And I've Got No Right to Take My Place With the Human Race: Television's Biggest Jackholes
What's T.V. without a couple of jackholes? With Archie Bunker as the godfather of ignorance, bigotry, self-importance and general asshattery, followers had a lot to live up to, but that doesn't seem to be a problem. When I saw the debut of Showtime's "Nurse Jackie," my first thought was "Hey, there's a gal I can get along with." She's snippy, snarky and cynical--what's not to love? But as we've come to know her, it's clear that Jackie's high is her number one priority. She's a fairly shitty mother and in between popping pills, she cheats on her devoted husband and lies to everyone she knows. So though this could easily be an all-male list, that bitch belonged with her fellow jackholes.
5. Nurse Jackie:
She's nice to about one out of four patients, but you don't want to be the one to piss her off. A bitch to co-workers, friends and family alike, never get between this girl and her pills.
4. Louie De Palma:
One of the worst bosses in television history, he stole, he lied, he treated everyone with equal contempt. Louie's the little jackhole that could.
3. Gregory House:
The second pill-popper on the list is coincidentally also in the medical profession, but you probably would want him on your side if you had a weird condition. Still, his deductive talent is only reason this guy should be allowed to live (and I don't buy his love for Cuddy, one bit).
2. Ben Linus:
Plenty of people have had terrible daddies and gone on to live happy lives, but this guy ain't one of them. Misery loves company and so does jackhole Ben--so he can fork with their minds, keep them in cages and pretend he's more important than he is. Talk about ruining a beautiful island...
1. Larry David:
The ultimate rich, white, self-indulgent, self-important, self-obsessed, offensive, ignoramus ever to have delusions of grandeur. Larry tries to hide his jackholery behind humor but never fails to expose himself as the biggest jackhole of them all.
