Top 10 Villainous Politicians

1 Nov
Mark Twain said, “Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself…”. Over a hundred years later this is still disturbingly true. And these slippery sonsofbitches are still leading us into one blunder after another while desperately trying to convince us that they know what they doing. So before they lead us into the next big blunder think of these 10 movie politicos, and remember: they’re iditots.


1.Senator Joseph Paine- Mr. Smith Goes To Washington

The jaded Washington fat-cat who has been corrupted by the system and who is determined to make idealistic upstarts ‘yield’.

2. Emperor Palpatine- Return of The Jedi

The ruthless tyrant who is consumed by his quest for supreme power and shoots lightning from his fingers. 

3.Greg Stillson- The Dead Zone

The sleazy and scandal-ridden bureaucrat who uses babies as human shields
4.Edward Longshanks- Braveheart

The legacy who is committed to the cruel enforcement of the social order and trying to ‘breed out’ the Scots.
5.Commodus-Gladiator

The vain and spoiled sociopath who seeks ‘one kind word, one full hug’ and will butcher the whole world to get it.

6.Rufus T. Firefly- Duck Soup

The funny and sometimes charming simpleton who you might like to have a beer with but who’s blundering can lead your nation to war.


7.Ming the Merciless- Flash Gordon

The despot whose rule is based on slavery and robots; and launches attacks on Earth out of boredom.


8.The Mayor- The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three

The incompetent and oblivious imbecile who doesn’t even get out of bed when a subway car filled with his constituents is hijacked.
9.Mayor Larry Vaughn- Jaws

The sensible guardian of the state who remains incredulous even after his constituents are eaten by sharks.
