Top Ten Screwups
Captain Ed notes that Bernard Goldberg is coming out with a new book, 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (and Al Franken Is #37)
, and asks for your top ten
Here's my list, in no particular order:
Markos Moulitsas Zuniga
Justice David Souter
Hmmm, that was actually rather tough. I think the first four are screwing things up because they are all encouraging the far left in America to beleive that they're part of some mainstream movement with popular support. Kerry's probably marginal at this point, but he did not do Gore depression routine, so he retains some power. Remember, the moonbat conspiracy nuts still think he won the election last year.
Souter's on the list because if he'd been a libertarian conservative the way he seemed to be when nominated much of the Supreme Court nonsense of the last 10 years could have been avoided.
Sharpton's a gimme. Carter's obviously just an annoyance domestically, but his statements are damaging to the image of the US overseas. Brock and Soros are partners in an endeavor that seems to employ many of the idiot left, like Oliver Willis and Atrios.
I was tempted to include both of the Clintons but it's hard to argue what they are screwing up right now. You could certainly make an argument for rap musicians and record producers, but I don't know the scene well enough to decide who's the worst offender. Hollywood? Other than Moore I can't think of anybody influential enough to be included.
