The Ass Clown of the Month Award for August, 2013


Yes, Dear Readers, it is time once again to roll the drums, blare the trumpets, and roll out the tattered and stained red carpet to honor an individual whose actions have earned him (or her, gotta worship at the festooned altar of full equality) the prestigious designation of Ass Clown of the Month.


As it is every month, making the choice among so many eminently-qualified candidates was very difficult. With 535 members of a do-nothing Congress, two worthless gubernatorial candidates here in Virginia, countless far-right and far-left social and political nutcases across the country, and the murderously brain-dead members of the various al Qaeda franchises across the Middle East, it would be easy to throw up my hands* and drop the whole thing as too hard to do. But there was one amazingly ludicrous wingnut this month whose actions stood head and shoulders above even the most useless members of Congress. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the August, 2013, Ass Clown of the Month -

Casey James Fury


Who, you ask? Casey James Fury is the individual who, because he needed an excuse to not be at work, set a fire that destroyed the $400 million nuclear submarine Miami while it was in drydock at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in May, 2012. This week, he was sentenced to 17 years in prison and ordered to pay $400 million in restitution to the Navy**.

For costing the Navy (and you and I as taxpayers) nearly half a billion dollars by trying to get out of work, Casey James Fury is declared our Ass Clown of the Month.

It'll be tough for September to top that one, but I'm sure it will work out.

Have a good day. More thoughts coming.

* Or just plain throw up.

** Yeah, good luck with that.

How about he doesn't get out of prison until the money is paid back.

Why Bill you do have a winner here. I say for next ass clown the idiot who killed his wife, posted the photo of her dead body on his facebook page saying he killed her, should be given a chance at winning this prize. I mean he's a real keeper like this smart catch.

There is always a lot of competition, but this guy deserved to win!
