Videogum lists the ten worst people of 2008. I heartily agree about Seth MacFarlane—Family Guy is a blight on our social landscape that has managed to coarsen further an already coarse, almost uncivilized generation—but surely most of the worst people aren’t in Hollywood, and I like M. Night Shyamalan. Elliott Spitzer and Governor Blogojevich belong on such a list. I’d suggest Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Mumbai terrorists, people firing rockets into Israel, and the idiots holding “Death to all Juice” signs at recent demonstrations. And, of course, Ethan Winner, for orchestrating the smear campaign against Sarah Palin, which lowered the already collapsed standards of political discourse by making reasonable people fear, baselessly, one of America’s most outstanding governors.
Who would you suggest?
