Weekly Good, Bad and Mistaken

A new feature from LEFT is RIGHT. Each week I am going to list my choices for the best, the worst and the most mistaken people whom I see in the news (not Nobel Prize winners, or missionary workers, etc.). Feel free to submit your own recommendations for the following week, as I'm quite persuadable.


1. My wife (no, really)
2. U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan
3. The families of #2
4. 9/11 recovery and cleanup personnel now sufffering or dying from WTC dust and chemical exposure
5. Bill and Melinda Gates, George Soros (wealthy people who actually care)
6. Al Gore (not as rich, but also cares)
7. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert
8. This blog (click)
9. Harper's Index
10. Creators of HBO's Lucky Louie


1. De Facto GOP Nominee Joe Lieberman
2. White House Neocon cabal
3. Manufacturers and distributors of electronic voting machines, and all the States' Elections Commissioners (or equivalent) who certify them
4. Israeli government (and their U.S. supporters)
5. Osama bin Laden (clever, but still bad)
6. Cigarette makers and distributors
7. Hummer owners
8. Arnold Schwarzenegger (Bush in California clothing)
10. Military Contractors

THE MISTAKEN (Those who should know better):

1. Senators Hillary Clinton and Dianne Feinstein (come on, ladies, start paying attention to real people)
2. Democratic Leadership Council (they hate progressives)
3. John Kerry (never did quite figure "it" out)
4. Ultra-Right evangelical preachers
5. John McCain (forgot what's important)
6. Black Republicans
7. Believers in Revelation/Apocalypse
8. Anyone who talks on a cell phone while driving any large SUV (really, it's just not safe for the rest of us)
9. Libertarians (it'll never work; go back to the Democrats)
10. Readers of this blog (so, you couldn't find a better one to read?)
