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.
