Worst, indeed.

Countdown with Keith Olbermann: Worst Persons, 4/23/2008

Bronze goes to John Ashcroft for defending torture... again. This time, he was at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, which isn't far from where I grew up. Good to know that even out there in the boondocks, they can still stick it to these morons.
Silver goes to the pastor of the Jonesville church of God in Jonesville, SC, who put up a horridly offensive sign saying, "Obama - Osama Hummm Are They Brothers". The pastor claimed it was neither racial nor political, just that "It's because their names are similar" and "it's to realize what could happen if we get someone in (the Whiter House) who doesn't believe in Jesus Christ". Yeah, tell yourself that while you beat the drum over his pastor's comment, idiot.
The WORST PERSON? John McCain, for seeking the endorsement of anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic hate preacher John Hagee. This after Hagee's most recent defense and restatement of his comments about Katrina being "God's punishment" against New Orleans. And remember, McCain sought this man's endorsement.
