As many of you know, this column – in all its many incarnations – has for the most part highlighted the shameful escapades of Republicans and conservatives, with the odd Democratic and liberal exception. And with such frequent flyers as Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, et al, all distinguishing themselves, small wonder they have enjoyed such lavish attention. That is until this month.
For the first time since I started this column two years ago, all three finalists will be from the Left. I do not make this decision lightly. In deed, given Sarah Palin’s recent revision of old Paul Revere’s famous and historic ride, you could say it was the most difficult decision I’ve made in quite some time. But the truth is that this month’s winners – as painful as it is for me to admit – have earned the honors accorded them. How bad do you have to be to out-slime the likes of an Andrew Breitbart? Pretty bad, as you will soon see.
Without further ado, the envelope please.
