Countdown's Worst Persons with winner Rudy Giuliani for trashing President Obama's goal of reducing nuclear weapons:

Every time President Obama's goal of reducing -- and eventually, eliminating -- nuclear weapons comes to the fore, some on the right see grounds for mockery.

A year ago, for example, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, with a child-like tone, equated eliminating nuclear arsenals with missiles that "can shoot dandelions," and altering the one-dollar bill to encourage Americans to "turn their frowns upside down." Yesterday, Rudy Giuliani followed suit, trying to once again pretend he knows what he's talking about.
