Dregs of the Year Nominees (Commemorative “Harry Whittington Victim Self-Flagellation” Citation)

The NFL’s Baltimore Ravens definitely earn a dubious citation here for asking Janay Rice, spouse of former running back (and wife abuser) Ray Rice, to basically apologize for being hit – almost too contemptible for words.

Dregs of the Year Nominee (“Um, Um, Not So Good” Citation)

The unidentified San Francisco restaurant worker caught “tenderizing” meat here on a city sidewalk (would you like your botulism for here or to go?)

Do-Gooder of the Year Nominee

For the eighth consecutive year, wide receiver Andre Johnson of the Houston Texans treated 11 at-risk children from child protective services to a shopping spree at a local Toys R Us store here (better than an end-zone spike as far as I’m concerned – kudos)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Conservative Barbie doll Laura Ingraham for this (see, the whole “body camera” thing arose out of Ferguson as a response to police brutality and, actually, this is just a racist dog whistle on Ingraham’s part anyway…once again, I defy you to present to me an instance of another president in our nation’s history who has received treatment like this, mainly because of the color of his skin)

Dregs of the Year Nominees

The New York City grand jury that failed to indict Office Daniel Pantaleo here in the choking death of Eric Garner on a sidewalk, even though Garner’s death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner (we don’t have Bob McCulloch to blame for this one, people)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Repug Congressman Peter King, who basically blamed Eric Garner, choked to death by NYC cops, for his own demise due to obesity here (why does anyone still take this buffoon seriously, I wonder – definitely referring to King)

…and related to this…

Do-Gooder of the Year Nominee

Yes, the bar is set way, WAY low here, but when even Billo admits that Eric Garner didn’t deserve to die, then that’s shedding a light on the issue for sure…kudos to Falafel man for a change (here).

Billo
…on the other hand…

Dregs of the Year Nominee

And you just knew he would return to his utterly wretched form in short order, didn’t you (here, and he REALLY did so here).

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Pro football player Darnell Dockett of the Arizona Cardinals for commenting on Malia Obama’s body shape here – no, I’m not bugged because he’s making a derogatory comment about one of the Obama daughters per se, though that is pretty low…Dockett should keep his depraved opinions to himself because Malia Obama happens to be a minor

Do-Gooder of the Year Nominee

Florida Broward Circuit Judge Thomas Lynch, who ordered the city of Fort Lauderdale to stop arresting people for feeding the homeless here (sad that the ban was ever instituted in the first place – what country am I living in again? – but kudos to Judge Lynch for doing what needed to be done)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Dr. Thomas Pfeiffer, a licensed anesthesiologist from Red Hook, New York (I believe), who “choked a woman and forced her to swallow a pill that could cause an abortion, after she told him she was pregnant,” according to this story (actually, maybe “Inhuman Monster of the Year Nominee” might be more appropriate)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Former Phillie and Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, who was clocked at 100 MPH on the Capital Beltway, arrested and sentenced to 10 days in jail, as noted here (GOOD – I’ve driven that road plenty of times, and to say 100 MPH is a dangerous speed on the Beltway is an understatement…God knows how many people this nitwit could have killed…Werth is smart and cagey in some ways, but he’s also dumb as a bag of hammers in other ways, and this definitely falls into the latter category)

Dregs of the Year Nominee (Possibly The Most Shameful One Of The Bunch)

I can’t believe I actually have to include outgoing Dem Senator from Iowa (and I wonder why, exactly?) Tom Harkin on this list, but what else can you do when Harkin takes money allocated for Pell Grants and gives it to student loan contractors instead? Particularly since Harkin has built an otherwise commendable career in part on providing student loans for the under-privileged? (here)

Do-Gooder of the Year Nominees

American Giant for this (yeah, I know $89 is a lot for a hoodie, but kudos to them for trying to bring back manufacturing in THIS country…this citation probably could have been used last year also)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

The proprietor of Big Nate’s Mug Shots Pub in St. Joseph, Missouri, who sponsored a “a Michael Brown special” here, which would be 6 “shots” for $10 (the bar’s slogan is “Where sarcasm is always free” – I guess the stupidity is too…fortunately, they cancelled the event)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Beltway courtier media lackey (lackette?) Nia-Malika Henderson, for claiming that incoming Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mr. Elaine Chao is “the adult in the room” here (so many levels of stoo-pid behind that remark that it’s hard to get a handle on all of them – I never liked her even when K. O. interviewed her on “Countdown” awhile back, and I like her even less now)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Andrew Ross Sorkin, scribe exemplar on behalf of the One Percent, for attacking Elizabeth Warren here for speaking out against the nomination by Obama of Antonio Weiss for Under Secretary of Domestic Finance (yeah, that book of his about the ’08 crash was hilarious in its portrayal of Henry Paulson as somebody who apparently was blindsided by everything and an innocent bystander…pass some of what you’re smokin’ over to me, dude)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Laurence Tribe for this – hope he doesn’t have any trouble spending his 30 pieces of silver, as it were…another particularly disappointing selection

Do-Gooder of the Year Nominees

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen for this (good work for sure)…

Dregs of the Year Nominees

MO Dem Governor Jay Nixon and Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson for this (really?)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Returning to our beloved commonwealth, I give you MaryKate Blankenburg, guidance counselor for the Central Bucks West School District, who posted the following on Facebook (here, in response to the “I Can’t Breathe” protests in support of Eric Garner, choked to death by NYC police officer Daniel Pantaleo, who will not face charges…apparently the protests might have conflicted with a certain recreational activity somehow):

“If my child cannot get to the Eagles game due to protesters, I will personally SHOOT every one of them. You’ve been warned idiots!!”

