After polling our readers earlier this week, we've come up with the winner of the First Annual Golden Crookies Award for the Year's Biggest Wingnut. And it really wasn't a contest:

Sarah Palin: 5738 (38%)

Sean Hannity: 2762 (18%)

Michelle Bachmann: 1969 (13%)

Bill Kristol: 1535 (10%)

Rush Limbaugh: 1089 (7%)

Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher: 808 (5%)

Bill O'Reilly: 781 (5%)

Mike Huckabee: 237 (2%)

Lou Dobbs: 179 (1%)

Pastor John Hagee: 144 (1%)

In honor of Palin's stunning runaway victory, herein are some of her greatest hits:
