33. Support Keith and buy his book
The Worst Person in the World: And 202 Strong Contenders

Nightly on MSNBC, the controversial and outspoken Keith Olbermann counts down the day's top stories with satire and style on his show Countdown with Keith Olbermann. One feature of this increasingly popular newscast is his daily award for "The Worst Person in the World," which is bestowed upon the careless, the clueless, and the just plain cruel.

Now, Olbermann brings these legendary offenders together in The Worst Person in the World: And 202 Strong Contenders. Awarding bronze, silver, and gold medals, Olbermann offers a brash appraisal of humanity at its lowestpolitically, socially, and morally.

From Amber Frey to Ann Coulter, from Donald Rumsfeld to the FOX News Channel, from sports figures to schoolteachers to stupid criminals, no one eludes Olbermann's gimlet eye. Winners include:

22-year-old Ronald MacDonald, who was accused of theft at his place of employment . . . Wendy's
Mario Edney, the bus driver who literally threw a woman under the bus when she complained he bypassed her stop
U. S. Olympic skier Bode Miller, who revealed that he has often competed while drunkand that he may do so again
Rush Limbaugh, who, among other things, admitted to taking some pleasure in the kidnappings in Iraq "because I'm eager for people to see reality"
FEMA, for sending planes full of injured Hurricane Katrina evacuees to West Virginia when they were supposed to meet medical teams in South Carolinanot once, but twice
As the recipient of a bumper crop of medals, Bill O'Reilly receives special attention. Olbermann offers readers a handy "O'Reilly Code" of key terms to aid in the understanding of "this generation's Joe McCarthy."

Olbermann also explains his methodology for choosing these unlucky winners, presents new honorary "Worsts," and in the end names one person "Worst in Show."
