I know, the title's redundant.

The bronze went to Mike Huckabee for appearing on televangelist Pat Robertson's TV show and saying that by virtue of his Theology degree, only he truly understood the nature of the war we're in with Islamofacism -- it's a theocratic war. The silver went to "comedian" Rush Limbaugh for mentioning a school by name on the air for allegedly choosing to post the names of conscientious objectors on a banner during a Veterans Day event, bringing on the wrath of his similarly clueless dittoheads -- the only problem is, the school had already decided against doing so. Finally, the top honors went to Tom Delay for drawing thunderous applause during a speech at Oxford University when he cluelessly warned if Hillary is elected president, the U.S. would end up with a health care system like England's, then made the outrageous claim that nobody in the U.S. is ever denied health care.