Blankenburg has reportedly been suspended with pay while the incident is being investigated (wonder why she is still collecting a paycheck…if it had been most any other private sector employer, she’d be out the door and might not even be able to collect unemployment –not saying that policy should be changed, mind you, but maybe an exception every so often wouldn’t hurt).

Do-Gooder of the Year Nominee

Senator John McCain for this, someone who has a particular expertise with this subject that, fortunately for us, not many others have (kudos to him for speaking out)

The “Lily, Rosemary, Dino, Sammy, Toots Shor, And The Jack of Hearts” Citation Of The Year

As noted here, Bob Dylan plans to release a recording of Frank Sinatra tunes (or, in other words, It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes Trying To Figure Out What The Hell Happened To Dylan’s Voice To Cry)

Dregs of the Year Nominee

Repug U.S. House Rep Cynthia Lummis for this (I’m genuinely sorry for her loss, but let’s get a couple of things straight: 1) Her husband passed away in his sleep, and 2) If he needed to have a potentially-life-saving test done or a procedure performed and he was unsure about doing it because of “Obamacare”…well, I’m sorry, but that isn’t a good enough reason; get it done and settle the billing later…it’s actually pretty pitiful for her to make any kind of a connection between the ACA and her husband’s death mainly for those two reasons)

Dregs of the Year Nominees

The High Court of Hangin’ Judge JR strikes again – as noted here, they ruled that employees at an Amazon warehouse do not have to be paid for the time they spent waiting to be screened by security after their shifts, which can last as long as 25 minutes (on the other hand, the High Court gets a Do-Gooder citation for this)

Dregs of the Year Nominee (Fershtinkiner Macher Citation of the Year)

As noted here, Hosni Mubarak Walker sent out a Happy Hanukkah message along with other seasonal greetings and used the word “Molotov” instead of the actually correct form “Mozel Tov” (maybe he was hoping everyone had a “blow up” of a time…OK, so I’ve done better – there was also a reference to the “Democrat” Party; hey, this year was the chance to boot this clown, but the opportunity was wasted)

Do-Gooder of the Year Nominees

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Zeid Raad al-Hussein (U.N. High Commissioner For Human Rights) earn a nod for saying here that all senior U.S. officials and CIA agents who authorized or carried out torture like waterboarding as part of Dubya’s national security policy must be prosecuted. Of course, the Justice Department isn’t going to do that, and international prosecution would be difficult since the U.S. isn’t a member of the International Criminal Court (how con-vee-nient).

I’d give $20 to see one of those former Bushco bastards travel internationally and get arrested over this, maybe even tossed into the slam with some of those whom they subjected to torture (wonder what Deadeye Dick Cheney would do if he were waterboarded? Probably throw one last heart attack…I don’t wish that on him, I mean to emphasize – not calling for violence against anyone even though Number 43 and his minions regularly practiced that on others).

Dregs of the Year Nominees

Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin made the following disparaging comments about our chief executive in Email that recently came to light, as noted here

In the emails, published by BuzzFeed on Wednesday night, Pascal and Rudin discussed what movies President Barack Obama would probably count among his favorites. “‘Ride-Along,'” Rudin wrote. “I bet he likes Kevin Hart.” Other films with black casts that Pascal and Rudin presumed Obama would enjoy included “Django Unchained,” “12 Years A Slave,” “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” and “Think Like A Man Too.”

OMG, are you for real? No references to “bling,” gang-banging, Watermelons, fried chicken, out-of-wedlock births, “bitches and hos” and Section 8 housing (a big one in Northeast Philadelphia, where I came from)?

Hey, if you REALLY want to insult “B. Barry Bamz,” you gotta step it up, you two! And it should just be a given that you’ll call him some kind of Kenyan Marxist Socialist race-baiting wealth redistributor who has never shown us his “real” birth certificate! Hey, the Teahadists have raised the insult bar into the stratosphere – you’ve gotta do a lot better than to criticize him with movie choices.

And no, I’m not serious.

Dregs of the Year Nominees

However, I most definitely AM serious in noting that 57 alleged “Democrats” voted from the “Cromnibus” to keep the government funded through 2015, even though it rolls back some Dodd-Frank financial reform provisions, allows raiding of pension funds and ridiculously expands limits on campaign finance contributions (what karoli says and then some here).

Do-Gooder of the Year Nominee

Johnny Trinh, the man once hit in the head with a five-foot-long wooden stick punched in the face by actor Mark Wahlberg while Wahlberg was trying to steal two cases of beer, called for the actor to be pardoned here (more class than I’ve got, which I’m sorry to admit).

More later (maybe one post left, but probably two)…
