The Infrequently Annual G.T. Awards

It's indeed been an interesting year, and since it's time for year-end honors,
 after a short hiatus we're again proud to drag out and present: 

Diogenes' 2nd 4th ...The Annual Golden Turd Awards.

The Soon Coveted Golden Turd Award
We haven't awarded The Annual GT awards for a while now, but after the past year we find this semi-distinguish honor ripe for the times. 2018 is finally in the books and despite the sniveling media's gleeful prognostications of disaster befalling the nation, the country survived the predicted apocalypse, otherwise known as the Trump presidency. We’re all still here although more people are employed and more people are keeping more of their hard-earned money. But that is not good enough for some.  The votes are tallied and we present our pick of those we really wish would be swept away to a far away galaxy and used for alien medical experiments - 2018's top obnoxious leftist/social justice vermin and recipients of the soon again to be coveted DMF Golden Turd Award.  

The Dan Rather Award for “Excellence” in Media:
Ladies and Gentlemen, We have a tie!
Fredo Cuomo and Don Lemon

These are two of the most obnoxious back to back on-air news personalities. Whether it is the sissified SJW pontificating from Lemon or the smarminess of 'Cuomo the Younger', they literally make one’s toes cramp up with their silly banter. According to Lemon, Trump could cure cancer tomorrow and it would be an indication of his white nationalistic tendencies, or the work of Russians. Then again, nobody really watches their drivel given CNN’s quickly tanking ratings.  
The Joe Biden Public Orator Award:
Alexandria Ocashew-Cortex

Allie from the Bronx (but raised in an upscale suburb)should be no surprise she is more than worthy of a GTA when Cornell University opened an exhibit of her footwear. She may be pleasant on the eyes, but harsh on the ears. Considering she won a race in which a sea slug running as a Democrat would have won, the outsized publicity afforded this member of Mensa (sarcasm intended) proves one thing: Boston University did a terrible job of educating this dolt. Fortunately, the recently knighted “future of the Democratic Party” will be around for the next two years providing ample fodder for ridicule. Perhaps, that is for the best. And to those who do not believe the opposition should be ridiculed, a big, sloppy raspberry to you! Pbfllltttt!!!! 

The Stuck on Stupid Award:
Alyssa Milano 

She managed to get her face and Twitter feed into just about everything this year. She even managed to get a seat at the Kavanaugh conformation circus at the invitation of Diane Feinstein. Whether it was gun control, feminism, MeToo… you name it, Milano was there ready with a comment or Tweet. Unfortunately, she proved herself to be a worldclass jackass with every comment and Tweet. She needs to concentrate on an acting class and lay off the social justice in 2019.

The “It Looked Better on Paper” Award: 
Michael Moore

Remember when the Michigan Land Whale's latest borefest of a documentary was supposed to bring down Trump once and for all? Remember, he suggested that the faithful surround the Capitol building, preventing Senators from entering and voting for Kavanaugh? As for his movie, he forgot one important thing: people have to see it first. They didn't. As for the second item, well… Kavanaugh was confirmed and sits on the Court. On the heals of a 2017 year ending bomb of a theater 'one-man-show', this makes Moore 0 for 2 in 2018. However, he does win hands down the award for most rotund jerk, although Bette Midler draggin' around a duffel bag full of double cream Oreos is giving him a run for the money in that category.

The Alec Baldwin Public Relations Award: 
Hillary Clinton

The hack queen of Chappaqua just will not go away. She is  still lashing out about losing the election in 2016 and just cannot seem to find an excuse she can stick with these days. Was it the Russians? Was it sexist voters? Was it that damn Electoral College thing? She needs to take a cue from the Evil Queen in Snow White and look in the mirror at why she lost. Her touted tour with her husband, serial groper and cigar aficionado Bill, was met with more empty seats than filled. That should tell her something.

The Helen Thomas Crazyass Anti-Semite Award:
The Leaders of the basket full of 'anti-penile /anti-white'
bigots known as "The Women's March." 

Nuff' Said! 

