Back in 2005 I wrote a book called 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America – and Al Franken is #37. It was about the chuckleheads in our culture and politics who were, well, screwing up America. At number 100 were Paris Hilton’s parents for raising such a twit. Paris was “hot” at the time so I figured, what the heck, and wrote this about her parents: “If they gave Nobel Prizes for the mom and dad who raised the most vapid, empty-headed, inane, hollow, vain, tasteless, self-centered, useless twerp in the entire country – maybe in the entire world – Rich and Kathy Hilton would be on their way to Stockholm to pick up the medal.”
