A national CNN/Opinion Research poll reveals the top three Naughtiest Politicians of 2008. May I have the envelope please, Vanna?
Bronze: John Edwards (D-Sleazebag), who cheated with Rielle Hunter on his cancer-stricken wife and reportedly fathered a not-so-secret love child.
Silver: Love Client #9, former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer (D-Hypocrisy), who was ensnared in the rollup of a high-end prostitution ring.
Gold: Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D-Batsh*t crazy), seemingly involved in so many pay-to-play schemes he probably had a dedicated IT staff to keep all of the grifts straight.
Honorable mentions weren't listed, but I'm betting they included Charlie Rangel (D-Tax Man), Allan Mollohan (D-Self-made Millionaire), John Murtha (D-Porkmeister), and William Jefferson (D-Freezer Burn).
RELIAPUNDIT ADDS: LET'S DUB THIS AWARD (WHICH HONORS SCANDALOUS POLITICIANS) "THE TEA POT AWARDS" - (AFTER THE INFAMOUS TEA POT DOME SCANDAL).
AND WE CAN GIVE THE GOLD TEA POT TOO...
