America's Best Fiend?

The Beast bills itself as "America's Best Fiend". Whether or not it's truly fiendish... well, maybe, but it's certainly an angry source of the best invective I've seen in a long time. These people would make H.L. Mencken drop his cigar into his lap in open-mouthed delight, and then keep reading happily as his trousers smoldered on unnoticed.

Of course it's the mendacious fools, skunks, and bastids — the ones whose pants really should be aflame — who get their deserved roasting here. Want an example? Visit this masterful evisceration of the 50 Most Loathsome People in America, 2007. This is Santa's "Naughty" list with Dante Alighieri's eye for the just reward. If these charlatans and shitheads had been co-habitating amongst the wretched scummy villainy of Mos Eisley, old Obi-wan himself would've borrowed the Death Star to slag the whole damn thing. Instead, all they get is a public pillorying at the hands of The Beast. It might not be satisfying as an actual televised flensing and salting, but it ain't bad.

These Beast folk, they're worth reading. Next time one of those boobs on Fox or CNN has you ready to pitch your sabots through your new HD screen, turn to The Beast instead. Somebody out there understands, bubbe. They really do.

Best thing about this list: It manages to be funny AND cutting by hitting at idiots on both sides of the aisle.

Only weakness: I had to get down to 9 before I found myself on the list.

Great find, GD. Thanks!!
