Here is a segment that has been shamelessly ripped off from Keith Olbermann’s Countdown on MSNBC. I will document the week’s dirtiest, scummiest, creepiest – in short, worst – people in the news. Use the comment thread to post some nominations of your own.

And now, without further ado…

Worst Person in the World!

This week, our runner up is Colonel Muammar Gaddafi of Libya, who caused a diplomatic incident in Nigeria when he arrived in the airport with 200 heavily armed guards (diplomatic missions are allowed only eight pistols). When his guards were not allowed to enter, Gaddaffi stormed off and threatened to walk the 25 miles to the capital to complain. After a several hour stand-off, the Libyans agreed to leave their excess weapons on the plane and were allowed to proceed to the capital.

Oh, those silly dictators!

Our winner this week, in tribute to the man whose routine I have shamelessly stolen, is none other than Bill O'Reilly himself. O'Reilly recently said that Vermont should be forced out of the Union for electing Bernie Sanders to the Senate.

Media Matters has the video.

Bill, I think we'll be seeing more of you in the future. Somehow, I feel it's inevitable.

In the meantime, everybody, keep peaceful.

And whatever you do, take care of your shoes.

As an aside, I'd like to note that obviously these aren't the worst people in the world, but it's no fun to write about the human traffickers and genuine slime of humanity. I'm restricting this to political, insensitive, or inane goings-on.

If possible, I'd like to add a second-runner-up? Adam showed me an interesting video that certainly makes Ed Rogers look worthy of Worst Person in the World status... Check it out:
