Sometimes you read something that is so absurd that you think that’s just as bad as it could possibly get. Then you go down a level and find out that they can top it. To borrow a phrase from Hindu mythology, it’s stupidity all the way down. Such is the case with Kelly Hollowell, intrepid…

Hans Zeiger Earns Robert O’Brien Trophy

Hans Zeiger, the Hillsdale College student and budding right wing pundit, is the latest winner of the Robert O’Brien Tropy (formerly the Idiot of the Month Award) for this frontal assault on the intellect published, naturally, on the Worldnutdaily. It seems Zeiger has his panties in a wad because his old high school newspaper contained…

Remember this month’s winner of the Robert O’Brien Trophy (formerly the Idiot of the Month Award), Gerald Allen? He’s the drooling halfwit state rep from Alabama who wants to ban all books and plays that have a gay character in them. Well guess what? He was at the White House this week. At the request…

The Real Idiot of the Month

I should have learned my lesson about naming an Idiot of the Month too early in the month. In America, just when you think you’ve found the bottom of the barrell, you discover that it’s barrells all the way down. Joseph Swank, move over. You’ve been out-moroned by Rep. Gerald Allen, a state Congressman from…

There seems to be this little gaggle of right wing webpages that all feature the same set of idiot columnists – gopusa.com, bushcountry.org, intellectualconservative.com. Add to that richardmullenax.com, named for one of the aforementioned columnists. You see the same people showing up on all of these sites – Joseph Swank, Mullenax, Jen Shroder and others…

Idiot of the Month: Joseph Farah

Not content with his rank hypocrisy in condemning Rev. Moon while simultaneously accepting awards from him and making money off his business associations with him, Joseph Farah has now added utter idiocy to the list of reasons to regard him as little more than a carnival barker on the political midway. Just look at this…

Jen Shroder and Biblical Curses

Our intrepid correspondent, Jen Shroder, is rapidly moving up the charts to become our Idiot of the Year, if not decade. This just has to be seen to be believed – this woman is calling on Christians to swear curses against “liberal judges” to make them blind: These actions are outrageous and worthy of curse.…

Tamara Wilhite Responds….kind of

In the last few months, I’ve given away numerous Idiot of the Week awards. This is the first time any recipient has ever replied. Mrs. Wilhite sent me an e-mail this evening. As we shall see, it is as badly reasoned and ridiculous as the commentary that won her this prestigious award in the first…

Idiot of the Week: Tamara Wilhite

Thanks to Timothy Sandefur for providing the link, and a thorough critique, of the absolutely mind-boggling stupidity contained in this essay by Tamara Wilhite, entitled Gay Marriage and Terrorism. It’s on a site called bushcountry.org that claims to be “promoting the ideals of conservatism”. Mrs. Wilhite says that by rejecting the Federal Marriage Amendment we…

Idiot of the Week: Bruce Walker

This week’s Idiot of the Week is Bruce Walker. It will come as no surprise that I found this cretin through a link from the WorldNutDaily. His article, published in the American Daily, is entitled The Case for America Divorcing Its Haters. In it, Mr. Walker tosses out the old “if you don’t love this…
