end the program hangs on the thinnest of linguistic technicalities (an objectively far bigger lie is Ryanâs claim that his plan would âsave Medicareâ). Adairâs curious choice for Lie of the Year was based in part on an online poll, which was unduly influenced by Paul Ryan himself. So plagued by phony âbalance,â Politifact almost never calls out conservatives who deny evolution. Smoking Gun: In his response to the inevitable outcry, Adair defends his âobjective journalismâ by quoting two anecdotal strawmen. Sentence: Next time he orders a hamburger, a ketchup-coated steer comes charging out of the kitchen and tramples him. 41) Sarah Palin Crimes: Will not go away. So desperate for attention that she mounted the âOne Nationâ media circus bus tour/family vacation, trolling the press and stalking Republican candidates from state to state. Owes her entire rise to national prominence to the fact that Weekly Standard schmuck Bill Kristol met her on an Alaskan cruise and wanted to bang her. A quitter clinging to the last threads of relevance, Palinâs greatest contribution to society last year was to organize a protest against Barack Obamaâs âRoad to Ruinâ that suggested people drive to their local highways and pull off onto the shoulder ... for some reason. Smoking Gun: âHe who warned uh, the British that they werenât gonna be takinâ away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makinâ sure as heâs riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.â Sentence: Tapped by Romney for VP, inevitable loss, conciliatory hunting trip, tongue bitten off by wolves. 40) Anthony Weiner Crimes: Doesnât know how to properly Tweet, lie, tell the truth, or even philander. Weiner represents everything thatâs wrong with the Democratic Party: the craven inability to act and the pathetic ability to fold under pressure. With one errant keystroke, he bestowed upon Andrew Breitbart a wholly unfounded air of credibility. And, you know, obsessively tweeting cock-pics to women he didnât know. Smoking Gun: âYou know, I canât say with certitude.â Sentence: Andrew Breitbartâs wholly unfounded air of credibility. 38) Andrew Breitbart Crimes: A true propagandist for the ultra-wealthy, the manâs mouth shares both proximity and substantive resemblance to the Koch brothersâ assholes. After lucking into Weinergate and bizarrely co-opting the congressmanâs press conference, Andy spent the remainder of the year engaging in drunken spats with Sam Seder on Twitter, ineptly smearing the 99% movement, and sweating profusely like a disheveled pig on amphetamines. Smoking Gun: In a totally proportional response to being called a closet-case, he challenged a conservative Boston crowd to murder his detractors: âWe outnumber [liberals] and we have the guns!â Sentence: Treated for narcissistic personality disorder by Dr. Conrad Murray. 36) Frank Luntz Crimes: His only ideology being unbridled greed, Luntz would market kitten leukemia if the price was right. Naturally, the people with that kind of cash are typically global warming deniers, crooked politicians, and Wall Street scum. As we saw last year, Luntz spoke at a Republican Governors Association meeting in Florida, helping them craft an arsenal of disingenuous language to dampen the rhetorical resonance of Occupy Wall Street â like conflating âgovernment spendingâ with âwaste.â Luntz has been known to lie outright, as he did during the â08 primary season when he conducted focus groups in different states that featured the same âundecided voter.â Having been a coauthor of the â94 âContract with America,â heâs friends with Newt Gingrich, and unashamed of it. Smoking Gun: âIâm so scared of this anti-Wall Street effort. Iâm frightened to death.â Sentence: Shot in the head with a teargas canister.
