New York, NY (PRWEB) December 9, 2010

In a crushing landslide win, Sarah Palin has won the popular vote at RudeOrStupid.com for stupidest person on the planet, beating out such noteworthy candidates as Brett Favre, Lindsay Lohan and George W. Bush. Not to be outshone by the former governor of Alaska, Victoria Beckham took the top slot in the list of rudest people Earth has to offer.

“We weren’t surprised by people’s opinion of Sarah Palin in general”, said RudeOrStupid.com’s founder. “But we were surprised that she beat George W. Bush in such a crushing landslide. He’s not even close. I suppose it’s just one more popular vote he didn’t win.”

While Sarah Palin’s triumph over former-President Bush is impressive, Victoria Beckham’s place at the top of the list of rude people, places or things is a bigger surprise. “We were puzzled by Victoria Beckham,” the site’s founder commented. “She even beat out New York City in rudeness. That doesn’t come easily. She’s obviously put a lot of effort into her attitude.” Perhaps shedding a bit of light onto the site’s philosophy, he added, “At least she’s not stupid.”

RudeOrStupid.com monitors news of rudeness and stupidity around the globe and spreads the word via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. “We’re thrilled with how fast this is catching on,” said the site’s founder. “Thousands of people have joined the conversation and the number keeps on growing. We feel like we’ve gotten thousands of high-fives just for posing the question.”

The site was unveiled in October 2010 with the purpose of answering one question: “Are you rude, or are you just stupid?”â“¢ The site was designed to give everyday people the chance to express their opinion about the talking heads, celebrities and other attention-seekers they are confronted with in the news. Commented the founder of RudeOrStupid.com, “It’s the online version of the brick you want to throw through your TV screen.”

The first official results of the RudeOrStupid.com poll come one month after the site formally launched and reflects the opinions of people from around the world. The site uses a database of 12 million entries to allow people express their opinion about public figures, companies, places and sports teams around the world.
