Self-proclaimed mega genius Jim Diamond has just released his annual Stupidest Statements Awards, his list of the top 10 dumb comments made by people in the public eye in the last year.
Topping this years list is Indian welfare minister Vijay Prakash, who urged five-star hotels to serve rat by saying, It is very high in protein and the beauty is that we have billions of rats.
Not too far behind Prakash is Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, who had a hard time naming a Supreme Court ruling she disagreed with.
She said, Well, lets see. Theres, of course, in the great history of America there have been rulings, thats never going to be absolute consensus by every American.
Diamond explains that a truly stupid statement comes from someone whos unable to learn anything new.
He usually counts on President George W. Bush and Paris Hilton for dumb zingers, but they didnt make the cut this year.
