I couldn't decide who should get bumped off the TOP FIVE list so I decided to include both of them in a tie: Bill Frist and John Boehner the majority leaders of the Senate and House, respectively. This week, Fristy blamed the Democrats for the "Do-Nothing" Congress. Yes, the minority party is to blame for the Senate not doing anything. It's hard to get things done when you've got a 55-seat majority, I suppose. As for Boehner, he went out on Wednesday and actually tried pushing the old canard that Saddam really really was helping the 9/11 terrorists and that Iraq really really did have WMDs. "But, but, but what about all the evidence to the contrary?" I hypothetically ask the congressman. "Evidence? Boehner don't need no stinking evidence! " he replies in the third person.

JD Hayworth earned a spot a number four this week by taking a sip of the Cheney kool-aid when he said that to exercise our right to criticize the government is to aid the terrorists. Remember, according to the GOP, in order to protect America, we can no longer be Americans.

Today's GOP priorities were laid out for everyone to see as Colorado rep. Marilyn Musgrave stated that the most important issue facing this nation is terrorism and national security. Oh, wait, that's not right. She said the most important issue was the war in Iraq. Ooops, wrong again. Actually, according the Ms. Musgrave, the most important issue facing America is gay marriage. Yep. Your Republican Congress at work, folks. Take a bow.

George Felix Allen Jr. got himself two mentions this week as he cannot seem to not have controversy surrounding him this election season. Early in the week, Felix made the really dumb claim that he had never ever never used the "n-word" ever never in his entire life. And, or course, people are coming out of the woodwork to dispute that claim. Now, it appears that Felix has something of a penchant for spitting at women's feet. Yes, he spits. At women's feet. You cannot make this stuff up.

This week's number one just has to go to Fox News' Chris Wallace, who took on President Bill Clinton and lost. Badly. Wallace thought that he could actually come at President Clinton with the same old attacks that work so well on so many other Dems when they dare to come on the GOP network. Well, Wallace was really wrong because Mr. Clinton got right up in his grill, called him on it, then rationally explained why Wallace and his network of mouthpieces was totally and completely wrong. It was a real thing of beauty.

Here's the latest tally after six weeks:
George W. Bush - 17 points
George Felix Allen Jr. - 12 points
Joe Lieberman - 9 points
John McCain - 7 points
Donald Rumsfeld - 6 points
Dick Cheney - 6 points
Chris Wallace - 5 points
ABC - Path to 9/11 - 5 points
Geoff Davis - 4 points
Marilyn Musgrave - 3 points
Michelle Malkin - 3 points
Condoleeza Rice - 3 points
Ann Coulter - 3 points
JD Hayworth - 2 points
John Boehner - 2 points
Michael Savage - 2 points
Neil Cavuto - 2 points
Bill Frist - 1 point
Frank Gaffney - 1 point
Hugh Hewitt - 1 point

(Points are awarded based on five points for a first place finish, four points for second and so on. Points will be carried over from week to week.)