Outstanding Achievement in Celebrity Trump Derangement Syndrome: 
Group Award

The bearded and deranged Jim Carrey, a drunken Chelsea Handler, Kathy Griffith (yes..she’s still around), Steven Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Myers (was this guy ever funny?), Meat Head Reiner and bloated Rosie O’Donnell, among others. Throw in the entire cast of Saturday Night Live (save, perhaps, Keenan Thompson) and others out there to numerous to name..... like those two dickheads with British accents on Comedy Central and that really ugly Canadian chick on.....

The Amy Winehouse Lifetime Achievement Award:
David Hogg

More than a year after Parkland, Hogg remains in the headlines. He’s like a case of herpes that won’t go away. This pompadoured punk pimp of the gun control movement displayed his hypocrisy by hiring ARMED guards for his loser book tour. Well, you know…those crazy NRA members might want to take him out. It should be remembered that this kid came to prominence by hiding in a closet, cell phone in hand broadcasting on YouTube as students and faculty were being shot in another building. It is sort of verboten to poke fun at these survivors of a school shooting tragedy, but Hogg invites the scorn heaped upon him. Please…just go to Harvard and get that non-existent degree in Political Science and shut the hell up.

Diogenes' Infrequently Annual Golden Turd Awards

The Soon Coveted DMF Golden Turd Award

Long time readers will remember from years past the DMF "Golden Turd Awards". We haven't honored anyone with a GT Award for a number of years now because of Climate Change.  But after the past year or two we find this semi-distinguish honor long over due and ripe for the times.

This is by no means a complete list. Worthy nominees fall out of the trees every time the wind blows. The field is very fertile.

So with a little help of a few choice excerpts from the WFB, we present our picks of some of those we really wish would be swept away to a far away galaxy and used for alien medical experiments - 2022's obnoxious leftist/social justice vermin and recipients of the soon again to be the coveted DMF Golden Turd Award.  

The “It Looked Better on Paper” Award:
Mayor Pete Buttgig

While only 14th in the line of succession, depressingly just below HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge, Mayor Pete (He/Him) receives more campaign surrogate requests than Vice President Kamala Harris. (for obvious reasons I think we can all agree) Lil' Pete, known for nothing other than overseeing the filling of potholes and is the hip midwestern millennial with the cute hubby that liberal media types were swooning over, he has now joined the pack in rear ending our democracy.

But some in the media are now reluctant to play Dutch Rudder with Mayor Pete, seeing the hierarchy of victimhood is a complicated thing these days.  Mayor Pete's major accomplishments so far are declaring highways as racist and preaching climate change. But, in his defense, he's a master at breaking down complex issues, like highways for fishes, and his enthusiasm for this remarkable feat of engineering is infectious.

These days Pete sends strongly worded letters and wags his finger at people who know much more than he does. 

The Dan Rather Award for “Excellence” in Media:
Jeffrey Toobin

How could we not mention former CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who is very good at being not good at legal analysis. Toobin has over the years acquired a love of publicly stepping on rakes.  Paid “analysts” for the network, all of whom have a very inflated sense of self-worth, are always firing away with some of their best material. In Tobbins latest case, it was during the infamous Zoom discussion segment on CNN.  Let's just say he took things in hand and gave it his all, and leave right there. 

The Helen Thomas Crazyass Anti-Semite Award:
Kanye West or What Ever His Name

Every since the Kardashian Girls took over their famous father's vocation of getting black men off, many a negro has fallen from grace and ruined a career in their hands. The latest is Kanye West, who's cheese has obviously slide off his cracker after getting kicked to the curb by Kim. Not known if that brought on the anti-Semite crap he spews, but now he just comes off as an idiot savant, but all idiot.

The Amy Winehouse Lifetime Achievement Award:
Liz Cheney

9pm - Liz walks in........flicks the light switch........which sends an echoing click through her empty room. The silence is so loud, her heels on the floor send ripples out across the hardwood, bouncing off the far wall and colliding back on themselves. She opens the fridge and pours a large tumbler of wine and sits down kicking her shoes off........then guzzles the whole glass. She gets up and sulks toward the shower, carrying the bottle with her....stopping to kick the wall and mumble something about Lincoln.

