You need to be told that…
There's a zillion websites who dedicate thesmelves
to 'saying it like it is'
But having read your articles and lists, I'm speechless.
It's without a doubt one of the best, most intelligent,
witty and hilarious sites I have ever had the privilege of coming
across. My sides are aching with laughter, I don't think I can stop.
You guys rock. Keep it up.
Thanks, NOMIA. Now go tell Lorne
LOVED BY A LUDDITE
Paul and friends,
I'm not a great blog reader. In fact, I've never
web "surfed". Anytime I logon which is rare because I
hate computers, it's to find something specific I need.
But a friend, who knows I can't stand the Bush era,
and who knows my taste for black humor aimed at the right people
sent me to "The Beast's" 50 Most Loathesome page.
Wow! It's like you're reading my mind! I agree with
most everything written here. But I could never hads articulkated
it with such passion and talent. It gratified me tremendously to
discover people as angry as myself at the unbelievable stupidity
and arrogance of current American culture. But what I most admired
most was the quality of the writing . Wow, cogent, terse, clever
and passionate. So fucking refreshing! How did such fearless, common
sense language get banished from the airwaves and mainstream media.
If I were Jon Stewart or... fuck that, if I were
the NY Times, I'd hire, sight unseen the writer(s) of this list.
Brilliant, simply brilliant impassioned work. Whew!
Keep hammering. You are SO needed.
Michael Hardesty, a red state loner
Hardesty, why aren’t you Jon Stewart? Work on it, will you?
You absolutely rock. That thud you hear is
me falling off my chair laughing at how well and truly you skewered
50 people who definitely have deserved it the most (including God
and All the Rest of Us).
All of you, if you haven't already figured this
out, deserve a girnormous readership. I only came upon
your article by a chance mention in a blog I don't even read that
You guys remind me of the grand old days of Spy
magazine, back when it was a little subversive 80's rag.
Come the revolution, I'd be most proud to be on
Our readership may not
be ginormous, Lisa, but it is “meatnormous.”
A CONGREGATION OF ONE
I have slowly and carefully read your list of the
50 most horrible people in America, and you writers have rapidly
become my gods. I now believe I can reduce my consumption
of cheap wine and expensive drugs and still live in the world.
How gratifying it was to read that like you, SOMEONE
thinks that Our President is the stupidest, most insensitive bastard
this long presidential line has ever produced. I have only
two wishes for him; first, that for some selfish reason (and I don't
care what that is) he ends the war and brings home the troops who
are killing themselves for nothing. My second wish is
that he become very ill, and forced to step down----at which time
Dick Cheney will be revealed in his total psychotic mania, and even
the republicans will have to lock him up and issue commands which
SUPPOSEDLY come from him.
Good to you,
I'm with you!
That’s great, Ellen; now
sacrifice your first-born male to us, and bring some of those expensive
MORE HACKY, PLEASE
First of all, thanks for the laughs (and guilt trip,
for that matter).
I couldn't quite figure out why you'd subject Bush Jr to eternity
under the DieBold machine with hot dogs out of reach. First of all,
wouldn't the DieBold machines be more worthy of Walden O'Dell or
Katherine Harris? Second, shouldn't the hot dogs and bourbon be
replaced by pretzels and a mountain bike?
Pretzels and a mountain
bike, Matt? Do you write Leno’s
DON’T CALL ME “TOOTS”
mr. luthman --
quick question, toots: who in the FUCK wrote "the 50 most loathesome
people in america, 2005 piece"? today i had my very first taste
of your publication, and i must say that i am blown away by the
writing. even with my utterly foul and hateful partisanship aside,
that piece, specifically, is perhaps some of the best writing i
have read in many, many moons. who wrote it? what else do they write?
do they have a book out? a regular column, perhaps? might i blow
them for the difference?
a name, good sir -- i need a name.
many thanks --
Well, Muffy, it sure as
hell isn’t “Luthman.” However, you can still blow me.
CHEER AND LOATHING
Just wanted to thank you for the "50 Most Loathsome People
in America, 2005" article. You make if obvious that the spirit
of Huster S. Thompson is alive and well. Excellent choices all around
(though I would have wanted Parislut Hilton in the top 5).
As soon as I have money back in my Paypal account - I'm subscribing...
Keep up the good work.
You hear that, folks? He’s
subscribing. Why not join him? It’s what Huster S. Thompson would
do, whoever that is!
