The Top Ten Conservative Idiots (Week 1)
January 15, 2001

Tell a friend about this articleTell a friend about the Top Ten Conservative Idiots

John Ashcroft races to the front of the pack in Week 1, based mainly on his reputation as a racist, homophobic, gun-toting, fundamentalist maniac. Not someone whom a lot of people would want as Attorney General. Katherine Harris resurfaces after some time away from the front pages, back in the spotlight as the investigation into voting irregularities in Florida continues, with Jeb Bush close behind. Usual suspects fill out the rest of the chart. Linda Chavez fades away into tenth place - a true conservative idiot, politically sinking herself as the nominee for Labor Secretary. We doubt she will return to the chart in the near future.

THIS WEEK   LAST WEEK TOTAL WEEKS
1 John Ashcroft - As conservative as it gets, this is a scary pick for Attorney General. - 1