Democrat and the sycophant media admiration for her is directly proportional to her disdain for DJT. Otherwise, to them, she's no better than your average hillbilly from Bugtussle.  
The 500 Pound Gorilla in the Room Award:
The Twitter Files
Please, tell me again who the real threat to Democracy is??

 Outstanding Over Achievement in Illegal Alien Human Interest Journalism Award

Alfonzo worked his tail off to get to the United States. He left his native Venezuela in the heat of summer, and through a series of long bus rides and onerous walks, he made it to Texas. But Alfonzo never really set foot in Texas. The second he arrived, the Texans threw him on a bus, and three days later he was in New York City’s Port Authority. He had just $130 in his pocket, nowhere to go, and nothing to do. Surrounded by filth and homelessness, you have to imagine he was wondering whether it was all worth it. But he was in the land of opportunity now, and opportunity immediately presented itself. Alfonzo was approached by a woman who wanted to spend the day with him.

That’s right. Merely five minutes after Alfonzo touched ground, a woman was asking him out on a date—and better yet, she was paying! Now sure, she was a reporter and was only taking Alfonzo out to interview him.  But she was also really nice to him. So when the reporter messaged Alfonzo to see whether he found a place to stay that night, our hero saw an opening. He responded in the most American way possible. With a picture of his penis.

Alfonzo’s X-Rated Hail Mary didn’t work. The reporter, a former Washington Free Beacon intern did write about her day with Alfonzo, ensuring that his ballsy move would live forever.

The Free Beacon exclusively obtained the image, but have opted to redact it for the safety of readers. 

Being an American is about taking risks and shooting your shot, even when the odds are stacked against you. The reporter says Alfonzo’s still trying, sending her pictures on a regular basis. See WFB for further developments. 

The 14:59 Award:
Jan 6th committee

Step right this way to see Chairman 'Primetime Bennie' and his select committee's professionally produced Kabuki Theater company, complete with very very select choice tasty tidbits of only narrative supporting witness testimony, with video and still images projected on the big screen for your Inquisition viewing pleasure, they said.

Nuke you a TV dinner & grab a beer and join Bennie, Liz, Pencil Neck, Zoe, Cryin' Adam, lil' Jamie and the rest of the pips at their nasty best as they go all out with their Hollywood produced dramatic performance worthy of an Emmy.  

But early on the committee had a tough enough time competing for an audience with "The Days of Our Lives" and reruns of 'Jeopardy' before preempting the cackling hens of "THE VIEW' which threw many wine-soaked suburban housewife Biden voters into a tizzy, or absolute orgasm depending on their consumption.

But later, Bless their Hearts, their main audience dwindled down to  mainly liberal 'blue check' pundits, over excitable soft skull MSNBC conspiracy freaks, and late night comedy writers. Their 15 minutes are over now.

We all know this was not about a riot, but about the total destruction of one man. 

The Beta Male of the Year Award:
Keith Olbermann*

We chose to recognize Beta Male Keith for speaking his truth after years of suffering in silence. Olbermann was understandably disgusted after watching his sort of attractive ex-lover, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur, bully her husband into getting a vasectomy and turning it into a feminist publicity stunt. He had to speak out.

He went on to describe how Tur, his live-in girlfriend from 2006 to 2009, exploited his professional success to advance her own career. Female sociopaths often behave this way toward their victims. It is commonly known as "reverse grooming," "ambition grinding," "C-suite slopjousting," or simply "pulling a Kamala."

Olbermann explained how Tur continued to exert coercive control over him long after the relationship ended. He paid her rent for a year after she moved out so she could stay in New York. He paid off her student loans. He introduced her to all the right people. He got her booked on shows. He edited "nearly every one" of her scripts for MSNBC, sometimes rewriting them from scratch. He contributed intellectual research for her book about Donald Trump.

