2010 has been a banner year for douche-baggery. Maybe not since Monica Lewinsky failed to do her laundry have we seen such sterling examples of the baser nature of public figures. The worlds of sports, entertainment, and politics were all rife with douching.
There were the New York Jets and their piss poor manners in the locker room. There was Brett Favre and his junk. In fact, Brett Favre’s junk might be a contender all on its own.
There was Spencer Pratt being a douche just by existing, then raising the stakes by staging a fake divorce to improve his career. There was Jesse James cheating on Sandra Bullock with a tattoo model. There was Mel Gibson just being himself.
And let’s not think only men were douching it up this year. Senate candidate Sharron Angle made some waves in the Massengil bottle when she put air quotes around the word autism in a speech. Like it’s imaginary or something. Kate Gosselin persisted in pimping her offspring out to TLC for shoe money. Anyone who signed up to be Real Housewife is a douche-suspect. And Snooki. Just because.
And we can’t forget the douche of the hour Kody Brown of Sister Wives.
This is just a small sampling of the douches of the past year. My partner in crime stark. raving. mad. mommy. and I are embarking on a quest to find the Top Ten Douches of 2010 and we need your help. Mainly because there were so many douches running amok that we can’t remember them all. So we’d like to to leave comments for us to help us along. Who do you think was a Top Douche of the year? Who resonated Douchitude most deeply with you? Who deserves to wear the Summer’s Eve Douche Crown?
Comments on this post and at SRMM’s blog will be open until Saturday night. On Sunday we’ll whittle it down to the top twenty and open a week of voting. Then we will unveil our Top Ten Douches of 2010 list, complete with douchtastic profiles of the winners!
So submit your nominees and may the best douche win!
