And there's some stiff competition. Over at Shakesville, Jeff Fecke has fisked two really ridiculous articles, both filled with misogyny so insane it has to be read to be believed. The first is from the Aspen Times Weekly, and is by a guy who claims that the white male is being ignored in this year's elections. The second is in The LA Times, and is even more egregious because the writer claims to be a liberal.
But despite the qualifications of those two, I feel like I have to give the award to Justin John Boudin of Minnesota for the following:
The 27-year-old Minnesota man pleaded guilty to fifth-degree assault charges for losing his temper on the way to class.Nice work, Justin. You have managed to reach new heights in douchitude with these actions. I can't wait to see how you follow this one up.
According to the criminal complaint, Boudin was waiting at a bus stop in August when he harassed a 59-year-old woman. Witnesses say he yelled "Why don't you show me some respect?" at the woman.
The complaint says when she took out her cell to call police, he punched her in the face. When a 63-year-old man tried to stop him, Boudin hit him with a blue folder. Then he ran, dropping the folder.