SMARTER THAN A REANIMATED CORPSE
Just want to let you know that the "50 most
loathsome" was the funniest -- and most bang-on -- think I've
read in some time. It's like Hunter Thompson came back from the
grave a smarter man.
Keep up the good work. I will be visiting your site
from now on. It will remind me up here in Canada that the USA is
not completely full of crack pots.
Well, you know, Jonathan,
it’s not exactly Wichita. We can practically pee into Canada from
Congratulations on your 50 most loathsome Americans.
You and the other contributors have a talent for invective that
I thought had been lost for good when Hunter Thompson died. I always
thought old Hunter had the clearest vision of any American journalist
or historian. I am glad that somebody still sees things the way
Thanks for an enjoyable read. By the way, a lot
of the stuff in #4 (you!) doesn't apply to me. I commute to work
on a bicycle, 5,000 miles a year. My TV quit two months ago, and
I have not gotten it fixed yet. I never watched it very much when
it worked. I don't miss it! And my congressman is Benny Thompson,
a democrat, of all things, in the state of Mississippi! I must
say, for a lot of people in Mississippi and other states, it does
not do them a lot of good, knowing who their contressman is.
Look people, stop it with
the HST comparisons. Everybody knows Matt Taibbi is the new Thompson.
Let him deal with that shit.
The latest "Worst People" list -- simply
the best thing ever written by anyone anywhere about anything.
Steilacoom, WA (Adam Smith, D, 9th District -- just want to make
sure you know I know...)
Thanks, Chuck. We were
a little worried about Shakespeare, but you have put those qualms
A masterpiece! Bravo and cheers! Wish I had the
$$ to hire a skywriter to write your words all across the U.S. sky.
Write on, friends, write on!
-- Jean Goldstrom
Thanks, Jean, but we’re not sure how the FCC
feels about high-altitude profanity. Think of the children!
I usually don't read these things, but your list
was one of the funniest things I have read in years! Both hilarious
and highly informative. Keep it up!
Thanks Will—what things?
NOW THERE’S AN IDEA
Dear Evil Editors,
I want to tell you all how much laughter and
sadness you gave me as I read this list!
The Barbara Bush's "polluted womb"
line was by far the best I've ever read in a LONG time! Thanks So
much for putting everything into prospective!
If you folks ever decide to start up a newspaper
that reports the news that us Americans need to hear, warts and
all, count me in for a subscription! God, how our country needs
a collective kick in the ass!
Keep the Peace!
Kurt R. Sieber
You’re in luck, Kurt! We just
started up such a paper, and published 92 issues. What a coincidence!
IT’S NOT A BLOG, DAMMIT
Your Most Loathsome list ROCKS!!!!
It's much too good, and too well written, to confine
to a blog. Any plans to bring it out in book form? You could expand
it to 100 to compete with that gasbag Bernie Goldberg (he could
be one of the next 50, in fact).
Goldberg stole our idea,
dammit! Still, it’s a good thing someone’s leading the charge against
such threats to our nation as Barbara Streisand and Courtney Love.
Those people are dangerous!
I guess you'll claim you equally bashed liberals
and conservatives alike in your stupid list (I hate lists anyway)
but in reality you just threw a few bones in there to fool the uninformed.
For if not, how could you not have Ted Kennedy, Farrakan, Pelosi,
Schumer, Mr Hillary Clinton, Sean Penn, Rev. Al, Letterman, Feinstein,
Reid, Bagin, Blanco, , well I could go on and on.
Any by the way, President Bush is one of the BEST
Presidents we have ever had due to his realization that we have
to take the fight to our enemies and not sit on our butts like Clinton
and Carter did and look what it got us. He gets it, as do most
Americans, you do not.
It’d be ridiculous to claim
we bashed conservatives and liberals equally, because we didn’t.
But Letterman? Come on, Dave, really. Can’t you do better than that?
He punk’d your man-crush, so he’s an enemy of the state now? And
Ted Kennedy drove a girl to her death, drunk—37 years ago. If that’s
all you’ve got, you can write your own list—the 50 Pettiest Grudges
in America. Hey, don’t forget Howard Dean! He made a noise!
Halfway into reading this, I remember the Daily
Show already exists and stopped.
Thanks for answering the question, "Would Al
Franken be funny if he used obscenities?" I thought the answer
was no, but it's always nice to be sure.
