So claims a just-released ad from the congressional campaign of Rep. Allen West, who is "leading the fight against the radical left's attack on God and Israel." Let's break down the herp-derp…
* The fauxtroversy began when conservative news outlets noted that the 2012 Democratic platform omitted references to God (while maintaining a large section on faith) and didn't explicitly affirm Jerusalem as the capital of special-est Middle Eastern country that ever was. Democrats were foiled by a Crtl-F search! Just include a reference to "Goddamned Jerusalem" and this would have all been avoided.

I always thought Mayor McCheese was the worst mayor in the country. He's completely beholden to a corporation and has been letting the Hamburglar terrorize the streets of McDonaldland for years.
But has he even gotten so drunk that he broke a breathalizer machine? Nope. Has he ever flashed his tits to a crowded bar? Again, as far as I know, no.
So it would seem there are a handful of other mayors out there who blow the competition out of the water when it comes to sleaze, corruption and general bad decisions. There are ten of them to be exact, and they comprise Spike's list of the Top Ten Misbehaving Mayors.

Item! Conservative blowhard and Viagra mule Rush Limbaugh recently chortled that he mistook Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for Bill Clinton’s "shoeshine guy" during a run-in at a New York restaurant. This is understandable, given that Rush's prior experience with shoe polish has been limited to minstrel shows.
Although Villaraigosa claimed he was not offended, don't expect Rush to get off so easy when explaining his gaffe to Clinton's actual shoeshine guy, New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez!
