#5: Sarah Palin
Like Pat Boone, Dave Mustaine and their Tea Party supporters, Sarah Palin has spent the last four years of her life devoted to one thing and one thing only: Hating President Obama and attacking everything he does and anyone who supports him.
Palin's antics are widely known and have already been covered extensively when she was nominated the #2 most wanted fauxlebrity. But this barely addressed her activities with the Tea Party or FOX News.
One of Sarah Palin's first orders of business post-election was to generate opposition against the Affordable Care Act. Specifically, Palin accused the intended legislation of including "Death Panels" that would decide who would or would not receive care.
PolitiFact later named Palin's accusation their 2009 "Lie of the year."
A year later, Palin once again demonstrated her contempt for the Obamas by bringing cookies to a school in Pennsylvania and ranting about the "nanny state run amok" shortly after Michelle Obama had announced her intent to call attention to childhood obesity.
And perhaps most comically, Palin blasted the 2011 White House Christmas card for featuring their dog, Bo, instead of emphasizing traditions like "family, faith and freedom."
Palin did this even as her employers were sending out Christmas cards depicting foxes beating the other networks in a sheep-sledding race or roasting the NBC peacock over an open fire.
Ingrid Newkirk's publicity stunts may reek of craziness, but she does at least deserve the benefit of a doubt that, just maybe, she could actually believe in her cause.
Palin does not deserve that same benefit of a doubt. While Newkirk frequently courts controversy, Palin manufactures it out of nothing.
