A Mother, an Ear-Biter, a Fool and a Priest: Which Is The Bigger Ass Clown?
1. Maliea Martin: The 20-year-old resident of Hannibal, Missouri, made headlines this week when she used her baby to shield police from shooting her ex-boyfriend with a Taser.
2. Brendon Delaney: The 25-year-old Delaney was charged this week with biting off the ear of another man during a fight in Highland, Illinois.
3. John William Yettaw: The Missouri "fool" who swam across a lake to gain entry uninvited into the home Myanmar's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Now Yettaw's action has Myanmar's military junta charging that Aung San Suu Kyi breached the terms of her house arrest.
4. Raymond Burke: Why not? The former St. Louis archbishop got the ball rolling last week when he demanded that Notre Dame cancel its invitation to President Barack Obama to deliver the commencement speech this weekend. Says Burke: "The proposed granting of an honorary doctorate at Notre Dame University to our president, who is so aggressively advancing an anti-life and anti-family agenda, is rightly the source of the greatest scandal."
