I'm a bigger douche than Joe Francis, but I wasn't smart enough to come up with the 'Girls Gone Wild' concept. I at least give the guy credit for making multi-millions of dollars. I haven't achieved that with my douchiness.

Take the former President and VP - these guys are responsible for a war that killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. How can Joe Francis measure up against that?

I hope they serve beer in hell was a pretty good read, but Tucker is clearly a douche bag. No more than your typical douche bags running around, just more famous. I don't think Francis or Max deserve the title. There's gotta be bigger douchebags out there.

I also only know two of the names. They went out of their way to come up with obscure douches.

That's why so many people voted for joe Francis - the voters also never heard of anyone else. That is one way to rig a vote to go in the direction you want.

Saying they are purely to blame for issues stemming from actions of former leaders is pretty naive. Everyone called for that reaction after 9/11. Now people are judging in hindsight.

Such stiff competition. Have to admit that I didn't recognize most of the names until I clicked the links.

And yet, so many people from celebrities (like Kanye above) to regular schmucks that mistakenly think they're cool missing from the list too.

After that all happened, she broke her contract repeatedly by doing all sorts of unapproved media appearances. When the pageant company dropped her, she sued them and tried to make herself a martyr for the conservative movement, as though everything that happened was because she was a conservative Christian.

Still pales in comparison to most of the other douches, though.

Trudeau is true scum--peddling fake medicine AND fake "free money" and using paranoia ("secrets THEY don't want you to know about") it do it. Being raped up the ass sideways with a pineapple is too good for him.

Firebug: Beck falls more under the "Racist/Fascist Psychopath" label than just a regular douche

Professional troll.

As I mentioned earlier in another thread, recall that Beck was once rather successful on CNN, the left-leaning foil to Fox's right-wing tendencies.

He's just tailoring to his audience/whatever will make his wallet fatter.

Same with Rush/Mann Coulter/etc

Steps in creating a backdoor political attack:

1. Make a list that pretends to name the worst X in the world

2. Pepper it with some popular people of the day for padding

3. Place people with political ideologies different from yours, and label them as well known X's



How is Carrie Prejean a douche? Someone asked her a question, and she answered it. Granted, she had no business going on tour and doing the rest of the things that resulted from that statement.

However, how is the guy that asked the question not a douche? Did he not inject politics into a beauty contest? Did he not ask a questions expecting an honest answer, and then get angry when an honest answer was given?

Some jackhole asked her an improper question, and she gave an honest, polite answer. For that, she is a douche? Sounds like someone is angry because she is hot.

From TFA, quoting Wikipedia on Francis' behavior while being deposed as part of a lawsuit over unpaid gambling debts:

Steve Wynn's attorneys reported that Francis repeatedly passed gas during the deposition. "As the court will see from reviewing the video clips of Francis' deposition, his utter contempt for the judicial system is apparent, including his repeated attempts to disrupt the deposition with flatulence," the lawyers wrote.

1. As mentioned above, we all know Perez Hilton is a complete douche.

2. For examples of Prejean's douchebaggery, just look at her "interview" with Larry King. She refuses to answer any of the questions he asks her, claiming they are inappropriate when they definitely aren't, and she pitches a fit and takes off her mic when it becomes clear that he won't just let her plug her book. What really sucks is that he eventually backed off and let her get the plugs in.
