- To be blunt about it, readers consider him an ass.
The results are in, and in the closest tally in Daily RFT "Ass Clown" history
, this week's title goes to Missouri congressman (and senate hopeful) Roy Blunt
. Question is: Will Blunt be "honored" by the recognition?
Blunt won 33 percent of the vote in a special radical right-wing edition
of "Ass Clown of the Week" for saying he was "honored"
when his name appeared on a list of the nation's most environmentally unfriendly legislators.
Coming in at a very close second (with 32 percent of the vote) was previous ass clown winner Cynthia Davis
. The Republican state rep from O'Fallon made news twice last week for sponsoring legislation to allow people to carry handguns in churches
and to force feed the terminally ill
Third place with 26 percent of the vote was John Burns
, the tea party activist
who's spearheading efforts to defeat funding for public transportation in St. Louis.
Fourth place with 9 percent of the vote was conservative blogger Jim Hoft
with Gateway Pundit.
