The Buffalo Beast is out with their annual 50 Most Loathsome People in America list. Everyone's there; Here are some descriptions of America's Best:
Lee Raymond: Bears the grotesque physical ugliness of an oligarch born pre-caricatured by Thomas Nast

Alex Jones: A blustery schizoid moron who makes everyone near him look like an ass just for not punching him when they have the chance.

Deepak Chopra: another mystical moron providing a psychic security blanket to soft-skulled suckers.
They include an entry for 'You' every year, but it takes a new dimension this year as you, the American Citizen, was declared Person of the Year by Time.
You: Your whole life has been a pitiful exercise in rote mimicry, a meek subjugation of individuality in exchange for herd approval. Your delusions of "common sense" wisdom stem from an unwillingness to seek information and an inability to critically analyze it. You never hesitate to offer strong opinions on subjects you don]?t know a damn thing about. You]?re willing to believe anything a guy in a suit says on TV, as long as it doesn]?t hint at your culpability in the negligent homicide of your country and planet or otherwise cloud your streak-free conscience. You]?re more worried about friction on the "Desperate Housewives" set than the lack of health coverage at your tedious, soul-destroying job. You have no idea what is going on in the world, and youÂ?re fine with that. You are why democracy doesn]?t work.
So, just go read the whole thing.

Also, they somehow managed a funny interview with Noam Chomsky.
