Tonight's Worst Person In The World winners were as follows: Director of National Intelligence, Mike McConnell gets the worse award, Bill O'Reilly of Fixed News gets the Worser and the winner and Worst Person honors went to comedian Rush Limbaugh for this insane statement earlier this week:

Limbaugh: “.....Democrats want to get us out of Iraq, but they can’t wait to get us into Darfur.” He continued: “There are two reasons. What color is the skin of the people in Darfur? It’s black. And who do the Democrats really need to keep voting for them? If they lose a significant percentage of this voting bloc, they’re in trouble.” A caller responded, “The black population,” to which Limbaugh said, “Right.”

John Amato: It's come to my attention that some local stations didn't carry Countdown. Taylor Marsh has a post on it.  An emailer says:

I contacted the news desk and the person there did not care that Countdown was not being carried and

stated the Steelers show was more important. I'm asking everyone to call 412-237-1100 and ask for the General Manager or email him at: gm@wpxi.com. There is no excuse for this but sadly that is the way it goes in Pittsburgh

most of the time.
