Worse ‘Feeding Frenzies’ Than Sarah Palin

pigeons-in-a-feeding-frenzy.jpg
As we mentioned yesterday, McCain Camp’s Steve Schmidt told the WaPo that the feeding frenzy on Veep Nominee Sarah Palin was the worst he’s ever seen. Not that we can blame someone for having the memory of a gold fish. It often helps the voices.

Anyway, we came up with a poll of other feeding frenzies. There were many: The OJ Trial, Monica Lewinsky, Jonbenet Ramsey, Lacy Peterson, Chandra Levy, Natalie Holloway, Martha Stewart going to jail and Elian Gonzalez.

Then some of our readers suggested more. Princess Diana’s Death and Anna Nicole Smith.

And then we thought of more: Terri Schiavo and Janet Jackson‘s nipple.

Did we miss one? Leave your answer in the comments…or tip box.
