Worlds Worst: Mindless GOP Wingnuts Edition

Great lineup from Wednesday's Worst Person.

Bronze goes to NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly from seeking to implement the incredibly draconian "Operation Sentinel," which aims to track every single vehicle entering the island of Manhattan.

Silver goes to World Class wingnut Rep. Michelle Bachman for spouting some of her "we don't need Pelosi to save the planet because Jesus already did" nonsense.

And, finally, gold goes to aspiring wingnut Ed Tinsley, who's running for Congress in NM, for abandoning all shame and asking his opponent why he wants to kill his two nephews.

At a debate with the Democratic nominee, Tinsley has two nephews serving in Iraq. He spoke of them. Quote, how could I call my two nephews over there right now and tell them I‘m running against a guy that will cut your throat, that will cut the bottom out of your funding?

I don‘t know, Mr Tinsley, maybe the same way you can talk about how you could conjure up the image of your own kin getting their throats cut just to score points in a political campaign. To its credit, the crowd booed so vigorously the rest of Mr. Tinsley‘s exploitation of his nephews could not be heard.

Transcript below the fold.

But first time for COUNTDOWN‘s number two story, tonight‘s worst persons in the world, not including Rush Limbaugh.

The bronze to Commissioner Ray Kelly in the New York Police Department, announcing plans to heighten security around the rebuilt World Trade Center when it opens presumably in 2010. There would be only five entrances to the entire area. Drivers and pedestrians would have to pass through armed check points. Buses and trucks would have to go to an underground bomb screening area. And every vehicle entering Manhattan and its license plate would be photographed. But it‘s not an over-reaction and it won‘t hamper the area returning to, quote, normal.

Commissioner, Mayor Bloomberg, I know you guys intend the best here, but I‘m sorry, if you go through with this Draconian plan, that will mean that the tip of the Island of Manhattan, anyway, there the terrorists will have won.

The silver, the elected representative you‘d least like to be the lawyer for at a sanity hearing, Congresswoman Michelle Bachman, who represents a district evidently populated by the inattentive in Minnesota. She did an interview with a right-wing religious website about the Republicans‘ gimmick to demand a vote on their gimmick to increase offshore oil drilling, so it can drop the price of gas ten years from now maybe. Nancy Pelosi, says Congresswoman Bachman, is, quote, committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has just said, she‘s just trying to save the planet. We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago. They saved the planet. We didn‘t need Nancy Pelosi to do that.

I don‘t know who you mean, Congresswoman. I would guess that you‘re talking about Jesus. But since you act like you think you‘re Jesus, I‘m just assuming you‘re referring to somebody else.

Our winner tonight, Ed Tinsley, the Republican nominee for New Mexico‘s second congressional district. At a debate with the Democratic nominee, Tinsley has two nephews serving in Iraq. He spoke of them. Quote, how could I call my two nephews over there right now and tell them I‘m running against a guy that will cut your throat, that will cut the bottom out of your funding?
