Dick Cheney Odds-On Favorite To Be ‘Stupidest Man Of Year’

VANCOUVER, B.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Of all the dumb luck: Dick Cheney is the odds-on favorite to be declared the Stupidest Man of the Year on Wednesday (Sept. 20).

On that day, an organization called the Academy Recognizing Stupidity Everywhere – ARSE for short – will announce its Fourth Annual World Stupidity Awards.

The Vice President is up for “Stupidest Man of the Year,” along with former FEMA director Michael Brown; Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad; North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il; and Oklahoma judge Donald Thompson, who was caught operating a penis pump on himself during three separate trials.

Cheney is the favorite, at least according to internet oddsmaker Michael Wilson, who made his odds by calculating how much news coverage each of the nominees received for their idiotic behavior.

He figures Cheney’s “shot heard ’round the world” makes him the sure bet but World Stupidity Awards spokesman Albert Nerenberg says deciding the biggest fool isn’t easy because, he admits, “We’re in a golden age of stupidity.”
