You wanna add another candidate? It’s like the Republican primary is like a season of American Idol in reverse, where every week, you just add another idiot. …First you guys wanted (Michele) Bachmann, then (Rick) Perry — now (Chris) Christie? You know what, Republican base? Meet me at camera three!
(To camera three.) Have you ever considered the possibility that maybe your candidates aren’t the problem — maybe it’s you? You’re hard to please or figure out! You’re unrealistic! I mean, you’re pro-life, yet — (rolls tape of GOP members applauding Texas’s death penalty) — what was that? You’re afraid of ‘death panels,’ yet for uninsured coma patients — (rolls tape of GOP members shouting ‘YEAH!!!’ when Ron Paul was asked if a patient without health insurance should be allowed to die) — that’s the crowd: ‘YEAH!!!’ You guys ‘support the troops’ — well except for Captain Creatine over here (rolls tape of gay U.S. Army soldier who asked GOP candidates if they’d repeal DADT — and was booed by GOP debate crowd).
It’s like the Republican base is at war with its own talking points: ‘I want someone who’s gonna cut taxes — and balance the budget! Someone who’s a skilled orator — that doesn’t talk all fancy! The child of poor immigrants — who will build a fence to keep them out of this country! Someone who’s strong enough for a man — but Ph-balanced for a woman!
…It’s like your ideal candidate is a rare, super-heavy element that can only exist in a particular particle accelerator. And even then, only for a fraction of a second. Before you all remember how much you hate science.
You guys need to take a long, hard look in the mirror, and not come away thinking ‘Hey, there’s something wrong with this mirror.’By JON STEWART, on media-fed rumors that New Jersey governor Chris Christie may enter the GOP presidential race — as well as the hypocritical sentiments of the Republican party — on The Daily Show (via inothernews)
Since the site was started on May 4, 2013, we have chosen an Asshole of the Day 193 times, and had 138 different winners. That’s a lot of variety. But, even so, when it came time to pick the 2013 Asshole of the Year, a few bubbled to the top. Below we will describe the 10 finalists and why we chose them, and then we’ll ask you to vote on the winner. Voting will last through Saturday, January 4, and yes, you can vote more than once. We won’t even require ID.
The Finalists for 2013 Asshole of the Year
1. Ted Cruz
Asshole of the Day co-founder TeaPartyCat nominated Ted Cruz, pointing out that no one was a bigger asshole during the government shutdown and the events leading up to it than Ted Cruz. Most notably, he gave a 20-hour faux filibuster in support of shutting the government down, and then during the shutdown he went to protests against the shutdown pretending it was Obama’s fault. And, as if proving the point, he went on ABC this week and claimed it wasn’t his shutdown nor his blunder, but Obama’s and Harry Reid’s. There’s more, so you should read the entire nomination and see why Ted Cruz was named Asshole of the Day 6 times, more than anyone else in 2013.
Asshole of the Day co-founder TheDailyEdge nominated Rick Perry, citing his war on women and voting, as well as how he not only didn’t push for regulations to prevent another explosion like in West, Texas, but used the lack of regulations as a selling point for attracting new businesses. Yeah, that happened. Read the entire nomination for the full story of how Rick Perry was named Asshole of the Day 3 times in 2013.
Rick Santorum, in an appearance on Fox News, praised Nelson Mandela over the protestations of Bill O’Reilly, and then compared his own fight against Obamacare— the fight to deny tens of millions of people access to affordable healthcare— to Nelson Mandela’s fight against apartheid.
4. Ted Nugent
Ted Nugent says a lot of stupid, offensive things, but he took it to a new level when he said he could fix the “black problem” if they would put their heart and soul into being honest and law-abiding citizens and “buy alarm clocks”. He was also named Asshole of the Day 3 times in 2013.
5. Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin returned to the public eye this fall to promote her book on the War On Christmas. In on November interview, she said that African Americans can’t comprehend her definition of slavery, so stuck they are with the ones their ancestors experienced. It was the most-viewed post on the site in 2013. She later defended Asshole of the Day Phil Robertson for homophobic and racist comments he made, but it turns out she never actually read the comments. She was also named Asshole of the Day 3 times in 2013.
6. Scott Walker
Scott Walker was named Asshole of the Day 3 times in 2013. First, he so there could be no protests. Then he called denying gays the right to marry but not lose their job a “healthy balance”. And finally, he suggested people donate to his campaign for Christmas instead of buying their children toys.
7. Donald Trump
Donald Trump was named Asshole of the Day 4 times in 2013, which is no surprise since we defined the qualifications for being named Asshole of the Day on Trump. He had the usual scams and slanders, but the thing that really stood out was when he complained that Steve Jobs’ wife shouldn’t be able to date after 2 years because he left her billions. He must think leaving a wife money means she should never find happiness again. Hope Trump’s current and future wives are listening.
Rush Limbaugh continued to carry on like he always has, despite all the sponsors he lost in the wake of his awful tirade against Sandra Fluke. He was named Asshole of the Day 4 times in 2013, including one for claiming— get this— that it was an ACCIDENT that he called Sandra Fluke a slut, despite the fact that he continued to call her that for days at a time, along with plenty of other nasty, sexist things.
Pat Robertson was named Asshole of the Day 5 times in 2013, which tied him for 2nd with John Boehner. How did he do it? The same way he always has— by berating his own fans and blathering about his fear of gays and the modern world. Our favotire— when he claimed gays were spreading AIDS using special sharp rings to cut people when they shake hands. Yes, he really said that. Plenty more where that came from— read them all.
10. John Boehner
As I argued in the nomination for Ted Cruz, John Boehner did not relish his role as Speaker for the Assholes. But he did the job, and was named Asshole of the Day 5 times in 2013, which tied him for 2nd with Pat Robertson. But even if he didn’t seem to love being an asshole, he was, many times over, and he could have stopped or shortened many of the crises in 2013 (or since 2011) if he just called a vote. It was too much though when he complained that Obama’s policies aren’t helping people get jobs, when in fact he won’t call a vote on Obama’s jobs bill.
And Now It’s Time To Vote On Who Should Be The 2013 Asshole of the Year
