I've decided one of the new improvements to this blog will be regular features. I'm dubbing Thursdays "Special Awards" day, for special people. Each week, I'm going to feature an idiot that made the news with his or her own stupidity. Please feel free to submit your own idiots as you stumble across them, as there's just no way I could find them all.
And even as I type, I have a great idea. I recently stumbled on a website that allows you to post a poll on your blog. You, valued readers, will decide the weekly idiot.
I'll post the poll, along with links to their respective stories. Read the articles (if you aren't already familiar with them), then cast your vote. Winners will be announced the following week.
This week is a head to head match up, since I didn't have much time to find more dumbasses. In the blue corner, diaper-donning astronaut Lisa Novak. In the red corner, (alleged) compulsive masturbater William Barret.
Enjoy the new feature. Vote at the bottom of the left column.