Oh, and next time, you may want to throw in some
more random flops of big words so people know what kind of liberal
elitist they're reading. Otherwise they might get all truculent
P.S. - I don't think god hates fags, but I'm pretty
sure he hates you.
Wow Josh, you sure told
us. Your incisive wit and original prose puts us to shame—where
did you come up with such a biting turn of phrase as “liberal elitist?”
That one’s sure to catch on. Sorry we made you crack the spine on
your dictionary, pinhead.
I am glad you listed "You" becuase I don't
care about the planet. YOU ARE SO SO RIGHT. I LOVE POLLUTION,
I DRIVE A BIG GAS HOG (BMW M5, 10 CYCLINDER 500 HP) AND LOVE IT.
I REGULARY THROW TRASH OUT MY CAR DOOR, DO NOT RECYCLE AND HOPE
GLOBAL WARMING IS BEING CUASED BY HUMANS (ALTHOUGH NOT POSSIBLE
IF YOU KNOW SCIENCE).
I have environmentalist, the Sierra
Club pussies, green peace, ELF, ALF and espcecially PETA. Although
I love having PETA around becuase they are so wacky and it makes
me want to go bird hunting. Me and a buddy will go out into a farmer
field and see how many birds we can kill in a day. My record is
124 is 3 hours ( I ran out of bullets).
By the way, I am dead serious and you
guys are not funny in the least but at least #4 is correct
Thanks, Steve, for confirming
our worst prejudices.
YOU SUCK, AWESOMELY
You are an idiot.
I am surprised that you can even type! Usually,
dimwits like you can't spell or express a coherent thought.
Your skills are far above the usual leftist vermin.
Thank you for an entertaining waste of time.
Time for you lithium, Greg.
ANOTHER ELOQUENT REBUTTAL
People like you are always missing one thing. Rationality.
Letting your emotions control what you think is real. You're all
so emotional and unrealistic why do you think so many poeple are
more conservative now than before? People do not want to align
themselves with people that are so hate filled. I don't agree with
all things conservative but I'm farther from your group than ever
before. Unbelievable how clueless you people are....sheesh.
Thanks for your comments,
Sara. We’ll be sure and let “our group” know, since we’re so tight
with the DNC. You’re right—Republicans are so realistic and unemotional.
You know, your list was pretty much on target.
However, as a thinking, participating and educated member of what's
left of working America, I have to disagree with your repeated,
mind-numbing use of profanity.
There are still some people in this world who rely
on a good vocabulary to get their point across. Shock-jocks masquerade
as know-it-all pundits when all they're really doing is tossing
Your list made several - more than several - very
valid points. Which I thought could have been made without f-bombs
and other assorted assaults to good English.
Gee, Pat, that’s just too fucking
GOD WILL KICK OUR ASSES
Some of this is clever but then typically you boys
get carried away by your own undisguised animus of everything and
virtually everyone. It really redounds badly to your fevered attempts
at satire. Well, at least the BTK Killer beat out Samuel Alito and
Now what was that saying about the beginning of
“W,” right Robert? The beginning of wisdom. “W.” Yeah, that’s got
to be it.
CAN’T COUNT, LOVES VEGETABLES
Your article on the 100 most hated people in America was appalling.
The fact that you showed absolutely no remorse about dissing a poor
woman shows how stupid, and rude you are. You need to learn some
respect for people, because obviously you don't care about who you
hurt along the way. Your article clearly shows that you guys don't
care about anyone, some of those people were correct, others were
put in there because you guys are lacking mental capacity. But if
you're going to put down fifty good people, 20 bad people, and 30
people who have absolutely nothing wrong about them, at least leave
out the people who can't defend themselves. I want to puke because
you showed absolutely no sadness over the loss of a beautiful woman,
who's husband deserves to have his neck ripped off. You guys disgust
me. I feel sorry for whoever raised you, their children turned out
to be worthless pieces of trash. Have a nice day, and consider removing
a poor woman slaughtered cruelly because her husband wanted to have
sex with his mistress.
Tell us, Elizabeth, how
exactly do you rip a guy’s neck off? Respectfully, of course.
gotta hand it to you liberal jews!
masking america hatred with another make-believe
free for all.
no matter. pres. bush has destroyed the jew
york times and will destroy you.
We hate to disappoint you,
JC, but we looked all around our offices, and we can’t find any
Jews. You’ll just have to find another sick, ignorant reason to
hate us. We do enjoy Woody Allen, though, and boy do we miss the
Jew York Times.
