The Buffalo Beast names ’em, lists their crimes and doles out punishment. Very funny – besides, a post that was not about economics was in order:
No. 50: Barack Obama – Exhibit A: “Yes we can” is the “Just do it” of politics.
Sentence: Presiding over the decline of an exhausted empire. (ok, ok, I admit it. This one is a bit about the economy, but only in passing…)
No. 43: You – Exhibit A: You’re more upset by Miley Cyrus’s glamour shots than the fact that you are a grown adult who is upset about Miley Cyrus.
Sentence: Invaded and occupied by Canada; all military units busy overseas without enough fuel to get back.
No. 26: Tila Tequila – Exhibit A: “I’m shooting a commercial for safe sex. How ironic. Because I don’t have that.”
No. 20: Joe the Plumber – Exhibit A: “Social Security is a joke…social security I’ve never believed in, don’t like it. I hate that it’s forced on me.”
Sentence: After blowing his fifteen minutes and all his money on coke and Thai hookers, an infirm, elderly Joe finds that social security actually is a joke, and is finally forced to snake toilets for a living.
No. 13: Joe Lieberman – Exhibit A: “In matters of war, we undermine presidential credibility at our nation’s peril.” “Sen. Obama doesn’t come to this debate with a lot of credibility.”
Sentence: Lieberman awakes to find himself in the body of an impoverished Iraqi living in a small apartment with 12 family members and no electricity. Shocked by this inexplicable turn of events, he stumbles outside and cries to God, looking up just in time for the white phosphorous to hit him in the face.
No. 4: George W. Bush – Exhibit A: “Goodbye from the world’s biggest polluter.”
Sentence: Detained in formaldehyde-laced FEMA trailer without charges or counsel, sodomized by Lynndie England, declared guilty by military tribunal, set adrift naked on a small ice floe in the Arctic.
