And the Winner Is…

Yes, it’s that time again. The Poorman hands out the Golden Winger awards, and winner of the Palme d’Hair is…well I really don’t want to spoil it, except to say that I was pulling for Assrocket, I thought he clenched it with that "Bush is a genius" thing. So sad.

It was mostly domestic affair this year, but Matt over at 1115.org lets us know that there is serious competition springing up from across the seas. He nominates GWB’s good buddy Pervez Musharraf for "worst person of the year" for this quote:

You must understand the environment in Pakistan. (Rape) has become a money-making concern (for the victims). A lot of people say if you want to go abroad and get a visa for Canada or citizenship and be a millionaire, get yourself raped.

In a recorded interview. With the Washington Post. As Matt says, "that didn’t stop Musharraf from later trying to deny having said it."

He’s a comer, that one.
