Biggest Dicks of The Decade: 2000-2009

One thing I think everyone can agree on is the fact that this past decade has had more than its fair share of dicks. While almost everyone can agree on the dickishness of certain slimy characters out there, certain others inexplicably have their passionate defenders.

To my mind, however, over the past ten years quintessential dickishness has been defined by a select few.

So here it is, my list of the Biggest Dicks of The Decade:

The War On Terror Charade: 14-Year-Old Terrorists and The Fight For Western Civilization

"I'll go along with the charade
Until I can think my way out
I know it was all a big joke
Whatever it was all about"

      - Bob Dylan, "Tight Connection To My Heart"


Whatever one may think about the so-called "War On Terror", there are certain stories that both boggle the mind and dramatically highlight just how ridiculous this War Without End really is. One such recent story concerned the release of yet another innocent man, Mohamed el-Gharani, from America's notorious gulag down there in Guantanamo Bay.

Now, sadly, the release of an innocent man from Guantanamo is hardly a rare or unique occurrence, but this case, as you'll see, was particularly disturbing.

Mad Medieval Mutterings of Misogynistic Mullahs: Iran vs Saudi Arabia in "Always Blame The Victim"

or Iran vs Saudi Arabia in "The Ascendancy of Asininity"

Ok, so two weeks ago you heard about the delightful tale of the 19-year-old woman in Saudi Arabia who, for the crime of being gang-raped, was sentenced to be tortured and permanently disfigured - to call flogging by its real name - followed by 6 months in prison. Well, today we're reminded that, when it comes to full-on barbaric, feudal, Dark Age Mentalities, the Saudis are relatively timid and moderate compared to their brothers in asininity in the Iranian judiciary. I can almost hear the Iranian taunts now: "Hey, Saudis, you call that a sentence? How about death to an 18-year-old for the crime of being raped by her brothers and forced into sex slavery by her parents? Bet you can't beat that, you pansies!"

The "Iran So Far Away" Must-See Clip Rave

First for X'mas '05 they gave us the classic "Lazy Sunday", about two guys on a quest to eat a few cupcakes and see "The Chronic-what?-cles of Narnia". Then last X'mas they gave us the brilliant "Dick In A Box", featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg singing all about the ultimate romantic X'mas gift. There have been other great clips in their SNL Digital Shorts series, but none as fantastic as those two... until now. Last Saturday night, during the season premiere of SNL, they finally gave us a third classic clip on par with the other two. It's called "Iran So Far Away" and, although it may be a bit early for X'mas this year, it's yet another great gift.
