Right Wing News has unleashed The 8th Annual “20 Most Annoying Liberals of 2009.” You can — and will — want to read this once a year article, here. I don’t understand how they could have narrowed it down to only 20.

Just to give you a little taste, first off, here are the honorable mentions for the list:

Joy Behar, Barbara Boxer, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Anderson Cooper, Chris Dodd, Maureen Dowd, Dick Durbin, Thomas Friedman, Glenn Greenwald, Maurice Hinchey, Arianna Huffington, Jesse Jackson, Hank Johnson, John Kerry, Ezra Klein, Paul Krugman, Pat Leahy, Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, Michael Moore, MoveOn, Lawrence O’Donnell, Markos Moulitas, Clarence Page, The New York Times, Ted Rall, Charlie Rangel, Rick Sanchez, Shep Smith, Pete Stark, John Stewart

Also, here’s a sample entry for #4, Barney Frank:

Barney Frank: He’s an utterly corrupt, nasty tempered, frighteningly incompetent, toweringly arrogant, prissy little [email protected] whose only quasi-redeeming qualities are a gift for lying that would make a professional con man blush and a sort of ugly charm most associated with drunken frat boys picking on hapless underclassmen for the amusement of their friends. Naturally, given that he exemplifies all the worst qualities that people hate about Congress, Frank has been in office since 1980 and will probably remain there until he’s a doddering old codger whose aides have to wave the vultures away to keep him from being mistakenly carried off. Thanks a lot, Massachusetts! First Ted Kennedy, now this creep.

Defining Quote: On what planet do you spend most of your time? Ma’am, trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table. I have no interest in doing it. —Barney Frank, to one of his constituents at a Town Hall meeting
