Palin has maintained that Obama’s effort to combat child obesity — which was recently aided by the passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act — is one that seeks to take away “God-given rights to make our own decisions.” Some have since slammed that comment as Palin’s demanding that Americans cling to their “God-Given right to be fat.”

C&T: Why won’t this stupid cow Palin STFU? My apologies to those of a bovine nature.
For the second year in a row, The Daily Beast crunches the numbers for America’s 55 largest cities, ranking their brainpower from first-to-worst. How does your hometown fare?

C&T: I’ve lived here for 15 years and I can tell ya the level of STUPID around here astounds and amazes me daily. Some may counter that the average IQ dropped significantly when I moved here. Could be. But the stupid here reflects not so much lack of education as lack of common sense. As in NONE. Nada. Zip.
For every quality reality show like “Top Chef” or “The Amazing Race,” there are a dozen degrading, offensive and downright tacky reality programs that make TV just a little bit dumber. Plenty of shows out there appeal to audiences’ worst nature and are chock full of kitschy, guilty pleasure value (we’re looking at you, VH1). But every so often we come across a show so indefensible, it makes us cringe at the fact that it was even picked up. Here’s a collection of some of the most inappropriate and classless shows to ever make it on television.

C&T: I’m not a fan of “reality” TV shows and never watch them; I think they’re more bullshit than actual reality. I will admit a guilty pleasure: I have a huge “thing” for Gordon Ramsay. Maybe because he’s a fellow Scot. Anyway, it takes a LOT to disgust me. A LOT. But I can honestly say I absolutely despise the pedophile fest “Toddlers and Tiaras“. Those poor kids are forced to perform by morbidly obese, ugly mothers with big hair living vicariously through their little girls. These women will mortgage the farm to pay for everything BECAUSE WINNING IS EVERYTHING. What the fuckin’ FUCK!? I hope they choke on their stretch pants.
