On the 2010 Doltest of Dolts List

Columnist Peggy Noonan’s referral of Sarah Palin as a nincompoop may be my favorite line of the year. Nonetheless, 2010 (like any other year), provided an abundance of people that causes many of us to shake our heads. Granted, politicians could dominate the list with their I’ll-say-more-than-I’ll-do way of doing things, and much-of-want-I-say-is-an-exaggeration way talking, so I tried to minimize them.

Ladies and Gentlemen, A Frank Angle’s Doltest of the Dolts for 2010.

17) Philadelphia Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel – For not picking Joey Votto for the All-Star team, who was good enough to be the NL MVP. Ok, this one is personable, but my mouth is still sour!

16) Pat Robertson – For being able to talk, thus the odds are good he said something stupid in 2010.

15) Jesse James – Sandra Bullock … You cheated on Sandra Bullock … You lost Sandra Bullock! In the words of the great American orator Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon!”

14) Mel Gibson – Bugs Bunny speaks again.

13) Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin – For continually trying to stay in the news.

12) Charlie Sheen and Lindsey Lohan – For keeping themselves in the news. Get help and surround yourself with the right people!

11) BCS Executive Bill Hancock – He seems to think that because he tells us that the BCS doesn’t act as a cartel and is operating in the best interest of college football, we’ll believe it.

10) Tiger Woods – I’m a Tiger fan, but he screwed up more ways than one.

9) Former BP CEO Tony Hayward – Oh … he now has plenty of time to vacation on his yacht.

8] Rev Terry Jones and his Dove International Outreach Center for planning International Burn-A-Quran Day. At least they have been out of the news ever since.

7) Westboro Baptist – Rand McNally couldn’t help them find their way.

6) Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and the rest of the biased talk show buffoons. I’m not stupid and I can think on my own. Oh … and I neither watch or listen.

5) Bud Selig – He’s horrible and will be on my list as long as he’s MLB Commissioner.

4) Congressional Ethics Committees – Congressional ethics is a classic oxymoron. Then again, the public (who is angry at Congress, yet re-elected the majority incumbents) is getting what we asked for.

3) Christine O’Donnell – Let’s face it: she provided some of the year’s best quotes! Meanwhile, I hope that Dancing with the Stars does not try to resurrect her public image.

2) Party Leaders in Congress – This was the easiest way to include Boehner, McConnell, Pelosi, Reid, and their lieutenants on one line.

1) Sarah Palin – The nincompoop who keeps on giving.

  1. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Vintage, Frank, at his very best! Have to agree with you wholeheartedly regarding Cinncinati’s terrific first-baseman Joey Votto, and with Peggy Noonan’s apt moniker for Sarah Palin. Just wish, given all the attention she is garnering, it was more presidential than more fodder for Saturday Night Live skirts.

    Have a great week, Frank!


    • Al,
      2010 gave us many dolt moments … then again, and unfortunately, what year doesn’t. Votto’s omission was a crime. Meanwhile, the odds are good Sarah Palin will continue her gift of giving in 2011. Thanks for dropping by … and a good week to you too!


  2. On the plus side, Pat Robertson recently came out at least weakly in favor of reforming marijuana laws. So there’s that.

    What’s the deal with Bud Selig though? I gave up apying attention to baseball after the Phillies won the ’80 series. Or maybe it was after they lost the ’83 series.


    • Mr. Owhole,
      True on Pat Robertson … but he is quite prone to graffs. In terms of Bud Selig, as a longtime baseball fan, he simply has zero credibility to me. … and at $17 million per year, quite overpaid. Thanks for commenting.


    • Meesh,
      As for Lindsey, what a mess … gotta hope she can find stability in her life. She’s a rumored Dancing with the Stars candidate.

      We just watched the video, and as cat lovers, we can appreciate. Thanks for visiting and sharing!


  3. Frank,
    Lindsey is one of stars that will not help herself. Dancing With The Stars eh?

    It’s kind of sad, Lindsay Lohan once said she isn’t in rehab because she can’t afford it. http://www.starpulse.com/news/index.php/2010/10/28/peta_offers_to_sponsor_lindsay_lohans_

    I think she is in for, a serious dose of reality….she will soon be a statistic. At only twenty-four she best straighten out her act.

    Dancing With The Stars may be the answer Frank, perhaps she might discover how bad of shape she is in.


    • Meesh,
      Actually the one who spoke of the rumor also talked about how the show’s discipline could help her … so we’ll see. Besides, some viewers will tune (sad to say) to see if she crashes and burns. Thanks for the link.


    • Beeze,
      Many thanks … Heck, a case could be made for most, if not all, on the list for the top spot! Unfortunately, Westboro folks find a way to keep themselves in the news. Thanks for commenting.


    • Joe,
      Glad you enjoyed the list … except for the political partisans, it seems like a no-brainer to most people. Of course putting them in an order is tougher. Thanks for stopping by.