At long last, Olbermann stood up for himself. She asked him to write the entire book for her, and he refused.

And few would argue that Keith's courage in that moment was commensurate to that of the American boys who stormed the beaches on D-Day.  We already knew Katy Tur was a unattractive talentless dimwit. MSNBC wouldn't have hired her otherwise. We applaud his staggering bravery, his willingness to face down his demon.

Keith now lives in obscurity, yelling at people about Trump on the tweeter and scaring his cats.   

The Turdapalooza of the Year Award:
Martha's Vineyard Border Defense Forces*

In the wee hours of  September 14, the residents of Martha's Vineyard—home to former president Barky Obama's $18 million waterfront mansion were confronted with invasion, an illegal immigration crisis of a magnitude never dreamed by the island elite.  Approximately 50 illegal aliens arrived by bus on the island at the behest of Gov. Ron DeSantis, who was simply trying to help bring diversity to the island while helping the illegals pursue the American Dream in one of the country's wealthiest enclaves.

The residents responded with Trumpian aplomb, calling in the National Guard to prevent the illegals from looting celebrity beach houses and defecating in their heated pools. They enlisted media allies to denounce DeSantis as "inhumane."

We're inclined to agree. One of the primary benefits of being rich enough to own property on Martha's Vineyard is never having to interact with a poor person who isn't on staff. Forcing the Obamas and other left-wing oligarchs to coexist with third-world peasants is an affront to humanity.

Within 48 hours, the illegals were evicted from the island and the crisis resolved. Inhabitants congratulated themselves for promptly expelling the intruders and ensuring their island paradise would remain unsullied by riffraff.  Well done, libs. Well done!

The Newsman Dan Award Confirms Honorable Journalism Is Pretty Much Dead

The University of Texas at Austin’s Moody College of Communication announced Wednesday the Dan Rather “Medals for News and Guts” awards.  Considering the 2004 “fake but accurate” scandal involving former CBS News anchor’s fake news “reporting” on George W. Bush’s National Guard service, you’d think no journalism school worth its salt would have the gall to actually create awards in his honor. But they did.
"The medals, to be awarded annually, further Rather’s goal of supporting and defending excellence in journalism by recognizing those journalists who defy overwhelming odds to report on important stories — no matter the size of their newsrooms."
I'll wait while you laugh.
Of course this is not the first award in honor of Newsman Dan. Diogenes'Middle Finger created way back when "The Dan Rather Award for “Excellence in Media" as part of our weighty, semi-renowned  Infrequently Annual Golden Turd Awards.

The Real Threat To Democracy is a Prevaricating & Dishonest Media. And there is nothing honorable about it these days. But I have sometime found it entertaining to listen to hypocritical, lying shit-bags pretend to take the high ground and argue from position of morality and goodness. I think we all know someone like that. Rather’s career came to an embarrassing end when he relentlessly pushed lies and the fake news story about George W. Bush that he still claims is true.

Since being booted from the anchor chair at CBS for propagating the fake news, Rather has been slowly circling the media drain, bouncing around various liberal cable news network outlets including a multiple-year stint with Mark Cuban’s HDNet that no one has heard of either.

What's the Frequency Kenneth??

The 2nd Annual G.T. Awards

It's indeed been an interesting year, and since it's time 
for year-end honors, we're proud to present: 
Diogenes' 2nd Annual Golden Turd Awards.

The soon to be highly coveted G.T.
So without further ado.....envelopes please.   

The “It Looked Better on Paper” Award:
Obama/Biden 2008 had some success with this same concept when it was known as FightTheSmears. The 2011 version, however, has been met with the one thing the Obama campaign hadn't anticipated: mockery. Conservatives and independents have had a field day “reporting” themselves and others on AttackWatch to the point no one but the die-hards take it seriously.

The Amy Winehouse Lifetime Achievement Award:
Arianna Huffington.
Take a struggling joke of an online service, combine it with a rich joke of a website editor, and what do you get? An epic fail. But at least Huffington came away with a ton of money for being ineffective and ham-fisted in her management. Way to be a credit to your gender!

