Who was the biggest wingnut of 2008?

Everybody's been compiling their Top 10 lists of 2008. We've decided to compile a list of the biggest right-wing nutcases of the year -- which, admittedly, could be a very long list indeed.

I consulted the C&L staff, and indeed there was not shortage of suggestions. The competition was fierce, but we finally pared it down to the list on the poll below.

Some absent names were especially notable -- George W. Bush and John Sydney McCain in particular. But the former just became increasingly irrelevant, and the latter was actually outdone by his surrounding cast of right-wing nutcases.

Vote today! We'll gather the data and announce the winner on New Year's Day.

More information on each of the contestants at the links below:

Sarah Palin

Bill Kristol

Michelle Bachmann

Pastor John Hagee

Sean Hannity

Lou Dobbs (more here)

Bill O'Reilly

Rush Limbaugh

Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher

Mike Huckabee
