1. Former Chicago Mayor Richard Daly:

Made sure to leave the residents of Chicago with no city fireworks for the 4th of July holiday in an “effort to reduce taxpayer expenses”…reportedly several hundred thousand dollars in police expenses.  That concern for saving the taxpayers money wasn’t on display then when Hizzoner requested an around the clock, permanent, armed security detail…at taxpayer expense…for his own protection since leaving office.  Seems the corrupt former mayor of Chicago has no problems when firearms are used to protect his own ass.

BONEHEAD of the Week


2. Ashley Rachel

Ms. Rachel penned a column for the website eHow titled “Do you need a gun license for a .22 caliber”?

The column was so rife with factual errors, such as the claim that a .22 caliber pistol buyer needs to “complete a federal firearms license application”…you know, the form necessary to become a DEALER… that the author was an instant decision for the BOW award..  Good heavens.  Ms. Rachel has a degree in Journalism from the University of Georgia.  I wonder if they taught her to do basic fact checks before making a fool of herself?  Although the piece was penned in December of 2010, the statute of limitations for boneheadedness never runs out.  You may view her idiocy right here:
