Since this was Thanksgiving and that means is the perfect time to countdown the top five political turkeys of 2011.
It's been quite a year filled with controversy and scandal here to help us break it down as -- -- A bright part TV and a contributor to big Hollywood Larry O'Connor nice to see it.
Well you're starting -- time is -- their to in the mornings.
-- this is my breakfast Turkey come -- I think Thanksgiving very seriously since -- over breakfast lunch and dinner Larry nice to see this -- let's start with number five on your political turkeys -- Occupy Wall Street and Michael Moore.
Yes they go to get.
Guys a lot like the Turkey.
Occupy Wall Street -- these precious little dirt bags can make the New York bankers Wall Street bankers look sympathetic I'm actually on the bankers' side at this point.
Because of their lawlessness in there there there vandalism and the smell but -- they've raised 500000 dollars they haven't spent it on -- -- -- that's for sure.
And Michael Moore is connected to them that the Turkey day so he's the butterball right I know I'm sorry give -- too easy get the robberies there who is a bit on your list.
Spot number 40 for crying out loud number four was old Nancy Pelosi don't know Pelosi.
No help me out there yeah -- sorry it's Warren Buffett's secretary.
I know yeah.
Warren Buffett's secretary she has become the most sympathetic woman in the world and all because Warren Buffett himself as a cheap skate.
They just because he can't figure out a way to pay her without putting -- into -- higher tax bracket he's changing our entire tax system.
Just so he -- Obama can make a political point here's the advice Warren Buffett just pay your secretary.
With stock options and that she can pay the -- capital gains tax rate which is lower its.
So she gets into a different the different tax bracket that's a bit silly but why can't you figure that out of that does that and that does.
Keep talking about -- a regular basis -- at number three on your list of course this is this is timely in the headlines this week the super committee.
First of all.
Doomed from the start Patty Murray senator Patty Murray was on this committee -- he's a wonderful woman but -- not the president of the senate Mensa club if you know what I mean.
This was not going to be any kind of success and who named it the super committee by the way.
Whoever named this the super committee has a very low bar for super they called -- a super beverage they call this Chevy Volt a super car.
Should I go on.
No I'm gonna have some seem a little bit later this afternoon.
It's my -- -- -- what it was -- A number two on your list here's what you you mentioned before Nancy Pelosi but her V.
-- -- -- send a switch to a new Turkey because she drives you to drink.
-- Nancy Pelosi and the only Nancy Pelosi can somehow get invited into this exclusive IPO for visa cards.
And by the way she was invited.
By old guy who used to work for her and now he's a lobbyist for credit card company she gets invited into -- -- visa IPO.
Makes a ton of money while she sits on legislation.
Two that would have hurt the credit card companies and that's when sixty minutes questions are about it she just looks at Steve croft and says.
Do you have a point here but I doubt we have a point Nancy -- how we're done with it.
And finally number one drum roll please.
Race if any.
-- how did -- not -- Anthony -- it was the story of the year he's the congressional member whose member will always remember -- Let's before we get into the little you know nasty bits and pieces of this story can we just remind ourselves that Anthony Weiner and the whole escapade I know it's an easy punch line.
But he was a really bad guy.
What he did was borderline predatory.
And when he got caught he lied -- raided people he bullied reporters and ultimately he blamed an innocent man my -- my -- and -- bright part.
He blamed him and accused him of -- and it has it out.
A he's a horrible guy and remember all the Democrats that jumped to his defense right yeah there were -- in -- because they know that he is a problem.
So I'm glad Anthony Weiner is -- I hope we never comes back and he was the Turkey of the year.
Larry O'Connor nice to see this morning happy Thanksgiving enjoy the Turkey and the -- -- Turkey passing by Thanksgiving -- thanks don't appear on the.
