Somebody call PJ and the gang from 'My Boys' STAT! Because John Gibson of FOX News needs a douchebag intervention.

Hours after the death of actor Heath Ledger, Gibson was on the radio making snide comments about the unfortunate event. He claimed that Ledger was a suicidal weirdo who probably offed himself because of the downturn in the stock market, or because he had seen the Obama-Clinton debate the night before.

(Apparently, it's looking as if Ledger's death was accidental, but I'm not up on the story yet.)

He's been called out for being an insensitive boob (and I'm being polite) by Keith Olbermann (who crowned him the World's Worst for the day), Joe Scarborough ( "This is about as callous and harsh as anything I've ever heard. It is unspeakably rude."), and Mika Brzezinski ("That makes me nauseous.") so far, and I'm sure there'll be more to come.

I'm sure there's a nasty Toobits Award for his Christmas stocking by the end of the year.....

I would say that is the most insensitive thing I've ever heard said following a celebrity's death. Gibson's parents apparently didn't bring him up right...

They brought him up right in the sense that he's a fascist asshole with nothing between his legs or in his head, anyway. Like most neo-con sheeple/brownshirts, he lifts his hand in the air with the other c***s in secret, probably.

Too bad somebody can't arrange an overdose of meds for this guy.
