A no-brainer‘s Villain of the Year is GWB. He’ll easily hold on to that tiara in 2006 at this rate.

I’m sure you didn’t have to skip a beat on who was #2.

…and the rest (w/links to Blend posts):

3. Pat Robertson
4. The Governator
5. Spokane Mayor Jim “Wild” West
6. Mitt “the sh*t” Romney
7. O’Lielly
8. Fiji — why this tropical paradise? Here’s why.

Several years ago, a gay couple was found murdered in Fiji. This spring, at the height of tourist season, an Australian tourist was jailed for gay sex in Fiji, where homosexual acts are illegal.

According to the Fiji Times, Magistrate Syed Muhktar Shah accused the couple of taking part in “shameful acts,” adding that their crime was “something so disgusting that it would make any decent person vomit.”

Person of the Year, to end on a positive note, was Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero. Spain became the third country in the world to allow same-sex couples to marry on his watch. He faced some serious flack from the Catholic church, but held firm in his support.

“I will never understand those who proclaim love as the foundation of life, while denying so radically protection, understanding and affection to our neighbors, our friends, our relatives, our colleagues.”
