It would have been WAY too easy to pick former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich as this week's candidate. He could have actually gotten it for more than just a few weeks thanks to his behavior. To have the audacity to get caught on tape and then trying to deny that he did anything wrong simply amazed me. Certainly the honorable thing to do would have been to bow out gracefully, right? Maybe for a more distinguished person, but not him.
In fact, the entire reason I didn't give it to Roddy was he was trying way too hard to get it. He knew he was sunk yet insisted on doing interview after interview in an effort to proclaim his innocence. I'm sure not a single one of the shows he went on actually believed he was telling the truth. They only had him on there to boost their own ratings. That alone should have them getting the Mr. Bungles award.
I could have also given it to the Republican National Committee for their recent effort to try to show the world that they really aren't prejudiced. See...they really do like Black people because they elected a brotha as their party chief. Nevermind that his closest opposition, Katson Dawson of South Carolina, belonged to the whites-only Forest Lake Country Club up until a few months ago. No...the RNC's selection was far too obvious to even dignify that with a response. Oops...I guess I already did.
Instead, this week Mr. Bungles goes to Canadian Daniel Cormier.
Cormier, who also has the unmitigated nerve to call himself a pastor, was sentenced this past Monday to five years in prison for sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl. As if that wasn't bad enough, he claims that the girl was his wife. He further maintained he did nothing wrong when he married the girl, then 10-years-old, in 1999 during a ceremony at his church.
This might not be fair to give this to just Cormier. What about the folks who were attending this so-called church of his? They are just as guilty as he is if they witnessed him marrying a 10-year-old and said nothing about it. Any one of them that sat idly by without saying anything are just as guilty due to their silence. I hope for their sake that none of them were actually present when this "ceremony" took place.
Wait...it gets even better. This idiot is currently on trial in another case where he is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl. That also happened during his time as an alleged pastor. That makes it obvious that he has a problem molesting children. Even worse is the fact that he thinks it is okay. There should be no trial for people like this. Lock them UNDER the jail and don't allow them ever to see the light of day. Oh...but make sure they are castrated without anesthetic first. And that's just for starters.
