Starting things off at number five is House Majority Leader John Boehner, who represents a party that's so bereft of ideas that he actually said, "I listen to my Democratic friends and I wonder if they're more interested in protecting the terrorists than protecting the American people." It's just such a bald-faced smear that has nothing to do with anything, that it makes my blood boil. It illustrates the GOP's continuing sad attempts to somehow figure out a way to hold onto power come November and I think this sort of rhetoric will ultimately backfire. With less than two months to go, Boehner is already saying inflammatory stuff like this. I imagine that by Halloween he'll be saying that he's got pictures of Nancy Pelosi giving bin Laden a footrub.

At number four is Joe Lieberman, who gave us a double wammy of lies and attacks against his opponent, Ned Lamont. A couple of weeks back, Joe said that those who support Ned's call for a timetable on withdrawals from Iraq are supporting the terrorists. This week, former president Jimmy Carter said that sort of crap is a terrible thing to say, then Joe (through a mouthpiece) says that he never said anything like that, which of course he did. Then, Joe's communications director decided to take on Ned Lamont for volunteering at an inner city school. Wha? Yeah, he thinks that Lamont has inferred that he's a teacher at this school when Ned has always been clear that he was volunteering to help out and assisted in a business class, and to good reviews, according to the actual teacher of the course. If this is all Joe's camp has, then they're in more trouble than I thought.

Michelle Malkin makes her first appearance in the Five Worst list this week as she attacked a local library system because they chose to commemorate the 9/11 attacks in a way that she found objectionable. Namely, they were using the day to recognize the diversity of their community. For this, Malkin called them moonbats and other such nonsense. I guess in Malkin's world, if you're not marching with signs saying "KILL THE RAGHEADS" and locking Muslims up in internment camps, then you're not "celebrating" 9/11 correctly.

Appearing at number two is our old friend, George Felix Allen Jr. Much like Joe above, Felix gave us a double dose of campaign stupidity, first by relentlessly attacking his opponent Jim Webb for daring to use a sixteen-second clip of Ronald Reagan saying nice things about him. Then, in an effort to downplay the whole "macaca" debacle, he's been doing everything but appearing on a reunion show of The Jeffersons. To read Felix's website, one would assume that "some of his best friends are black."

And coming in at number one is DICK Cheney. He's had a busy week, what with his continuing attempts at convincing the American public that Saddam and Osama were BFF and then telling the American public that in order to defeat the "enemy" we have to stand in lockstep with Bush and never ever never ever ever question anything that he does because that would be helping the terrorists if we did. So basically, by exercising our Constitutional right to speak freely of our elected officials, we are aiding and abetting the terrorists. I said it in the original post, so I'll just repeat it here: Shorter DICK: In order to keep America safe, we cannot actually be Americans.
And this man is a heartbeat away from the presidency. The Founding Fathers weep.

Finally, I know that I went a whole week without a Bush post and given the week he's had, it seems almost obligatory that he should have been on here, mostly given his brazen politicization of 9/11 over the past week. So even though I didn't actually give him a post and he didn't make the FIVE WORST list, let's go ahead and give him three bonus points as an honorable mention. Sound good?

Here's the latest tally after four weeks:
George W. Bush - 14 points
Joe Lieberman - 9 points
George Felix Allen Jr. - 8 points
Dick Cheney 6 points
ABC - Path to 9/11 - 5 points
Donald Rumsfeld - 5 points
Michelle Malkin - 3 points
Condoleeza Rice - 3 points
Ann Coulter - 3 points
Neil Cavuto - 2 points
John McCain - 2 points
John Boehner - 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.)
