On Thursday, Dec. 31, 2009, LOL will annouce it’s ASSHAT OF THE YEAR AWARD. 

 This post is dedicated to highlight our nominees and allow for some last minute nominations from the floor.  Add names or vote in the comments section below.

(Nominees are not in rank order)

 Nominee #1:  GLENN BECK

 Glenn Beck was one of our first nominees for this dubious award.  If you don’t remember this lie, just watch his show this week and surely you can find five more.  It isn’t Beck’s fault.  His network rewards this type of behavior, and he is just trying to stay competitive with Sean Hannity.  Now, the left does have their share of news media radicals (Ed Schultz and Keith Olberman come to mind); however, these two do not seem to use the over the top sensational lies that Mr. Beck has become so famous for.  Whether you vote for Beck or not, we have to leave you with this video link.

Nomination #2:  JAMES CARNEY (aka Moby in the Morning) 

This guy has bounced around more radio stations in the Atlanta area than I can count.  His first show in the Atlanta market was on KICKS 101.5.  It was cancelled after a high profile ratings war with then Atlanta favorite Rhubarb Jones.  He bounced around for awhile and has found a permanent gig on WNGC 106.1.  You would think that being fired for inappropriate comments and bad ratings would make a man wiser, but then there was this great soapbox moment back in June.

Nominee #3:  REPRESENTATIVE JOE WILSON (R – Backwoods, South Carolina) 

Known for the scream heard round the world, Mr. Wilson is my front runner for the asshat award.  Now, yes Democrats referred to Mr. Bush as several vile things, and people marched around the White House with signs that I would be embarrassed for my mother to see.  Democratic leaders even booed Mr. Bush during one of his speeches to Congress, but I have never and I mean never seen a more blatant show of disrespect and asshattery than Mr. Wilson demonstrated when he yelled “You Lied!” at President Obama during a joint session of Congress. 

Nominee #4:  SC STATE SENATOR DAVID THOMAS (R – Another Back Bencher, South Carolina) 

We have to be more careful of how we make comparisons.  I was appalled at members of the left claiming that Bush’s terrorist activities were on the level of Adolf Hitler, and the right calling Obama’s healthcare legislation tantamount to the Nazi concentration camps, but comparing the Iranian Protest to legislative stalling techniques is just asinine.  Mr. Thomas I hope your life is never in danger due to your political beliefs, but if it is, I promise I’ll make sure you do not have to use Twitter to defend yourself.

Nominee #5  SUE EVERHART

Don’t know who she is, well neither do the republican leaders of this great state.  She is the head of the Georgia GOP, but  during Saxby’s reelection campaign she was virtually cast to the side lines.  In an attempt to make herself relevant again, we get this lovely assertion that “Politics is war!” So you wanted to be relevant again?  Well, congratulations Ms. Sue Calhoun-Brooks-Davis Everhart you at least earned your triple hyphenated middle name.

Well, it is a weak field, but that is about all the GOParanoid had to offer this year.  Disagree! Add names in the comments section.  We will accept nominations until Wednesday night at 12:00 a.m.  Also, you can vote for this year’s nominees as well. 


Icarus, you cannot nominate yourself. 

Mills, Fetterman, Rogers sorry but you ain’t worthy of an award.  An asshat maybe, but not an award.
