  • The 2011 Douche Bag Of The Year Award 145 comments
    Nov 16, 2011 8:38 PM
    Where in the hell has the time gone?

    We've had Spring in the Middle East and the occupations of our cities, and Michelle Obama has taken fabulous vacations around the globe that most of us can only dream about.

    Where to begin?

    Who is most deserving?

    Why am I so pissed off all the time?

    Why are so many total douche bags getting richer and richer at the expense of ordinary fuckers such as myself?

    Why is John Corzine not being perp walked to a squad car in Lower Manhatten?

    Why is the departing head of Fannie Mae getting 4 million dollars for one year of begging Barney Frank for cash? OK, that's unfair, Barney probably requires a buttload of "Frank" tending to get tax payer dollars to slosh forth.

    So, who does stand above the rest of the assholes that occupy Wall Street and Pennsylvania Avenue?

    Who deserves the coveted Douche Bag Of The Year award?

    I leave it to you my minions.

    Some asshole, or assholette, has disturbed you and brought you to the edge of insanity, at least once this year, so much so, that you are chomping at the bridle to unleash your pissed off fury.

    Well, goddamnit, let the games begin. Submit your wretched entries here. The winner will be declared on New Years Day 2012. Provided we are all still here at such time.

    Unless, of course, some Super DB supercedes premature DB ejaculations.

     

    Then, any votes counted will go toward the new designated DB.

     

    Thumbs ups will decide the outcome and much glory and riches will follow the victor.

  • I nominate Eric Holder. He hasn't stolen our money but has allowed all these other douche bags to continue unabated. Our pursuit of happiness, dreams and financial security diminishes daily as he allows this to continue.

     

    He has also stolen our liberty through inaction and direct actions that have stolen the very life of at least one hard working American border agent. He continues to hide facts and disallow justice as if he alone determines justice in America.

     

    We expect that those that guard the hen house should never conspire with the foxes but obviously Eric Holder takes the cake as the thieves run rampant in and out of the hen house stealing all the golden eggs of hard working Americans with him holding the door for them. If true justice ever returns to America we will see him doing a perp walk some day for his failings, deceit, lies, damn lies and cover ups.

     

    Maybe, just maybe the Mexican authorities will do us the honor and extradite him for the many innocent Mexican lives extinguished by him through the fast and furious fiasco and he will be dragged from behind BO's coat tails, brown ring on his nose, indignantly spitting shit, kicking and screaming obscenities on his way to justice well served in a Mexican jail.

     

    I have a dream.......somehow I think it will never come true so a nomination to the douche bag of the year will have to be the only satisfaction that can be gleaned for now.

     

    Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness all have become a joke under the perverted justice this man delivers to America.

     

    When will it stop?

If military leaders had been appointed, would the world have been more vocal?

     

    What does it take for people to understand the magnitude of the theft of individual rights to vote, and countries to keep autonomy, by the actions of these governments?
    They managed to grab more power for themselves and protect bank gangsters in the process. It's worth billions to the banks.
    Perhaps someone else will nominate these two. Only time will tell what damage is yet to come.

Or maybe I should get the Naive Guy of the year award, because I thought he was better than that.

     

    The President should be disqualified and given a lifetime "DB achievement" award in order to make room for some of the other candidates. Otherwise it's just not fair. The President is always the biggest douche bag. It's one of our great traditions in this nation going back at least as far as Wilson and probably much further.

  • I really would like to nominate the entire Goldman Sachs organization for how they control government, not only here but globally, and skew all decisions to their advantage. I believe that group is better organized and immoral than the Mafia has ever been. They make money from supporting drug trafficking, they influence through bribery (ah, contributions) the political system(s) at the highest levels, they manipulate the markets, etc. There is no moral guidance in the organization whatsoever. And their leaders have put the mob to shame in regard to how much wealth they can amass. However, that would be a group so I must choose another nominee.

     

    I like (hate) the nominees mentioned thus far but I have to say there are a pair of weasels who seem to have escaped the limelight that I believe they so justly deserve: Chris Dodd and Barney Frank.

     

    It's a hard choice between them for all that they have done enable, nay, create the financial crisis and prolong the misery of millions of Americans, many of who are now homeless, on food stamps and unemployment, and owe it all to those two buffoons. I'm not talking about the folks who got mortgages they couldn't afford with practically nothing down. I'm talking about the millions of others of hard working Americans who saved up a down payment, qualified for their mortgages, made their payments faithfully, but just got engulf in the aftermath of the recession and lost everything. They lost their jobs, their homes, and their dignity because of the laws pushed upon Fannie, Freddie and the entire mortgage industry. They, more than any others, I hold more responsible for the quagmire we find ourselves in today and misery that continues for countless millions of good people. But that was mostly in the past, so I need to look at their more current record to find qualification for their nomination(s).

