The competition was tough. So many candidates, but there can only be one true Asshat. To tell the truth, there was someone else in mind for the honor and the article was almost complete when I was told of an article in a Canadian newspaper written by the eventual winner.
While it is certainly nothing new to hear a leftwing nutjob slamming Canadian sports celebrity/broadcaster/conservative/favorite son Don Cherry, it is the background of the article's writer that made this an easy choice.
Montreal Gazette sportswriter Jack Todd is this year's Asshat of the Year.
Not for his condemnation of Cherry, or his being offended by some of Cherry's antics. Todd wins because this jerk-off isn't even a real Canadian. He is an American by berth.
What ensured his victory is he is an American Vietnam War deserter who had the audacity to pussy out of his responsibility in the 1970's, flee to Canada, and now decades later criticizes Don Cherry - a man who knows more about being Canadian (and living up to commitments and responsibilities) than Todd ever will.
Imagine a Canadian turning his back on his own country, scurrying to the U.S., then proceeding to criticize a popular, home-grown American icon.
Benefiting from a then-Liberal government, Todd is now holds Canadian citizenship. More is the pity. This asshat possesses absolutely no moral or ethical ground by which to give his opinion on anything or anyone, much less Don Cherry.
Typical of a leftwing loon, I guess. No surprise that he has turned his running away into a novel.
Also not surprising is his career in the Canadian media, especially in Quebec (you think the American MSM holds a leftwing bias? That's nothing compared to the Pravda-inspired media outlets in the Great White North).
Just stick to hockey stories and high school football scores, Jack. Leave the criticism of Canadian icons to real Canadians.
My brother-in-law wins my local "Asshat of the Year."
LOL! He musta gone up there by boat.
Damn Canadian spell-check! lol
Corrected on original version.
Who is Don Cherry and why should I care?
Don Cherry is a hockey commentator and very conservative. Next to Mark Steyn, he’s my favorite Canadian.
Ok. I honestly had no idea who this was talking about.
We already have this guy here. David Frum
Does it for me....
Uhh, yeah. It’s a shame such a song should come from a Texan. I’m just sayin’...
Oooh, Frum for Asshat of the Year. Or Reid. Or Maher. Or Gibbs. Or Obama. Or Pelosi. Or Assange, although not American.
So many asshats.
And before him there was Peter Jennings.
"If hooking up one rag-head terrorist prisoner's testicles to a car battery to get the truth out of the lying little camel-shagger will save just one Canadian life, then I have only three things to say: "Red is positive, Black is negative, and make sure his nuts are wet'."
Frum is Canadian. I would probably put Obama as not American born as well with Asshinge.
Ohhh, duh, that explains what makes him the bizarro asshat for us.
I wish I could pull off wearing lapels as big as Don’s. His shirts are the best...they fit his style to a tee.