The Dan Rather Award for “Excellence” in Media:
Ladies and Gentlemen, We have a tie!

*Ed Schultz.
Over the past two years, "Special Ed" Schultz has repeatedly put his foot in his mouth, apparently to prevent the truth from getting out. What has gotten out from Schultz is a steady string of ill-advised comments, out and out lies, and insane jealousy against conservatives in the media. Anger management classes would be more helpful to Schultz than giving him a daily and nightly forum from which to preach to an ever-dwindling audience.
*The Right Reverend Al Sharpton
Well, what else can we say. MSNBC's affirmative action commentator's teleprompter skills and semi-lucid thought processes leave most of his audience of the basement rated program going WTF is he doing on TV?  Congratulations to MSNBC for sweeping this award category.

Democrats to Watch Award:
Any Democrat up for reelection in 2012.
From Obama/Biden 2012 on down to the city dog catcher, every Democrat is going to be scrutinized by the electorate. Why they're the ones to watch is to see how many are willing to be seen with the President and Vice President on the campaign trail. If they shun Obama and Biden, it doesn't bode well for the reelection chances.

The Joe Biden Public Orator Award:
The Crisco Kid - Debbie Wasserman-Schultz
From vapid Congresswoman who says the most stupid and unbelievable things to garner attention to…vapid DNC Chair who says the most stupid and unbelievable things to garner attention. Wasserman-Schultz makes Howard Dean's leadership look credible.

Republican to Forget Award:
John Boehner.
Over the past year, coal mines have caved in less frequently than the Speaker of the House has. As we move into the next Congressional session, there may be a movement afoot to have Boehner removed as Speaker, and I wouldn't cry any tears if it were successful. Boehner might, but then again he is the weepy type.

The Alec Baldwin Public Relations Award:
Alec Baldwin
It was unanimous!

The Black Hole of Obscurity Award:
Keith Olbermann
After embarrassing their sister network, NBC News, the overstuffed, arrogant and combative Keith (Bathtub Boy) Olbermann got canned by MSNBC.  Olbermann's pompous, and sometime unhinged smug world-class a**hole form of presentation were more than NBC and Comcast executives could take. After debuting to promising ratings on Al Gore's Current cable network in late June, Olbermann who is reported to make $10 million a year at Current ,  has never done better than its debut week on Gore's hard-to-find cable network.

Underreported Story Award:
The Cause Celebre
We honor the numerous Hollywood celebrities and musicians who jumped on the OWS bandwagon supporting the protest against the very banks that hold their millions and finance their boorish  projects. My Middle Finger salutes you all. Here is just one example.  

The 500 Pound Gorilla in the Room Award:
Scandals within the Obama Administration. 
Although President Obama has been touted as one of the smartest Presidents we've ever had *cough*, his Administration has been plagued by scandals, ranging from the relatively minor (Van Jones) to the more serious (Operation Fast and Furious). And let's not forget Solyndra. Far from being a right wing conspiracy, these scandals amount to rank incompetence, serious malfeasance, or both, and they're not going away anytime soon.

Missed Opportunity Award:
Republicans sticking up for black conservatives under fire. This past year, we've seen black Republicans, such as Herman Cain and Allen West, get clobbered in the media and the Democrats for various things. Yet, one group has been conspicuously absent when this has happened: the Republican Party. With Republicans being painted as racist for decades, this past year was a golden opportunity to turn that around and make Democrats and their pals in the media look like hypocrites. Instead, they sat on their hands. Way to bust those stereotypes!

The Whistle Pass the Grave Yard Award:
OWS Oakland.
After one of the largest comings out against big banks, where does OWS Oakland open up an account? Wells Fargo. Way to stick it to The Man, kids!

The Padded Resume Award:
Chelsea Clinton getting a job with NBC News.
Of course, she earned that gig because she did that…wait, it must have been that piece she wrote for…no, wait, it was because she went to college to study...okay, it's because she's a Clinton.

