Presenting the First Annual Political "Turdy" Award (Video)


The First Annual Bipartisan TPC "Turdy" Award for Politics is juvenile, somewhat tasteless and yet incredibly appropriate!

And, given the nature of politics and politicians, it certainly won't be the last!

The idea for the "Turdy" Awards came to me after watching an old episode of South Park (video clip below) in which there was a global competition for the world's largest excrement.

What better way I thought to "honor" the typical politician in America today. Those from both major political parties who tend to be gutless, spineless and for the most part full of crap!

While this may not be the most sophisticated award, and it might be one that some (or many) find to be slightly (or very) juvenile, given the current political climate in Washington and elsewhere around the country it might also be the most relevant and apropos!

Nominate your "favorite" politician in the comments section below and, if you are so inclined, explain why they are so deserving of the award!

The Award Criteria

Heading into the 2012 election cycle it's time for the voting public to cast their ballot, in full bipartisan fashion, for the U.S. politician who they feel exemplifies the very worst that American politics has to offer.

In other words is your nominee, does your nominee or has your nominee:
  1. Been born and bred for politics having had few if any non-political jobs,
  2. Begun campaigning for reelection the second the prior elections votes have been counted,
  3. Possess a tendency to put special interests ahead of the "folks" back home on Main Street,
  4. Motivated by power and influence, and would sell their souls (or anyone elses for that matter) for a single vote,
  5. Make the welfare of their constituents absolutely the last consideration they have when making a decision or when casting a vote,
  6. Live their political life with one finger in the air gauging which way the political winds are blowing, and then prostitute their values and principles to bend with the political polls,
  7. Ever been accused or actually found guilty of some political, moral, social or criminal indiscretion.
Nominate your "favorite" politician in the comments section below and, if you are so inclined, explain why they are so deserving of the award!

  1. Vote: Herman Cain

    In the end he proved himself to be just another politician.

  2. Barack Obama for all of the obvious reasons! The rest of the left-wing is a very close second!

  3. Barack Obama for meeting AND surpassing all the criteria. The ultimate Marxist.

  9. Well, she's not a politician, but I nominate Katie Couric. She's such a piece of crap herself, that a "couric" is now the official unit of measure for crap.

  12. There should probably be a separate category for the mainstream media, most of whom would need to be measured in courics!

  13. Newt Gingrich for pretending to be a conservative, when he is really a progressive turd!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I vote for the Big OTurd himself, but after him there are so many choices....how about Pelousy or Reid.

  17. Tempted to go with Joe Biden, who would be wearing a paper hat and fetching fries if he wasn't a politician, but he's not quite turdy enough. Gotta be Barack Obama.


    Caught this on iOTW :)

  18. You'd have to pick Barack Hussein Obama, although there are a number of worthy second placers.

  19. Barack Obama. 2nd Choice: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

  20. Posthumously, Ted Kennedy-
    No one outdoes his ruination of this country as much or as often-and don't forget his killing of Mary Jo Kopechne which proved to not even be enough to unseat this scurrilous piece of crap!

  21. Barack Insane Obummer um, umm, ummmm.

  22. Barney Frank meets the criteria to the T, and seeing he on his way out with his golden parachute in tact, I think he should be nominated with extreme prejudice.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Laura Richardson, it doesn't get any more corrupt....

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ultimately it would have to be Barack Hussein Obama MMM MMMM MMMM! But his idiot minions would get dishonorable mention: Eric Holder, his POS wife, the Bernacke, I could go on ...

  25. Who else but the big dumbass BO! There are many others but no one comes close to him.

    Bawney Fwank for his still-uninvestigated complicity in the financial crisis.

  28. Instead of the turd pretending to be a Bono all these years is kinds like Obama pretending to be an American all these years

    ReplyDelete
  29. So many worthy choices,so few opportunities for voter fraud at this late hour...But! I suppose if I have to s#it or get off the pot,Chairman Obama has to get the well deserved nod...After all,he is the head of the snake that bites us,right? Hold your applause please,lest we hurt the feelings of the well deserving also rans;Pelosi,Boxer, Waxman,Feinstein(thanks for that Mexifornia)Reid,Frank,Rangle,and on and on it goes ad nauseum...
    Honorable mention should go to the Alphabet Media for doing such a masterful job of belittling the vast majority of the American people,and propping up our Marxist nominees in every deceitful way they possibly can...Bravo! Bravo!
    I'm supposed to mention something about IOTW...so there you go...

    Obama

    No need for an explanation, even a 5 year old would understand why.

  32. Obama, no doubt. However, about 90% of the politicians would fall into the category of nominee. A sad situation.

  33. "Dingy Harry" (thank you, Rush) Reid! (But oh-so-hard to choose, with so many worthy recipient...)

  34. Bill Clinton: Not for just what he has done but for all the crap weasels he placed into the bureaucracy and supported in the Legislature. Also his selection of Al Gore and placing him in the lime light.

  35. Dear Michael: What surprised me most was the use of "First Annual", it is an oxymoron. If it is the "first" it can not be annual and if it is "annual" it can not be first. Try " the first in a series" etc.

    PS love you posts

    ReplyDelete
  36. I stand corrected on the misuse of "First Annual" and next year will certainly not make the same mistake again!

    Thanks for the PS.

  37. Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio. He NEVER supports one thing that is good for Ohio, quite the contrary, he only supports unions that support him! His responses to any letter are obviously written by a tax paid staffer well versed in double speak.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'd say Obama leads in all categories except perhaps #7.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Is this a trick question? How could anyone with a brain that works not vote for Obama. The very definition of a evil, corrupt, lawless and petty tyrannical Narcissist. There are many dishonorable mentions, but none come close to the level BO has made the country stink.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi Hoard. Not a trick question and I agree with your comment.
