Plumbing the depths of frivolous subjects
Posted by: McQ on Friday, July 14, 2006

Yes its frivolous. Yes it is one man's opinion. But let's face it, it is perfect blog fodder because it gives everyone a chance to give their opinion (or condemn another's) or tell us all how irrelevant this is or not. And sometimes you need a break from all the seriousness out there.

Anyway, with the world in flames, I give you Jessie Bonner of The Lufkin Daily News' "10 Most Hated Americans" list:

10. Pat Robertson
9. Tom Cruise
8. Ann Coulter
7. Hillary Clinton
6. The Dixie Chicks
5. George W. Bush
4. Ted Kennedy
3. Karl Rove
2. Cindy Sheehan
1. Dick Cheney

My first thought? Is Pat Robertson disliked enough to even rate making the list? Where's Michael Moore? In fact I had lots of thoughts - The Dixie Chicks? Tom Cruise? Cruise is a whack job but I don't "hate" him. What, no Britney Spears?

Bonner gives his reasoning in the article. And let's settle the "hated" bit right away so we're not arguing endlessly about whether it is appropriate or moral to "hate" someone. Let's change it to "most disliked". Anyone you'd prefer to see on the list? Off the list? Don't care?

I’m doing my dead-level best online.

I was too young to make Nixon’s enemies list, but there is still time to make a big-time that he never saw coming.

Onward.

So, Dick Cheney is the "most-hated" man in America?

In the late ’80’s, before becoming Bush I’s Sec of Def, he was everyone’s favorite senator from Wyoming! Now, in 2006, he’s the most Hated?

Bonner needs to stop drinking the spiked cool-aid, and take a cold shower.

(Pouncer, can you fit Jimma Cawwta in your list somewhere?)

Noam Chomsky
Amatai Etizoni
Nancy Pelosi
Dick Durbin
The entire cast of "Code Pink"

Per "steve", I’d add Jimmy Peanut, but like so many above, he’s just a deranged old geezer.

Karl Rove being on the list is a stretch, IMO. Sure, the leftist fever swamps on the Internet hate his guts. But if I polled my (not very politically involved) siblings and their children, I bet not a single one would even know who he is. There are daytime soap opera "villians" who would rate than Karl Rove higher on the "dislike" meter with regular Americans.

What about Dale Franks? Surely anyone who gets paid to play in the surf is deserving of our contempt.

I’d also add Jon Stewart, and the entire cast and crew of the Craig Kilborne-less The Daily Show.

Yeah, the Dixie Chicks can be stupid, but I love the Dixie chicks. Politics ain’t everythin’.

I much prefer pre-Natalie Chicks - and it has nothing to do with politics. I draw a huge line between bluegrass, where their roots are, and country, especially pop-country, where they are at now.

Let’s not forget Paris Hilton... She tops my list of hated "celebrities".

I agree, Robertson isn’t really enough of a force to be hated. Especially now that we have Fred Phelps, who all sides of the political spectrum can hate.

OK, I have a life to live, so I’ll just have to cut it short here at an arbitrary point.
