Cord Jefferson at Jossip names a couple of real stinkers Jermaine Dupri, Tim Robbins, Paul Reiser, Casey Gane-McCalla and of course Pete Wentz.

Jefferson writes:

Tragically, HuffPo, once a fountainhead for interesting, angry liberal opinions, is fast becoming the Hollywood club of news blogs: everyone’s invited, but the celebrities have the run of the place. And boy are they ruining it.

And…

While we can’t disagree with much of what Gane-McCalla has to say – Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly are idiot bigots – it’s a little hard to take discussions about racism seriously from a guy of color whose most famous song is a celebration of humping white women. Sample lyric: “You and me baby can start making up for slavery.”

Ha! Do more! There’s WAY more than just five dumb celebrity bloggers on Huffpo – that could be a daily feature…on somewhere besides Huffpo. Ahem.