     

    Well, that's not so hard either. The new financial regulations are a total failure, putting off what is needed until sometime in the future and leaving most of the regulation as a "fill in the blank" format to be guided by their lobbyist minions over time. They let the financial institutions practically write their own legislation, go pity's sake! And then they claimed to have lain the "responsible foundation" for fixing the problems that they, themselves masterminded. The whole financial regulations fiasco has been nothing more than a ploy to cover their tracks and attempt to win political points with their constituencies. For that I owe a nomination.

     

    The problem is, once again, I need to designate an individual. Well, okay then, I nominate Barney Frank for all of the above crimes against humanity that he has co-constructed. The tipping point between the two is his smug, nasal, irritating voice that drives me up the wall worse than fingernails scratching on a chalkboard.

But like everything else he owns, he got them from someone else who probably deserved them more but could no longer afford them. And no, he doesn't need to wear them when he meets with the Prez! But I'm sure I don't understand why that is important.

    We need to focus on the top. For that reason, I second the nomination for the Goldman. This organization is a DB. A runner up is Blackrock. These so called financial organizations are akin to the old mob.

  • What body gave Sandusky emeritus status in 1999 after Paterno booted him from the athletic department? Usually that function is fulfilled by a Morder board appointed by the board of directors or by the board of directors directly. In either event the board was aware of the event as they had to approve his compensation package and job description. Basically it amounted to giving him hush money and covering their own back sides and that of the football program. While that makes all involved in the sordid affair culpable and DBs one and all IMHO there are much more egregious examples this year.

    In this interview, [Haruo] admitted Tepco’s explanation does not make sense, and that the China syndrome is inevitable.

     

    He stated that considering 8 months have passed since [the March 11th earthquake] without any improvement, it is inevitable that melted fuel went out of the container vessel and sank underground, which is called China syndrome.

     

    He added, if fuel has reaches a underground water vein, it will cause contamination of underground water, soil contamination and sea contamination. Moreover, if the underground water vein keeps being heated for long time, a massive hydrovolcanic explosion will be caused.

  • Oooo! We have a late entrant for the DBOTY award. Although, in this case, it's more like Stupid Dumb Fuck of The Year.

     

    Sam Hurd, who plays wide receiver for the Chicago Bears, was arrested leaving a restaurant carrying one pound of cocaine.

     

    [Extract from below link] "Hurd told the agent [earlier in the restaurant] that he was interested in buying five to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week to distribute in the Chicago area, the complaint said. He allegedly said he and a co-conspirator already distribute about four kilos of cocaine every week, but their supplier couldn't keep up with his demands. A kilogram is about 2.2 pounds.

     

    Hurd told the agent ''his co-conspirator is in charge of doing the majority of the deals'' while he focused on ''higher-end deals,'' the complaint said.

     

    He agreed to pay $25,000 for each kilogram of cocaine and $450 a pound for the marijuana, according to the charges, and then said he could pay for a kilo of cocaine after ''he gets out of practice.'' He walked out of the restaurant with the package and was arrested.

     

    ####

     

    This guy has to be as smart as a scarecrow. Who the hell out there sells/buys pot for $450/lb?

     

    For those with long term sports/drugs memories...where's the Pittsburgh Pirate Parrot?

     

    Hurry up all Chicago Bears players! Clean out your locker, your car, your wife's car, your home, start flushing the toilet, and get a blood transfusion!

  • The ridiculousness of the media cycle strikes again.

     

    Vaclav Havel, a man that could be admired and respected from many angles by people of many politics dies, and starts to get some press: http://bit.ly/uwyiDM

     

    But then Kim Jong Il - a dictator whose most admirable qualities were a penchant for Elvis and whiskey - who was roundly believed from people of many political views to be an oppressive scoundrel dies, and Havel's death evaporates from the news in favor of a kajillion stories about the fact that we will not know what will happen in North Korea next until it happens. Absolute genius.

     

    Makes me wistful for the high water mark for the mainstream media of the past decade when they turned off the cameras on people risking their lives to protest for democracy in Iran to cover Michael Jackson's death 24 hours a day... it was so wonderful watching them flash the parking lot of a hospital and a helicopter view of Michael Jackson's house at least once every ten minutes while not once saying a peep about the people they left isolated to get beaten down in Iran.

     

    A favorite memory of the Kim Jong Il era... a college student I knew in 1990 went to North Korea for a Young Socialist League conference. Curious, I asked how it was when he came back. His first thought: there were no handicapped people anywhere. Seemed an odd thing to say. He added: they're all either locked up or killed.

     

    Good times. Definitely should spend more media cycle time on that guy.

     

    Is it too late to nominate the media?

  • Author’s reply » Well, the results are in. I just got back from the Annual Douche Bag Of The Year awards ceremony held at a secret underground bunker in our 57th State, Hawaii.

