Perhaps I Was A Bit Hasty... awarding my Weekly Jackass this time out. Certainly there were some strong contenders, including Ben Stein, who casually put the blood of millions of Cambodians on a whistleblower, not once, but twice; and then there was the late entry of Tom Harkin:
Harkin, appearing on liberal Randi Rhodes's national radio talk show, became animated as he said of Owen: "This is not a person to put on the bench for a lifetime appointment. This person is wacko! She's wacko!"

On the same program, Harkin said Christian broadcasters are "sort of our home-grown Taliban." He added: "They have a direct line to God. And if you don't tune into their line, you're obviously on Satan's line."

Then again, there's no shortage of trophies, is there?...
