Fear and Loathing in Buffalo

The Buffalo alt-weekly the Buffalo Beast has released its annual 50 Most Loathsome Americans list. Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell is #1, and there are some real zingers. For instance:

- Tom Cruise is "extremely convincing when he plays an ambitious, superficial prick."

- Stephen Moore "actually snivels visibly."

- Lynndie England is "the most authentic trailer trash to enter the public spotlight since Anna Nicole."

- Michael Jackson is accused of "surgically transforming himself into a ghastly artificial creature, and then forcing himself on little boys."

- Anna Nicole Smith is "like some tawdry copy of a pre-death Marilyn Monroe without any Arthur Miller to suppress her."

- Zell Miller is "part Yosemite Sam and part Foghorn Leghorn."

- Joan Rivers is "the most ghastly face science has managed to create without the use of chemical weapons."

- Donald Trump "shares Saddam Husseinís compulsion to have gaudy structures named after himself."

And Donald Rumsfeld "carries himself in press conferences like a cranky grandfather who is sick of hearing his daughters whine about how he molested them every now and then."

Can't wait for the New York Press version...

Wow--what a screed. This is very amusing, but any such list that doesn't include Jimmy Carter, Michael Moore, or Patrick Leahy can't be taken seriously.

And no Paris Hilton? I actually thought that list was sanctimonious tripe, especially # 3: YOU. YOU do nothing but read People magazine. YOU don't organize and act. YOU don't spend your time the way I, a smarter person, think you should. Stuff it, creep.
