The Grand Game: Most appalling comment

It's been a while since we played the "grand game," where KPC readers are cordially invited to find the most asinine component of a post on another blog, and quote it for fun and for cash. Well, for fun.

Here's the post, by old friend Nick Gillespie, ex-editor of Reason mag, and now head of Reason-TV.

Two initial things:

1. You canNOT list Nick's suggestion that I run for Prez as the most asinine part of the post. Self-consciously absurd passages are called "irony," and are not eligible for GG entries. Only absurdities that are intended seriously make it past our strict panel of judges. Nick is clearly having a little fun. But the commenters are not big on fun. They are your data; find the maximum.

2. In this same vein, Tannim's comment (November 21, 2008, 12:28pm) does NOT qualify for the GG. It is funny, but intentionally so:

Talk to your proctologist about your lobotomy; it's overdue.

Now, THAT is intellectual discourse.

Go to it....

I tried to play; I really did. But reading flame wars is tedious.

However, I will propose "sfcmac" as Most Politically Inept for saying this: 4 years of the Obamessiah will have you praying for the GOP in 2012. If fact, the BO will be adored no matter how badly he screws up. It will always be excused and blame laid elsewhere. For precedent, see FDR, our Most Beloved Worst President Ever.

I agree, kind of a lame stunt. Now if he had performed self-immolation on the steps of the capitol like a buddhist monk, that would have got some attention.
