Now taking nominees for the 7th Annual Late H. Lee Atwater Award for Right Wing Evil

On Halloween, the desiccated corpse of the Late H. Lee Atwater will rise from his grave in South Cakalacka and present the award to the person who most exemplifies the very personage of right wing evil.

You, my friends, have a key role to play in this, as it will be you who will decide which person will be the recipient of the hallowed title of Most Evil Right Winger.

Last year, the winner was the two-headed monster, known as The Koch Brothers: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021674695

This year, the winner could be anyone, but it's up to you to decide who that will be.

So give me your nominees and on Halloween Night will will come together to summon the late Godfather of Right Wing Evil to bring the winner into his clammy embrace.

1. It'll be a crowded slate, for sure

but I have to choose the reprehensible Kochs, as they are the chief financiers of the whole shitaree.

3. I nominate Mark Goodin

He was Oliver North's Campaign Manager in 1994 Senate race in Virginia. He almost got a convicted felon elected to the U S Senate (Chuck Robb won by about 56,000 votes). He also was involved in an attempt to tar then Speaker of the House Tom Foley (from Wikipedia--- On the day Foley officially became speaker, the RNC began circulating a memo to Republican Congresspeople and state-party chair people called "Tom Foley: Out of the Liberal Closet." The memo compared Foley's voting record with that of openly gay Congressman Barney Frank, with a subtle implication that Foley was himself gay. It had been crafted by Republican National Committee communications director Mark Goodin and by House Minority Whip Newt Gingrich. In fact, Gingrich had been attempting to convince several reporters to print it. The memo was harshly condemned by both political parties. Republican Senate leader Bob Dole, for instance, said in a speech in the Senate chamber, "This is not politics. This is garbage."

Atwater initially defended the memo, calling it "no big deal" and "factually accurate." However, a few days later, he claimed he hadn't approved the memo. Under pressure from Bush, Atwater fired Goodin, replacing him with B. Jay Cooper)
