The 2013 Equine Posterior Award: Vote For Your Favorite Right-Wing Extremist
Conservative leaders stooped to new lows of extremism and bigotry this year, not to mention their ridiculous endeavors such as the pointless but damaging government shutdown and the delusional War on Christmas.
Every year we “honor” our radical friends on the Far Right with the Equine Posterior Achievement Award, and you the reader get to decide who will take the grand prize.
Take a minute to vote here, and check out the nominees for 2013:
Sarah Palin: The reality TV star and former one-and-a-half-year governor has been pushing the War on Christmas hoax, even citing Thomas Jefferson in her crusade against the non-existent war.
Michele Bachmann: In her last term serving in the House, the Minnesota congresswoman charged that 9/11 was God's judgment, claimed that Obama is ushering in the End Times and asked God to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Ted Cruz: In addition to spearheading a disastrous government shutdown, Cruz once joked that the White House would kidnap him. Is it any wonder the junior senator from Texas has the biggest ego in Congress? (And that's saying something.)
Steve King: As the GOP's point person on xenophobic rhetoric, the Iowa congressman smeared immigrants as drug runners with "calves the size of cantaloupes" and called anyone who disagreed with him unpatriotic.
Glenn Beck: Leaving Fox News hasn’t stopped Beck from delivering his usual conspiracy theories, downright maniacal attacks on the Obamas, coming up with creepy stunts and dishing out bad parenting advice.
