10 » Former Boy Scout leaders David Hall and Glenn Taylor. For toppling an ancient rock formation in Goblin Valley then posting their action on YouTube, acting like heroes.
9 » Boy Scouts of America. For its awkward approach of finally allowing gay Scouts but continuing its ban on gay Scout leaders.
8 » West Valley City Police Department. It took Gill to finally do a proper probe of the police shooting of a 21-year-old woman, which Gill found was unjustified.
7 » Chad Bennion. The Salt Lake County Republican chairman made a fool of himself and his party when he chastised Gill for his well-explained findings in the West Valley City police shooting and made wild and unsubstantiated accusations against the Democratic district attorney.
6 » The Utah Education Association. For firing its lobbyist, Kory Holdaway, for what appeared to be petty turf jealousies. Holdaway, a former legislator, had good relationships with lawmakers and was an effective UEA spokesman.
5 » Gov. Gary Herbert. For an utter lack of leadership. No position on Medicaid expansion. No position on Swallow. But at least he said Shelby’s ruling on same-sex marriage caused chaos. That’s a position, sort of.
4 » Sen. Aaron Osmond, R-South Jordan. First he suggested we do away with compulsory education. Now he wants parents who put their children in public schools to sign a contract and face possible prosecution for violating it. He obviously has decided he needs the Eagle Forum’s support if he wants to seek higher office.
3 » Sen. Stuart Reid, R-Ogden, Bob Fuehr and similar commentators. These folks can only echo Eagle Forum President Gayle Ruzicka’s "activist judge" shrieks to denounce Shelby’s decision, because they don’t have a good legal argument.
2 » John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff. Need I say more?
1 » The payday-lending industry. This group should get the lifetime achievement award.Next Page >
