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.

Good riddance to this silly decade.

/yeah, I know there's still another year of it, technically. But tedious pedants are douchebags too.

FWIW (which is not much at all), my top ten douce list, in no particular order:

JFP
Drew Peterson
Kanye West
Joe Francis
Joe Biden
Chris Dodd
Glenn Beck
The guy who yelled liar during Obama's speech (regardless of the veracity of the statement....)
Chris Brown
Tucker Max
Rush (I believe he made the last Douche of the Decade list)

Cowboy Spencer: While Joe Francis is undoubtedly a douche ... he cannot compete with President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, former majority leader Tom Delay, or any other number of political douches.

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?


My vote goes to you for still believing that "hundreds of thousands" of Iraqis have been killed.

P.S. You forgot Obama!
 
2009-12-22 04:23:23 PM  
sn0wblind: Everyone called for that reaction after 9/11. Now people are judging in hindsight.

BS. Only idiots ever thought Iraq was behind 9/11.

I nominate Kevin Trudeau, fraudulent infomercial salesman of bogus "alternative" medicine products and books. He sells bullshiat to sick people and tells them that the entire government and medical establishment engage in a giant conspiracy to hide the real cures for their illnesses. He's been fined millions of dollars repeatedly by the FCC and on he goes.
 
2009-12-22 04:27:02 PM  
Joe Francis! You have made the world a worse place! You have assaulted and raped! You have degraded thousands! You are a terrible human being! You are Gawker's Douche of the Decade!

I dunno. Sounds like a pretty good gig if you can get it.

When did Gawker become White Knight Media, Inc.?

While he's indeed a douche and a criminal, I wouldn't even call him the worst of the quack alties. A ton of them are actually actively killing people.

For sheer stupidity cloaked in pseudo-intellectual arrogance, I nominate Deepak Chopra.
 
2009-12-22 04:34:07 PM  
Spencer Pratt escaped the list?

Indeed. Their finest effort in ages. I saw them at Molson Ampitheatre and it was a great show.

How was Madoff not picked? He cleaned more vaginas out than anyone on the planet.

Douche? Not really.

He's more of a turd sandwich.

Komplex: The Angry Hand of God: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell was a great book, although I certainly can't speak for the movie. Screw you, Gawker.

You sound Frat.


Thread over.

Pete Wentz's work in the last 5 years deserves at least a nomination.

True, but I've actually seen him in the TV. The active killers in fake medical professions aren't on as much, so he's had more chance to annoy me.

Chopra plugs bullshiat, but unlike Trudeau doesn't have me convinced that he leaves a trail of slime wherever he goes.

FTFY.

One of their pages says they took Carrie Prejean off the list. Wasn't she the Miss USA contestant who thinks she lost after honestly answering a question about her personal beliefs in a non-offensive way? Why would she have been on it to begin with?

THIS.

There should be a feminine douche list. There's a fountain of possibilities there.

Double_B: cant believe Glen Beck didnt make this list.

They addressed this at some point, making a distinction between blowhards, morons, assholes, and true, personal douches.
 
2009-12-22 04:48:36 PM  
It's hysterical how Tucker Max basically flamed out his entire career with that atrocious, narcissistic turd of a movie. I'll watch it when Rifftrax gets their hands on it...

Didn't the stupid fark self-finance it too?

Beck would fall under the same provisions Bill O'Reilly did, I imagine.

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.
 
2009-12-22 04:52:54 PM  
Colin Cowherd should be on this list.
 
2009-12-22 04:53:00 PM  
Epsilon: 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.

Meh. Why do people assume moneymaking=brains? Like the guy in Citizen Kane said, it's no trick to make a lot of money, if all you want to do is make a lot of money.

garvin32: Please. Joe Francis doesn't even come close to this guy.

Oh yeah. I think you're right. But Joe Francis is pretty high up there.

Maybe Madoff loses some points since he's now in prison for ever.

The Weeners on Gawker, defining the difference btw ahole and dbag, is hilarious and also informative. It made me rethink what I thought I knew about the 2 terms.

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

He made men/boys kill 1,000,000 times more kittens....

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.
