The voting for this year’s DBoTY was very heavy, and close for a long time. But in the end, we had a clear winner(s) – Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews of the left-wing PR machine known as MSNBC.
For a long time it looked as though Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi were going to pull it off and take the trophy, but a massive push from voters in the last week put Olbermann/Matthews over the top by 5 points.
The final tally went like this:
Olbermann/Matthews – 22%
Reid/Pelosi – 17%
Dodd/Frank – 12%
Al Franken – 10%
Hank Paulson – 10%
While it’s difficult to really say who was doucheier in a year filled with so much douchebaggery, the choice of Olbermann (or as we affectionately call him, Uberdouche) and Matthews is a solid one by voters. They took the once-great NBC News to new lows of media bias and PR hackery. No words we could ever write could to justice to the “thrill up the leg” comment, or any lie spewed by Uberdouche. So, instead of trying, we’re just going to give you a clip of each at their doucheiest.
And Uberdouche. No one clip can encapsulate the extent of his total douchebaggery, so here is just a minute of this asshole at work.
Congratulations to all our contenders and to our winners. We have a feeling a great many of you will be on the list for this year, too.
Good night, and good luck.
