In case anyone missed it and especially for my American friends, please take this link  to Michael Tomasky’s American “Hall of Shame” for the year 2008. His choice of Sarah Palin as runner-up (to Bernard Madoff) is well backed up by this vituperative but accurate description of “everyone’s favourite hockey Mom” (sic … or do I mean sick?):

“Never in my adult lifetime has one politician so perfectly embodied everything that is malign about my country: the proto-fascist nativism, the know-nothingism, the utterly cavalier lack of knowledge about the actual principles on which the country was founded.”
