Weekly Darwin 'dumbest of them all' awards for the week ending November 7, 2009

We had a lot of contenders this week for 'the dumbest of them all' Darwin award. Among them are:

-The New Jersey Hospital personnel who incorrectly operated 5 times on the same patient, 3 times on the brain, over a period of several years, and the patient himself for returning to the same hospital after the first botched surgery. After a State commission curtailed their work, news media asked hospital authorities what sanctions had been imposed and the hospital had lost 'the papers' on the matter.

-"dr." Bill Wattenberg of KGO News Talk Radio in San Francisco saying, "there is no cure for 'stupid'", and then validates his point every time he opens his mouth.

-John and Kate Goslin and the media who reports on them.

-The producers, director and anyone involved in making the flop film, AMELIA.

-The beauty contestant winner, Miss UK, formerly Miss London, who withdrew from the Miss World Beauty Pageant after getting into a bar brawl with Miss Manchester.

-Carly Fiorina who announced her candidacy for U.S. Senator in California, running in the primary against fellow (neocon) Republican Chuck Devore, one of which will face incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer in next years general election. Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlitt-Packard, cites her organizational skills after being named one of the 20 worst CEO's of all-time by Money Magazine and after being drummed out of her CEO job by HP's Board of Directors.

-California U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer for being Barbara Boxer.

-Showboat independent U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman for his obstructionism in just about everything.

-Cross eyed Roman Catholic Benner Elk, North Carolina U.S. Representative Virginia Foxx illogically saying passage of health care reform is a greater national threat than terrorists.

-Former Ebay CEO Meg Whittman's self paid-obnoxious ad's that run every 5 minutes on radio and TV stations for her bid to be Governor of California. Whittman confesses she has not voted in most elections, saying, "shame on me".

And now, the winner:

Polygamist Raymond Jessop from the Yearning for Zion Ranch, a fundamentalist Church of Christ of Latter Day Saints organization Located in Eldorado, Texas was convicted of child sexual assault on a 15 year old girl, also a resident of Zion Ranch.

According to court records, Raymond, already married with 9 wives and having countless children (DNA Tests are continuing), was found guilty of sexual molestation after the girl was 're-assigned' from his brother to him under God's sanction. It seems Zion Ranch had it's own, living 'prophet' who governs such matters. Unfortunately for Raymond, his 'prophet' did not govern the justice system and Raymond will be doing significant prison time.

All of this brings question to evolution, doesn't it?

More next week.
