Bronze goes to Bill Kristol for (once again) making up facts not supported by reality in his attempt to smear Barack Obama and praise John McCain, his neocon brother-in-arms.

Comedian Rush Limbaugh gets the runner-up spot for disparaging a 10th grader's decade-old research paper as he tried to trash Barack Obama's astute observation that the current economic climate resembles the conditions that preceded the Great Depression.

And, of course, the coveted gold goes to convicted felon FOX News analyst Ollie North for having the sheer audacity to chide Barack Obama for suggesting we negotiate with Iran when he (North) was the principal architect in the Reagan-era scheme to illegally sell weapons to the Iranians.

Can you help us out?
