Ass Clown of the Week: Radical Right-Wing Edition!
|Which ass gets the hat?|
So, let's oblige them with a special right-wing edition of Daily RFT's "Ass Clown of the Week." Continue on to read each nominee's credentials and cast your vote.
1. Cynthia Davis: A perennial Ass Clown candidate, the Republican state rep from O'Fallon made news twice this week. First for sponsoring a law that would extend concealed-carry into churches. Second for proposing another law that would require the terminally ill to be fed with feeding tubes even if they don't what them.
2. Jim Hoft: The conservative blogger behind Gateway Pundit seemed to get a perverse pleasure recently with fellatio pointers published in a local "liberal rag" of a student paper. Hoft also made news this week for spreading the erroneous report that Obama planned to ban recreational fishing.
3. Roy Blunt: The Missouri congressman making a bid for U.S. Senate said he was "honored" this week to be included in a list of the nation's most environmentally unfriendly legislators.
4. John Burns: The man behind Citizen's for Better Transit -- a group trying to kill a county tax hike for public transportation -- admitted this week that he's buddies with Tea Party pranksters James O'Keefe and Joseph Basel, who were arrested this year for attempting to hack a Louisiana senator's phone lines. Last November, Burns teamed with O'Keefe and Basel to create a communist gulag on Wash U's campus and sabotage a LGBT rally outside the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica.