The 14:59 Award:
All things Kardashian.
When Kim Kardashian’s wedding lasted as long as a bad sitcom and had as many laughs, it’s clear the entire Kardashian 15 minutes of fame can't expire soon enough.

The Stuck on Stupid Award:
Eric Holder.
Barney Fife was a better law enforcement officer than Eric Holder is. Holder's record as Attorney General has been rife with inconsistency, incompetence, and illegality. And that's just Operation Fast and Furious!

The With Friends Like These Award:
The Obama Administration's treatment of Israel. Although it’s safe to say President Obama and Israel may not see eye-to-eye on a lot of issues, it's also safe to say the President's not exactly a friend of Israel. Whether its the ill-conceived pre-1967 borders for Israel as a starting point to Middle East peace or the frequent anti-Israel sentiment coming from Administration officials from Obama on down, it’s clear Israel doesn't need any more friends like Obama.

The G.T. Photo Journalism Award of the Year:
Anthony Wiener
Oh how the mighty have fallen. After the verbose asshat New York congressman started sending out lude pictures of his undersized man parts to numerous people, then trying like a Kennedy to weasel out of it, he managed to give conservative bloggers a wealth of comic material unlike anyone this year.  Thank You again,Tony!

The Turdapalooza of the Year Award:
The Political Left
The Left wants to expand the number of people who can vote to include the homeless, ex-convicts, and illegal immigrants. A part of this effort includes making it as easy as possible for said potential voters to vote. What’s a major stumbling block to that effort? Requiring those silly little details like proving you’re an actual voter with a real address and that you look like the person you claim to be. So, when states do things to curtail that effort, the Left gets mad and decides to go after those states. And who needs a lot of help to get reelected and has the power to make it tough for states to enact these laws? Why, it's President Obama! Funny how that works out, isn't it?


Thank You Larwyn for the Linkage!

The First Annual G.T. Awards

It's indeed been an interesting year, and since it's time 
for year-end honors, we're proud to present: 
Diogenes' First Annual Golden Turd Awards.
The soon to be highly coveted G.T.

So without further ado.....envelopes please.   
The Padded Resume Award:
Barack Obama.
The more we see him try to be Presidential, the more we see how little actual experience he brings to the table. From “Hope” and “Change” to “Hope we can change Presidents soon.” 

The Flash in the Pan Award:  
Barack Obama’s global presence. 
Since his election, Obama has been touted as a departure from George W. Bush’s “cowboy diplomacy,” which would (according to his followers) bring about America’s return to dignified status in the world community. Of course, that isn’t what happened. World leaders treat Obama as badly, if not worse, than they treated Bush. Even our allies have a hard time taking Obama seriously. A stark contrast to the fawning media coverage of Obama’s European trip when he was running for President, to be sure. 
The Stuck on Stupid Award:
Ladies and Gentlemen, We have a tie!
Alan Grayson. (D-Fla.) 
Take a smug Congressman, add a Leftist mean streak to beat the band, and throw in a tone-deaf approach to the electorate…and you’d have a pale imitation of Alan Grayson. He may have been the darling of Leftist radio and TV shows, but he forgot to consider what the electorate wanted him to do and it cost him his job. At least he’ll have a future on MSNBC. 
Anthony Weiner (D-NY).
With a virtual one man war against Glenn Beck and Goldline, Weiner has shown himself to be arrogant, dismissive of any opinion that doesn’t match his own, and completely in over his head against anyone with a lick of sense. In other words, Democrats have a new Alan Grayson to replace the original after he got booted in the midterm elections for…well, for acting like Weiner is now. At least in Anthony’s case, his last name is pretty accurate for the kind of man he is. 

The Anna Nicole Smith Lifetime Achievement Award:
Christine O’Donnell. 
From cute-as-a-button spoiler in Delaware to cute-as-a-button buffoon, all in the span of a few months. In retrospect, it seems she never quite understood the media environment that came after her and continues to make Joe Biden-sized gaffes at the most inopportune times. And with rumors surrounding her lack of financial acumen (read: potential misappropriation of funds), O’Donnell has certainly set back women in politics significantly. 

