One of the better little lists of the grotesqueries ruling our dystopic world. Not quite Dante’s Inferno, but not bad. I thought the guy (Ian Murphy) summed up my view of Obama (who probably is a bit high at number 14–he’s just not that important):
14) Barack Obama
Charges: Outside of his promise to never end the pointless war in Afghanistan, his word has the integrity of Halliburton cement. Whether it was a “robust” public option, real net neutrality, importing prescription drugs, barring lobbyists from serving in the White House, meaningful Wall Street reform or ending the Bush tax cuts for the disgustingly wealthy, our President caved like the Metrodome under the weight of a bloated oligarchy. Most irksome, he seemed dignified doing it.
Aggravating factor: Authorized the assassination of Americans accused of terrorism.
Sentence: Primary challenge from the Rent is 2 Damn High guy.
I’m sure I’m going to get no love from the Obamabots over this post but, you know, Takovo zhizn’. And do check out #1, which I got to say, has me pretty much pegged for what I am (i.e., the most loathsome figure of 2010). See the whole list at the Buffalo Beast.