     

    I'm proud to report that the nominees and 2011 winner behaved quite well and no douche bag fights broke out this year.
    Though, Nancy Pelosi seemed to take her loss badly as she sat motionless at her table with an astonished look of bewilderment the entire evening. Whether this was indeed her astonishment look or just fresh Botox, we'll never really know for sure.

     

    President Obama, who did not repeat as champion this year, tried to cheer up Ms. Pelosi by offering to indefinitely detain her political opponents. This seemed to bring a Stepford smile to her lips as she drank Champaign out of Jerry Sandusky's belly button and announced to everyone that she was "sooo drunk" and feeling a "little vulnerable". There were no takers.

     

    Sandusky did not seem to respond to Ms. Pelosi's antics but seemed to perk up when John Corzine shouted "boy" from across the auditorium. Corzine, who was also denied the coveted Golden Douchie, was merely trying to get the attention of the black waiter on the other side of the room. He too was sooo drunk. I tried to interview him for this blog but he was on his way to the airport to catch a G5 to Singapore. He said that he was lonely, missed his money, and wanted to be closer to it. Before leaving in his limo, made out of genuine baby seal skins, he did say that he was shopping for a home in Paraguay where there is no extradition treaty with the US. Altogether though, other than being a lousy tipper, a bit of a racist, and a general misanthrope, he seemed like a super guy.

     

    The big moment of the night, as usual, was the bestowing of the Golden Douchie. And, this year, it went to a man that accomplished more doucherie than anyone else with the things that he did not do.
    Eric Holder, set the new gold standard for looking the other way as more proactive douches, like Corzine and anyone else who has ever worked at Goldman Sachs, screwed, lied and outright looted the people of the United States. By shutting down investigations and denying any knowledge of anything, Eric Holder's name will forever more be enshrined in the Douche Bag Of America's Sargent Schultz Wing in Fook Yu Washington, home of the Museum Of Mighty Assholes.

     

    Holder's acceptance speech was brief. He thanked his savior Satan and gave a shout out to George Soros for appointing him AG. He then promised the attendees that "you ain't seen nothin yet, Justice is gonna mean something altogether different in 2012." Then he smiled for the first time of the entire evening and began to laugh, first quietly, then kind of demonically, you know, the muhuhahahahahah laugh, as he held the Golden Douchie high above his head.

     

    I think that everyone in the room felt a little uncomfortable.

Nancy Pelosi was in such complete shock that she had her daughter announce her withdrawl from public manipulat... uh, service. Californians are proud of the attempt she made, especially when she (a 1%er) gave gushing (really drool) support of the OWS movement (for the sake of class warfare). I guess we will now have to concentrate on Maxine Waters for our entertainment and social leadership. In retrospect it is easy to see why Holder is head and shoulders more anal than the other nominees, but for her sake I hope that Nancy is voted a close runner up. I am looking forward in anticipation to the antics of the coming year and wish a Happy and Prosperous New Year to all.

  • I can't quibble with the Eric Holder choice.

  • OG - This probably should have been held off until closer to the mid-term elections, imho. It will probably get very little play in the media and the Senate will block the impeachment. If it were held next summer/fall and not completed until after the elections then the Republicans could use the proceedings for campaign fodder and, perhaps, have a chance at gaining control of the Senate. Then something real could come from the effort. As it is, it is merely political maneuvering and I wouldn't expect Holder to be removed.

     

    But I agree, he does need to go. Then again, who would BO replace him with? It is hard to imagine worse, but we might get a surprise.

    As my nomination for DB of the year 2011 I posted this:

     

    I nominate Eric Holder. He hasn't stolen our money but has allowed all these other douche bags to continue unabated. Our pursuit of happiness, dreams and financial security diminishes daily as he allows this to continue.

     

    He has also stolen our liberty through inaction and direct actions that have stolen the very life of at least one hard working American border agent. He continues to hide facts and disallow justice as if he alone determines justice in America.

     

    We expect that those that guard the hen house should never conspire with the foxes but obviously Eric Holder takes the cake as the thieves run rampant in and out of the hen house stealing all the golden eggs of hard working Americans with him holding the door for them. If true justice ever returns to America we will see him doing a perp walk some day for his failings, deceit, lies, damn lies and cover ups.

     

    Maybe, just maybe the Mexican authorities will do us the honor and extradite him for the many innocent Mexican lives extinguished by him through the fast and furious fiasco and he will be dragged from behind BO's coat tails, brown ring on his nose, indignantly spitting shit, kicking and screaming obscenities on his way to justice well served in a Mexican jail.

     

    I have a dream.......somehow I think it will never come true so a nomination to the douche bag of the year will have to be the only satisfaction that can be gleaned for now.

     

    Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness all have become a joke under the perverted justice this man delivers to America.

     

    When will it stop?
