5. Sinead O'Connor. Though her open letter to Miley was no doubt well-intentioned and fairly kind, we can't forgive Sinead for provoking Miley to be even more obnoxious and appear in even fewer articles of clothing. Today, Miley tweeted a variety of hateful things at Sinead (and took an unnecessary swipe at Amanda Bynes), suggesting that she did not take kindly to being called out in a public forum and told, essentially, to grow the eff up. In addition, we got a whole new set of frightening (NSFW) Miley photos, in which her breasts and genitalia appear to be struggling to break free from her clothing. Stay in there, guys! You can do this! —SRD
4. The Republicans Who Hijacked WWII Veterans Trying To Visit Their Monument. In case you somehow missed it, some WWII veterans traveled to Washington with the Honor Flight program, only to find the WWII monument was closed due to the shutdown. Here is the story the conservative media blared out non-stop: Tea Party congresspeople, upon hearing about this, rushed from their offices to heroically help these victims of Obama's refusal to cooperate. There they "stormed" (i.e. gently moved aside) the barricades. Someone should have made an exception for the WWII monument. We all agree on that, but all the parks were closed. All of them. Honor Flight is a wonderful, non-partisan program that both parties love to support, and there were Democratic congresspeople at this event, too. Even more in reality, the Tea Party is the reason that the park was closed.
