Keith Olbermann bestowed the rare honor of naming Pima County GOP Chairman Mike Shaw the Worst Person in the World for the second night in a row over his decision to raffle off a Glock handgun, the same kind of weapon that was used to shoot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ).
On Thursday night Olbermann called Shaw a 'Human-Shaped Pile of Feces'.
Hudson Valley Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-NY) was runner-up for her own foolishness, recounted here by the Times Herald-Record.
Only days after a record-setting storm destroyed her district, Rep. Nan Hayworth and her House colleagues threatened to withhold disaster money if lawmakers don't cut additional spending from the federal budget.
"We're facing a natural disaster in the middle of an economic disaster," Hayworth said Wednesday. "Certainly, the challenges we face with the national budget have not changed."
Hayworth, R-Mount Kisco, said she would only vote to replenish the federal disaster fund if new spending was offset by budget cuts. She said those cuts should come from "non-defense discretionary spending." Hayworth likened her position to a family skipping vacation if it was overwhelmed by bills.
"We have to control spending," she said. "There's no question about it."
Right. In times of disaster we all need to tighten our belts. Gotcha, Nan.
