Funniest thing on the internet, ever

Unfortunately this is also largely one of the truest pieces of writing I've ever read in our era.

The Buffalo Beast has torn just about everyone a new one with the brilliant 50 Most Loathsome People in America 2006. I only wish I could write this well!

On Nancy Pelosi: "Anyone who thinks this brittle fundraising machine with the safest seat this side of North Korea is going to implement any ethics reform beyond the paltriest possible cosmetic gesture needs to lay off the medicinal marijuana. Pelosi's reign in the House will be better than Republican golem Denny Hastert's in the same way that gonorrhea is better than syphilis. ... Hasn't debated an opponent in twenty years. A true Democrat, Pelosi literally has no balls."

On Rush Limbaugh: "It's hard to believe this repulsive shit fountain is even human, until you remember that we share 70% of our DNA with pigs."

On Deepak Chopra: "Widely regarded by new age simpletons to be a font of wisdom, Chopra peddles a chutney-flavored weak anthropic principle based on the usual dippy claptrap about "universal energy" and a profoundly erroneous extrapolation of quantum physics. An accused plagiarist and sexual harasser, Chopra entreats his readers to abandon their silly religious traditions—and adopt his. Pitching a watered-down Hinduism as some perfect union of science and spirituality while supporting Intelligent Design and purporting to "prove" the existence of an afterlife, Chopra's work proves only one thing: he's just another mystical moron providing a psychic security blanket to soft-skulled suckers."

You get the idea... just go read this!
