THE SEVENTH WINNER of the Curmudgeon’s coveted Buffoon Award is — [drum roll, flourish of trumpets] — Robin Williams!
It’s rare that we dip into show business for our Buffoon Award, but there are times when someone’s behavior simply cries out to us. So it is with Robin Williams. As a special treat, this matter came to our attention on April Fool’s Day.
In a few brief moments, Williams not only uncloseted himself as a flaming creationist, he also managed to enrage the nation of Australia. Check it out. [Addendum: the original video we used here is gone. This one is 7 minutes long. The anti-Darwin part starts about 3 and a half minutes in.]
For those who may not know it, Darwin did indeed visit Australia.
Congratulations, Robin Williams! Enjoy the award. You’ve earned it!
[History note: The first Buffoon Award winner was John West; the second was WorldNetDaily; the third was Mark Souder, Creationist Congressman; the fourth was The Intelligent Designer; the fifth was Ronda Storms; and the sixth was Bobby Jindal.]
