Worst Person In The World awards on yesterday's Countdown went to GOP presidential hopeful, Fred Thompson, who got the bronze for thinking he knows more about Iran's nuclear weapons program than all 16 of our intelligence agencies. The silver went Willard "Mitt" Romney for slamming fellow candidate Mike Huckabee for "religious intolerance" after saying he wouldn't have a Muslim in his cabinet, and the gold went to Ferret Face the "Frank Burns of news," Bill O'Reilly. BillO used the words of former CIA agent John Kiriakou as proof that waterboarding works and should be a regular practice -- even though Kiriakou wasn't at the interrogation session, didn't actually see the waterboarding and can't say if the intelligence gleaned from it was actually credible.
