On 2011 Dolts of the Year

Have you ever wonder what the news would be like if there were no reports about stupid people? Or at least without stupid things done by people who should know better?

Last year I start the Doltest of the Dolts Award, so hey – might as well make it a tradition. Since politicians could easily dominate this, I have tried to limit their presence, which is not easy here or in real life).

Ladies and gentlemen – A Frank Angle’s “Doltest of the Dolts Awards” for 2011.

17) The Republican Presidential candidates for doing what they can to push moderates to the other party

16) Pat Robertson – Odds are good that he said something stupid this year

15) Terry Jones – Yep, the hate pastor from Florida was in the news a lot first quarter

14) Sarah Palin – Top-ranked last year, but less time in front of the camera lowers her rating, but she still is a nincompoop (One of my fav posts ever)

13) Lindsey Lohan – Miss Train Wreck

12) John Boehner and Eric Cantor (politics aside) for not attending the Arizona service after the January shooting because one of them should have been there

11) A group of state governors for misreading the will of the people (No, I did not vote for Ohio’s John Kasich)

10) Bud Selig – The only yearly question is where on this list will the MLB Commissioner be

9) Hank Williams – For his hated

8] Charlie Sheen – Mr. Train Wreck

7) James Harrison – The Steelers linebacker who intentionally tries to hurt players, and then laughs

6) College Presidents for saying they care about student athletes yet change conferences to chase money

5) Politicians who are pathetic examples of noble leaders: Take your pick from Anthony Weiner, Charlie Rangel, Arnold Schwarzenegger, John Ensign, and others for making other lowly politicians look good

4) Harold Camping – The rapture king was hoping for a higher rating

3) Donald Trump for making a mockery of the importance and dignity of being able to live in the White House

2) The chain-of-command at Penn State University and Florida A&M University for dropping the buck

1) The Congress of the United States of America – Anyone needing an explanation, here’s your sign

On Post-Rapture Monday

Given the scheduled big event this weekend, I figure all of us were raptured to the next level (as in Mario Brothers) – thus we waiting to see the next obstacle.

While conversing with both of my pastors Sunday morning, I informed them that this was my final day of worship at the church. Seeing that they were a bit confused, thought I’d milk it a bit more by telling them that it is obvious that I wasn’t taken on Saturday, thus this church has been leading me down the wrong path. As the light bulb finally went off, one quipped, “Good luck at finding a church that was successful and still has members” … and we laughed

In the spirit of all the press time he received, all the memorabilia sold, and all the sad stories that one can muster,  here’s a classic 9-second clip from Jurassic Park for Harold Camping, his prediction, and your Monday Morning Entertainment. Have a good week.
