New York, NY. In a crushing landslide win, Sarah Palin has won the popular vote at RudeOrStupid.com for stupidest person on the planet, beating out such worthy challengers as Brett Favre, Lindsay Lohan and George W. Bush.
The site was unveiled in October 2010 with the purpose of answering one question: “Are you rude, or are you just stupid?”™ Commented the founder of RudeOrStupid.com, “It’s the online version of the brick you want to throw through your TV screen.”
“We weren’t surprised by people’s opinion of Sarah Palin in general,” says RudeOrStupid.com’s founder. “But we were surprised that she beat George W. Bush in such a crushing landslide. He’s not even close. I suppose it’s just one more popular vote he didn’t win.”