The Dan Rather Award for “Excellence” in Media:
Rick Sanchez.  
The former CNN anchor made quite an impact this year, mainly because of his ham-fisted buffoonery. He lost his job at CNN because he said Jews run the media, as evidenced by Jon Stewart. Of course, Stewart caused a stir by pointing out just how vapid Sanchez was and then laughing about it on “The Daily Show.” Here’s a clue for you, Rick. Maybe the reason you were mocked for being such a moron…is because you’re a moron. And now, you’re an unemployed moron because you let your ego get in the way of doing your job. Congratulations, Rick. You’ve earned this award.

The “It Looked Better on Paper” Award: 
Any time the government gets involved in health care, the results usually don’t turn out that well (case in point: Medicare). Now, thanks to Obamacare, we’ll all get the same attention to swift, quality customer service in health care that we get at the DMV. And when you get to the bottom of it, Obamacare really doesn’t do anything to address the problems in the health care arena, but does a lot to enrich the very people Obama and his Democrat allies were demonizing throughout the debate over Obamacare. 

Underreported Story of the Year Award:  
The Obama Administration’s bungling of the Gulf Coast oil spill. 
It’s no secret (except to those who still worship Obama) the President lacks certain leadership skills, not the least of which being knowing when to lead. The Gulf Coast oil spill was a ready-made issue he could have used to showcase his leadership, but instead he let others take care of it for him, and they blew it. Sending lawyers and Homeland Security personnel to the Gulf Coast before sending down the EPA? Monumentally dumb. Blaming BP? Dumber still. The photo ops in lieu of actual policy? Even dumber. Pushing for a moratorium of offshore oil drilling? The mother of all stupidity. For you Leftists who think Michael Brown was a disaster for the Bush Administration, he was competent compared to the multiple missteps by the Obama Administration to address the Gulf Coast oil spill. 

Unreported Story of the Year Award:  
The overuse of the race card.
The Left has never been scared to play the race card whenever it was useful to their agenda. This year, anything became an excuse to use the race card. Obama getting criticized? It's because of racism. People opposing the Ground Zero mosque? It’s because of racism. The TEA Party movement gaining favor with the American people? It’s because of racism. And the more they use it, the less effective it became. 

Democrat to Forget Award:  
Nancy Pelosi.
From the first woman to be Speaker of the House to being the first woman to be Speaker of the House who oversaw the wholesale slaughter of her party in a midterm election. Nancy, here’s a clue for you. Maybe the reason you’ll no longer be Speaker of the House come January is because you suck as a leader.

Democrat to Watch Award:  
Harry Reid. 
After retaining his Senate seat and his party retaining control of the Senate, Reid is in a unique position: the only name-brand Democrat with any kind of political clout. President Obama hasn’t used the bully pulpit to bully anyone stronger than BP, and Nancy Pelosi has been relegated to a leadership position with the minority party in the House. It may not help him overcome gridlock, but watching Reid come away from the 2010 elections in the position he’s in now will be great fun indeed. 

Independents” to Forget Award:  
The “No Labels” movement."  
The great irony of the “No Labels” rally recently was they lamented partisanship…while being partisan attack dogs. You guys are about as independent as Michael Moore, but at least you’re as full of crap as he is. 

Missed Opportunity Award:  
 For the second year in a row, Republicans completely botched the TEA Party situation. Political operatives on the Right started acting and sounding like Leftists when it came to the TEA Party's influence on the 2010 elections. Instead of taking their concerns seriously, Republicans treated them like lost children needing to be taken home (i.e. back to the GOP voting ranks). They just don't get it. There wouldn't be a need for the TEA Party if Republicans acted like, well, Republicans. Until Republicans get this concept, watch for more missed opportunities with the TEA Party. 

The Helen Thomas Crazyass Anti-Semite Award:  
Helen Thomas
It was unanimous! 

 Congratulation To All of This Years Winners!
