The 13 Most Annoying People of 2013 #2

This petulant chocolate toadstool was the defense’s star witness in the George Zimmerman murder trial, but hers is a star that burns very dimly indeed. Watching her barely conscious bulk crammed into the witness stand as she grunted her answers, half of America said, “Wow, she’s stupid” while the other half of America thought, “Wow, she’s stupid” without saying anything. Which leads me to my next selection…

This fey, pompous, snooty, lime-farting Enemy of All Things American had the gall and fundamental lack of honesty to call Rachel Jeantel a “smart cookie” after an appearance on his show that revealed Jeantel to be dumber than a hippo basking in an African mud pond. All year long, Morgan railed against guns, racism, Americans, American guns, American racists, and American racists with guns. Here’s hoping that some meth-addled gun nuts somewhere in the American heartland devise a gun big enough to shoot Piers Morgan all the way back to England. - Taki's Magazine

Your Say

Honestly Jeantel didn't boether me nearly as much as the people who treated her like she was a shining goddess. Yes, she's a barely-sentient troll, but there's nothing wrong with that. Treating her as if she's more than that... there's a problem.

You left out the word chocolate. That's what made the description of Mizz Jeantel so delicious. Petulant Chocolate Toadstool. Possibly the most apt description of a bipedal humanoid I've ever read.

Referring to Ms. Jeantel as a "smart cookie" is very much in the same spirit as the media referring to Michelle Obama as "one of the most beautiful women in the world". Remember that howler? Thankfully you don't hear it so much these days. Personally, I think it's downright cruel since stating what is so obviously untrue only serves to highlight and underscore the shortcomings of the person.

Only in the loosest of characterizations can #3 be considered human.

Sorry about that obfuscation. Fixed.
