Comments from the judges
James Joyner voted Mike Nifong first second and third.
Mr C wrote-
"1 Mike Nifong, the DA who doesn’t need testimony
2 Judge Kristine Cecava gives child abuser nothing
3 Judge Edward Cashman gives child rapist 60 days"
"1. Vermont's new slogan "we don't believe in sex offender punishment"
2. Short people are deprived prison - call the ACLU
3. Granny got a gun"
The Professor wrote- "Nifong, I think, is manipulating the situation for his
own political advantage, or was; I don't think he's stupid, necessarily, just evil."
Note- The Professor voted early. TFM doesn't know if he holds the same view on Nifong after the latest news out of North Carolina but I respect his opinion.
Don Surber wrote on the Florida Supreme Court. "Didn't they retire this award a few years ago? Don also said. "Pretty bad year when the guy who railroads college
kids on fake rape charges finishes 3rd."
And the winner is...........
Nifong joins Princeton University, Mel Gibson, Jimmy Carter, Florida Department of Children and Families, Hilton Hotels, The New York Times and Andrew Tilley as 2006 Knucklehead of the year finalists. Please come back tomorrow to see who the Grand Knucklehead of 2006 will be. We're even going to have a special master of ceremonies. Have a great weekend and a Happy New Year.
